"Spent 6 months under her care undergoing very aggressive and state of the art treatment. During the entire time she and her staff were absolutely wonderful. I" took my treatments at her Encinitas facility and, although this may seem strange to the reader, the Chemo. room was an upbeat social place. After my treatments I was in full remission; but, because of my specific situation she recommended a stem cell transplant and referred me to the
Cancer Center at UCSD which was equally wonderful. I am now just on regular follow ups and tests with Dr.
with ever increasing gaps between appointments as time goes by without recurrence. Dr.
is knowledgeable, friendly and always willing to consult with her
when dealing with an unusual situation.

"She's really good. She treated me for colon cancer and now I see her only once a year. I've had real good experience with her. She's real friendly" and caring. The staff are all real professional, friendly and honest. My mom and dad were also treated by her. She's a very nice person.

Oncology

No one wants to hear "You have cancer." But if you’re facing this sometimes debilitating disease, an oncologist can help in the diagnosis, treatment options that often include chemotherapy and radiation and recovery.

The best way to cope with the stress of having cancer is to find the doctor and psychological support you need. Here are some resources to get you started.

Experts say the emotional and psychological side effects of cancer treatment can be as harmful to patients quality of life as the physical side effects.

While cancer patients often receive optimal care where they live, many travel to other cities — and sometimes across the country — for lifesaving treatment.

I have been visiting since

2014. She took me on immediately after I was diagnosed and started treating me right away. She took action to move me to the cancer center when no other physician would. I have also seen her physicians assistant

Dr.

is personable, thorough and extremely knowledgeable. She has a great bedside manner. The office is full of nice people also. I go back in January of 2015. I waited so long between appts because I have so many issues, I was "doctored" out, but I know it's time to get back in the groove.

I was seeing the resident oncologist, but now I see a PA for my follow ups. Most of my experience has been positive, but I would prefer to see the oncologist at least once a year. I have seen the same PA each time. The last time I was there, they recommended I see a radiologist, but never followed with me on that. I am moving out of state this month and will find a new

center. I feel that the PA can get off topic from my medical treatment, and I would prefer we stayed focused on my recovery.

Dr. Karides is a friendly, compassionate and highly competent doctor. I was with my father for all of his appointments and we were always impressed with Dr. Karides' attitude and approach. He was always willing to answer any and all questions and kept us well informed about the progress of treatments and any options. I believe his knowledge and skills were the major reason for my father surviving far longer than the statistics would indicate.
As excellent as Dr. Karides was, perhaps the best aspect of his firm (
Escondido Oncologists Provider Name Locked
) was the truly outstanding nursing and administrative staff there. Blood tests are done on site which streamlines the whole process. The front desk staff is friendly and very efficient. In three years there was never a mistake or any confusion despite many last minute changes.
The nurses are amazing. They are so vigilant that on several occasions they spotted medical issues that were overlooked by my father's visiting home nurse. I think the best indication of the quality of their care is that my father actually ENJOYED going to

for his weekly chemotherapy treatments. He once told me that it was the highlight of his week!
I pray you or a loved one are never in need of an oncologist. But if you do require one, I highly recommend Dr. Karides and his staff at

After surgery, it was a different story. She is a nightmare. I am allergic to many different types of pain meds, as well as having the medical condition gastro paresis, which prevents me from receiving oral pain meds in a timely manner. Because of this, I need IV pain control longer. She was convinced I was a drug addict. She limited the amount of pain meds I was able to receive and callied in a psychologist and pain care specialist to review me. The shrink was totally on my side and more or less said that Nadkarni should be censored. I did talk to the hospital people and they sent more people up, but I was so very frazzled, and in so much pain, I'm not sure how serious they took me. After I was home and healed some, I got a copy of my chart, and found that I had been receiving a drug that I am allergic to without my knowledge. I was going to
Escondido Oncologists Provider Name Locked
, but every attorney I talked to said I was too emotional and I would fail under review. All I know is I don't want another person to go through what I did. Nadkarni belongs in a lab. She has no business treating people.
