Building trust with her patients is the proud hallmark of Dr. Roopa Gupta’s medical oncology and hematology practice in Berlin
Oncology is a multifaceted medical specialty. To be truly effective, one must have a relationship not just with the patient but also their family. It also means being there for one’s patients and family through an extremely difficult journey, to form the basis of a reliable support system and responding as a physician. That’s why Dr. Roopa Gupta does it. It is the unique satisfaction she receives from being so trusted and relied upon, during such a crucial time and for such compelling reasons.
Dr. Gupta provides medical oncology and hematology services along with her practice partner, Dr. Rabindra Paul, at the Regional Cancer Care Center in Berlin. Inspired to pursue a career in medicine by her physician uncle, Dr. Gupta obtained her medical degree at Boston University School of Medicine and is Board Certified in internal medicine and oncology. Her experience includes a geriatric fellowship at Harvard Medical School Division
on Aging and a hematology/oncology fellowship at the National Cancer Institute at NIH, where she conducted research on lung cancer and other rare cancers. She arrived here from Chevy Chase, where she also practiced oncology and hematology.
“Each patient who walks through our clinic door is treated like a family member, not just by me but my entire team,” said Dr. Gupta, who likes to swim, run, read, cook and do yoga when she’s not practicing medicine. “We strive to be pre-eminent when it comes to providing the best, latest and most personalized care. We also emphasize preserving the quality of life while we providing the latest treatment options.”
Dr. Gupta said that she is extremely proud about how fast her program in Berlin is growing. They can offer almost any chemotherapy currently approved for oncology and hematology patients in their infusion center at RCCC, which greatly helps their patients get superior care locally, rather than having to travel long distance while coping with such illnesses.
HERE’S A TIP FROM DR. GUPTA:
“In oncology, early detection is key to cure and survivorship. I tell all my patients to be self-aware and that if they ever notice any change, lump, mass or anything that’s different, bring it promptly to their healthcare provider’s attention. If they feel their concerns are unheard, or they are not satisfied, get a second opinion.”
