Biography

I’m a Radiation Oncologist with 13 year experience-journey having spent my learning and practicing years at multiple institutes witnessing the evolving paradigm of this discipline. My interests have been site-specific and technique specific with basic idea of attaining objective outcomes both in terms of failures/successes. The idea of joining Radiation Oncology stems from my affliction towards the physics from my school days and it helps me to enjoy, propogate and develop further improvements in this clinical faculty

    I have been through the corridors of this hospital for months and I have interacted with lot of in-house professionals but the radiology team have been most efficient, disciplined, and polite of the lot

  • Mrs Sunita Prasher, Mumbai

    Thank you so much for treating me with so much hardwork love and care. Your staff is equally amazing! God bless you all.

  • Mrs. Sita Bhambhwani

    Thankful to Dr Pranav Chadha, Dr Sandeep Goyle and Dr Menon for their support and care which proved to be good supplement to their technical abilities.

  • Amar Thakur, Mumbai

    He gave us the hope and maybe the courage and strength to go through this traumatic phase of life. He explained about prognosis of the treatment. He was infact an Angel in disguise. He recommended for 6 cycles Chemotherapy and probable Radiotherapy. During treatment he always motivated us and also used to play with my brother as if it was his son.

  • Vijayalaxmi Shivram Shetty, India

    Overall it was good experience, the staff is co operative, the only complaint my mom used to have was that at times the duration of radiation used to vary, sometimes it used to be of longer time and sometimes used to finish too early. Dr Pranav has been very co operative, very prompt response for any concerns, some nurses are very kind to be precise Nurse Hata was very caring and humble.

  • Ganesh Pudusery, Mumbai

    It was a good experience overall with treatment at KDH (Radio Oncology) under the guidance of Dr Pranav Chadha & team. All our questions and doubts were clearly and very patiently answered giving us confidence in the entire process.

  • Rameez Momin, India

    Doctor: Very positive vibe, good consultant, guiding towards proper treatment path, always available to help and very cooperative.

  • Lalitha Thiyagaraja, India

    The overall experience from planning till post therapy review was excellent. Whenever there were any routine issues like skin problems, they were promptly attended to by Dr Chadha and team. The waiting time for everyday treatment was minimum and the allotted time was more or less followed.

  • Ms Muziranenge Anysie

    My stay in Kokilaben Hospital has been pleasant and profitable. I really appreciate the work of the doctors along with dedicated nurses who never cease caring for patients.
