Doctor or hospital ? (during chemotherapy)

Dear all,

My mother has to undergo adjuvant chemotherapy for breast cancer. We are planning to take treatment from Fortis Memorial Research Institute -- FMRI Gurgaon.

The treatment will be under Dr. Vinod Raina sir. (I think everybody knows him in the field of medical oncology- he is quite famous and well reputed in delhi circle).

Some reviews about FMRI Gurgaon are negative as per internet search (regarding nursing staff). I am afraid of secondary infections / other complications due to poor nursing staff.

There are other much more reputed hospitals for cancer treatment in Delhi

I am confused -- what to choose -- a reputed doctor or a reputed hospital ? How is the reputation of FMRI GURGAON ?

I am also having chemotherapy for breast cancer. I faced same situation. Don't trust on Internet review. Some people may have issue with staff. I take my treatment in Hinduja hospital at Mumbai.

The staff is also equally important. Don't only go for big hospitals. My sister had severe problems while giving chemo thro' veins. Though the Doctor & Hospital was very reputed - the staff was careless.

I found FMRI nursing staff to be very good....
