Hemchandra Mahaseth, MD
I speak: English
My gender: Male
Where I practice
I am originally from Nepal. I decided to become a physician right after high school, when I realized my calling was to serve people who are sick and I have never regretted the decision. It has been a pleasure and privilege. After graduating from Medical University of Warsaw, Poland, I joined University of Minnesota to do research in the field of blood disorders and cancer, which was followed by my internal medicine residency at University of Cincinnati, Ohio, and hematology/oncology fellowship at Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia. I have been in clinical practice since 2012. I started with Karmanos Cancer Institute of Wayne State University in Detroit as an assistant professor of oncology, where my practice was focused in GI cancers, sarcomas and clinical research. I was fortunate to join the Oncology/Hematology department of Kaiser Permanente in 2015.
About my practice
I believe in caring for patients with compassion, kindness and up-to-date knowledge. As a patient, you choose to trust us to take care of your health. It is our calling to do everything in our power to take care of you. I have special interest in gastrointestinal cancers (esophagus, stomach, small intestine, colon, rectum, anus, liver, bile tree, pancreas, neuroendocrine tumors) and sarcomas, but I treat all blood disorders and cancers including breast, brain and lung malignancies.
How I thrive
When I am not working, I am either spending time with my wife and children, hiking in the mountains, reading a book, listening to classical music, or cooking.
