Patient Testimonials


"On October of 2008 I was a young energetic 48 year old career woman diagnosed with stage 3 colorectal cancer. As traumatic as the news came to me, I immediately began research for the best surgeon I could find in the Bay area.  I consulted with two local well known Cancer Center boards, but was not satisfied with my probabilities given to me of a permanent colostomy.  As I continued radiation treatments I was highly recommended to Dr. Ajay Upadhyay.  Upon my first visit I knew by the warmth, caring and professional consulting that Dr. Upadhyay was giving me an opportunity that no other surgeon would offer me.  He gave me hope that my iliostomy stood a chance of a reversal surgery later in time.  During my hospital stay at Alta Bates Summit Medical Center in Oakland, the care provided was exceptional.  I have also had the pleasure to be treated by Dr. Rupert Horoupian, Dr. Teresa Kim, and Giovanni Begossi.  You couldn’t find a better surgical team than “The First Surgical Consulted Group”.  You will also find the staff friendly, courteous, and professional."
