"I provide my patients with the same quality of care that I would want for myself or a member of my family."
As a Hematologist/Oncologist, Dr. Kala Seetharaman has seen significant advancements in the treatment of cancer since she began practicing medicine in 1985. “There have been major breakthroughs – from identifying the causes of cancer to the development of new treatments, as well as in supportive therapy,” she said. “Each cancer is different and even the same type of cancer can impact each person differently. The key is to understand how the disease affects each person and to develop a comprehensive treatment plan from there.”
A Board-Certified Physician, Dr. Seetharaman received her medical degree from Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Sciences, Government Medical College and Vijaynagara Institute of Medical Sciences in Bellary, India. She completed her residency in Internal Medicine and her fellowship in Hematology/Oncology from Massachusetts General Hospital.
She believes in focusing on preventative medicine, advocating for her patients to lead a healthy lifestyle by eating well, exercising every day and enjoying life. When responding to her patients’ questions and concerns, she makes it a priority to be accessible, not only to talk with them but to provide specific information that is relevant to their condition.
“I believe in tailoring treatments to fit each of my patient's own set of needs,” according to Dr. Seetharaman. “Treating patients individually is an art, combined with science.”
