I read an old article on Dr. Preya in the White Plains Hospital Health Matters magazine. The article was about Dr. Preya treating a specific patient who had breast cancer. The patient turned out to be a cousin. When I was diagnosed with breast cancer, I remembered that article impressed me at the time, so I decided to make an appointment with Dr. Preya.

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.
