BIOGRAPHY

Dr. Tejas Karawadia is board certified in Internal Medicine and practices at our Clay office. Originally from India, Dr. Karawadia graduated medical school from Pandit Deendayal Upadhyay Medical College in Rajkot. After graduation, Dr. Karawadia moved to the U.S. where he completed his residency in Internal Medicine at Jersey Shore University Medical Center in New Jersey, and his fellowship in Hematology and Oncology at Stony Brook University Hospital in New York.

During his training, Dr. Karawadia was recognized for his dedication to patient care along with excellent leadership qualities, and was awarded “Resident of the Year” in 2017 at Jersey Shore University Medical Center and later appointed as Chief Resident. During his tenure at Stony Brook, he also served as Chief Fellow.

Dr. Karawadia genuinely believes that compassion is at the heart of cancer care. He says, “Patients with cancer and their caregivers go through tremendous emotional turmoil and as oncologists, it is our duty to not only provide the most advanced evidence-based treatment but to also administer it in the most caring and compassionate manner as possible”. For Dr. Karawadia, there is no greater gift than connecting with each patient on a personal level and being a part of their journey.

“The patient comes first. It really is as simple as that,” Dr. Karawadia says. “Everything else, including doctors and other healthcare professionals, revolves around their needs and their specific objectives. There can be no compromises on this principle. We seek to treat every patient as if they were our family member.”

Highly sensitive to the patient’s beliefs and goals, Dr. Karawadia crafts specific treatment plans that are centered on the patient’s wishes and backed by the latest research that adhere to the highest possible standards. Throughout their cancer care journey, patients will see how hard Dr. Karawadia advocates for them at each step of the way, and they can be rest assured knowing their needs are foremost in his mind.

When not in office, Dr Karawadia enjoys playing tennis, cricket and spending time with his wonderful family.
