Why do I call myself the “Best Medical Oncologist in Delhi NCR”?

While there are dozens of people who claim to be the best, I believe the word “best” can be distilled into two main ingredients:

  • Qualification and experience: I have received my entire training from AIIMS New Delhi, the apex medical institute in the country and the mecca of health education and world-class medical treatment in India. In fact, I was a member of this institution for more than 12 years. In addition, I have been awarded honors including AIIMS Gold Medal for best Medical Oncologist. In addition, I have been the recipient of numerous national and international awards. Further, I have published numerous research papers in top medical journals in the country and abroad.
  • Ethics and principles: While qualifications are important, I believe what is more important is the “why” and “how” of one’s practice. Cancer is a extremely difficult diagnosis for any person and cancer treatment is often misunderstood, difficult, exhausting and expensive. Throughout my practice, I have always followed the principle of viewing my patients from a standpoint of “how would I treat my own family member?” Accordingly, I ensure that I always offer the best, most scientific, ethical and available medical care to my patients.

My goal is not just to be a doctor, but a partner and friend in need to my patients.

Research Experience

Proper treatment of cancer is based in science. The roots of scientific treatment is based on the principles of evidence based medicine, which ensures that only the most effective, scientific treatments are offered to patients with maximum benefit and minimum harm.

Accordingly, to be a good oncologist, one should have a strong research base in addition to being a clinician. Dr Gupta has numerous peer-reviewed publications in reputed Indian and International peer-reviewed journals.
