“There is no other facility such as City of Hope ... that embodies excellent patient care, research to make a difference in the lives of our patients, and all along making sure that this is soulful and patient centric.”

At an early age, Sanjeet Dadwal, M.D., learned about empathy and the importance of listening from his uncle, a homeopathic doctor who made a point of learning everything he could about his patients. “This level of compassion and dedication left an indelible mark on me,” he says.
 
Dr. Dadwal specializes in treating cancer patients who develop infections, a frequent complication of chemotherapy and transplants. His research focuses on understanding the mechanics of such infections, and finding new ways to control them.
 
After receiving his medical degree in India, Dr. Dadwal continued his training at SUNY Downstate Medical Center in Brooklyn, New York, and Charles R. Drew/Martin Luther King Hospital in Los Angeles.
 
At City of Hope since 2005, Dr. Dadwal has published dozens of peer-reviewed articles and oversees a long list of clinical trials. He praises the City of Hope staff for their “compassion and sense of urgency.”
