Good morning Dr Shah. Greetings from the philippines. I am Dr Yasmin Dapit, a new head and neck surgeon practicing in zamboanga city. I have heard about you during my fellowship training at the department of surgery of the philippine general hospital. Recently we have 2 patients in our general hospital with huge head and neck tumors. May we refer these patients to you for opinion. One is a 49male with parotid tumor, second patient is a 53 female with maxillary ameloblastoma, extending to the anterior cranial fossa. We would highly appre iate if you could share your opinion in the management of these patients. Thank you very much sir...

Good morning,
As of yesterday, my soon to be 77 year old father was diagnosed with cancer of the stomach, relating to the esophagus. They will biopsy a small spot on his liver today.
My question, I had read on blogs that you were highly recommended for treatment for that type of cancer. However, I see here that your expertise is head and neck.
Can you tell me if you do treat stomach cancer? We live in NC, but I am already trying to find the best doctor/cancer center for my father.

Thank you for your question. Our physicians do treat stomach cancer. If you would like to make an appointment with a Memorial Sloan-Kettering physician, please call our Physician Referral Service at 800-525-2225 or go to http://www.mskcc.org/cancer-care/appointment. Thanks for your comment.

Dear Dr Jatin Shah,

As a consequence of Hoshimoto's Thyroiditis, a complete thyroidectomy was performed on me a month back at the Breach Candy Hosp in Mumbai.

Frozen sections were made of the specimen along with lymph nodes.

Slides were viewed at the same hospital and reviewed by Dr Anita Borges at Raheja Hosp. The conclusions don't match.

I wish to courier the slides to your path lab for an opinion. Please be so kind and inform me where I should send them and what it would cost me.

Thanks,

Ravendra Jain
Mumbai.

Dear Dr. Shah,

Thank you for all you did for her - I and my entire family will be forever grateful to you.
