I wish I could give Dr Pachipala a million stars! I have been with him since 2017 when I ended up in the hospital with blood clots in my chest. He was very thorough ran appropriate test and took his time with me explaining everything. Most Doctors rush but he took time to make sure I understood everything. I trust him and his knowledge and would recommend him to anyone in need of a good Oncologist!

Dr. Pachipala was my dad's oncologist and though we only found out he had lung cancer after it was already very advanced and it progressed extremely quickly, Dr. Pachipala and Lacee provided him with the absolute best care and support. We were able to get in touch with them quickly when we had questions or needed medication changes, which was so important in those stressful weeks, and their responsiveness and compassion made a difficult time so much easier on our family.

I'm so thankful and blessed to have Dr. Pachipala, as my Oncologist. He's an amazing physician, with an excellent bedside manner, and he sincerely cares for his patients. I was diagnosed with stage 4/advanced NSCLC, nearly 10-months ago, and its only God's grace that has protected me and connected me to Dr. Pach and the Millennium family of medical professionals. In the beginning, I didn't know what to expect. I was taken aback by this diagnosis because I had an active lifestyle, I didn't smoke, drink, I was a healthy eater, most of the time, and I exercised. I met Dr. Pach while I was hospitalized at Memorial Hermann, and one of the charge nurses highly recommended him. I had worked for MD Anderson Cancer Center for years in the division of Path/Lab Med. I still have friends on staff at the hospital, and I once said, that if I ever got cancer, I would be treated nowhere but MD Anderson. But after praying about my decision, and where I would be treated, God gave me complete peace with Dr. Pachipala and Millennium Oncology. Because of his knowledge, commitment to excellence, concern for his patients, the treatment plan, and his unwillingness to give up on his patients, I've continued to make significant progress. During our office visits, he's very attentive, and he listens to the patients' concerns. He's truly a wonderful, caring, and compassionate physician. I'm currently still in treatment, but, I'm stronger, feeling better, and because of God's amazing grace, I'm looking forward to ringing the Victory Bell, and total victory over this disease. I'm truly grateful for the care I've received at Millennium Oncology, and I would highly recommend them to anyone that's facing this unfathomable dilemma.
