    Prolife Cancer Centre & Research Institute is one of the best hospitals for cancer treatment in Pune. I visited Prolife Cancer Centre & Research Institute during June 2022 since my mother was diagnosed with breast cancer. We first consulted Dr. Sumit Shah. After reviewing the reports, he suggested Surgery and by Chemotherapy followed treatment. I am very thankful to Dr. Sumit Shah since he helped us in each and every aspect during the entire course of treatment. He is a great doctor and more than that a very good human being. No words would be enough for us to thank him. I would also like to thank Dr. Sumit Shah for successfully operating my mother. Dr. Sumit Shah has given new life to my mother and happiness to our family.

    The profession of doctor comes with a big responsibilities. Dr Sumeet did a great job with my first ever health examination. He explained to me in a very clear manner. My critical surgery was carried out very smoothly. The staff members were also helpful and kind. I am so glad I chose Dr Sumit for my treatment and would highly recommend to anyone.

    We visited Dr Sumit to consult about a mole that was on my daughter's knee. We were scared as the first doctor we consulted had informed as it was squamous carcinoma. But Dr Sumit assured us that it was nothing much to worry about and explained us everything. The way he explained made us feel at ease and the surgery also went very smoothly. We will surely recommend him as he is one of the best doctor in this field.

    We are highly thankful to Doctor Shah and his entire team for the way out , efforts and care that they have taken for my father. My father suffered a condition of Oral cancer which involved a maxillofacial operative treatment. But thanks to god for having Doctor Shah sir for our aide. The entire facility and up system have been on the toes to take care of rhe patient and I observed it about all other contemporary patients as well. Also, the entire journey of physical, psychological healing was taken and lead by Doctor shah sir as a friend philosopher and guide. I firstly pray that nobody faces such a condition as we did. But if so with someone, me and my family suggests the name of Prolife Cancer Centre’s team and Doctor Shah
