Dr. Preya saved my life in terms of my breast cancer diagnosed July 2023. She continues to be caring and supportive of my concerns. She monitors my followup rigorously and has a specific plan for the coming year in terms of monitoring my cancer and making sure it doesn't return. Her bedside manner is positive and caring as well as professional. She shares her expertise in a manner commensurate with my background in pharmaceuticals and she is never dismissive or condescending. I would recommend her and her team as WP Hospital wholeheartedly.
