“My patients’ determination and struggle to fight cancer pushes me to work hard to give them the best care possible,” said Dr. Dadla, a hematologist-oncologist who recently joined Mercy in Fort Smith. “I have been blessed with a fantastic crew of nurses, support staff and colleagues. They create such a positive vibe that I look forward to going to work each day.”
Dr. Dadla, who grew up in Mumbai, India, also was inspired by doctors who took care of his ailing grandparents and all the efforts they took to make them feel better. That compassion has carried over to his practice.
“I strongly believe in quality of life and treatments that give patients maximum benefit with the least possible side effects,” he said.
Dr. Dadla received a medical degree from Dr. VM Government Medical College in India. He completed a hematology-oncology fellowship in the Henry Ford Hospital at Wayne State University in Detroit. It was during his fellowship that he became interested in health care innovation.
He also is board certified in internal medicine and completed an internal medicine residency at the University of Connecticut Health Center in Farmington. His wife is a pharmacist.
Dr. Dadla is available for appointments at the clinic, 7001 Rogers Ave., Suite 200. The phone number is 479-314-7490.
