Akshiv Malhotra, MD

“When a patient has a new diagnosis of cancer, I do everything in my power to treat them with the most effective, cutting edge treatment that gives them the best chance for remission. Oncology is not just my profession it’s my passion and I treat my patients as I would my family. I have a team based approach and the most important members of the team are the patient and their loved ones.”
