The attention and care I received from Dr. Preya Ananthrakrishnan and her staff at White Plains Physicians was instrumental on my road to recovering from breast cancer. Without the expertise, care, and kindness I received from Dr. Preya Ananthrakrishnan and her staff I would be lost and unable to cope with my breast cancer. The ease of my care has lead to my ability to return to my normal life quickly, and I am grateful and indebted to them. I would only recommend Dr. Preya Ananthrakrishnan and the wonderful staff at White Plains Physicians as well as White Plains Hospital for any woman's breast cancer care.

Dr Preya Anathakrishnan is one of the best physicians/surgeons I have EVER had the Great Good Fortune to meet. She is so so intelligent, skilled, perceptive, compassionate, and upbeat that I feel I have one of the BEST in the profession looking after me. She is also cooperative and made me feel that we were "together" when I asked some questions about the surgery she had performed. She researched the situation while I was with her, and was totally non-defensive in her response. I left her office with confidence that the Very Best had been done for me.
