Dr Singh is not only a remarkably gifted surgeon, but a very kind and caring person who shows tremendous empathy and care for his patients. I went to him for surgery although I had resources near my home and am very glad I chose Sloan-Kettering and Dr Singh. I would strongly encourage those who have head or neck cancer to make an appointment for a consultation. He is a nationally recognized surgeon in his field and you will go to him knowing you have made a very good choice for your healthcare. He is as nice a person as he is a skillful surgeon and his staff is also right up there along with him. Melissa, his Phys. Asst is a very kind and caring person who makes a wonderful compliment to Dr Singh as both are second to none with regard to concern for their patients.

Joe, we're so glad to hear you're doing well! Thank you for sharing this comment; we have forwarded it to Dr. Singh.

We made an appointment with Dr. Singh after I was told to consult a head and neck surgeon and it was the best decision I made during a difficult time. His credentials as seen on the MSKCC website portay that he is a very educated, reknowned physician, surgeon and researcher but it was meeting with him in person that clinched the deal for me. He has an excellent reputation in the hospital as well as the operating room and is a very compassionate person, taking time to speak to family members as well as the patient. He is a very engaging and easy going person, very down to earth and humorous, but extremely skilled. While surgery is something we would rather not endure, I can honestly say this was a very good experience. All of the MSKCC staff are caring and professional and have the patient's best interest in mind. I would recommend Dr. Singh and MSKCC to anyone who has such a need. They are top notch, you will not find a better surgeon or facility.

Joyce, thank you very much for your comment. We have passed it on to Dr. Singh.

I read the NPR article where you recommend to your oral cancer patients to use a non-alcohol containing mouthwash. What are your thoughts on "oil pulling"? Does this have any effects on cancer prevention?

Edward, Dr. Singh is not familiar with oil pulling, but thanks very much for your comment.
