Last Edited:

CUMBERLAND COUNTY, N.J. – Dr. Kush Sachdeva, a triple board-certified physician in internal medicine, medical oncology, and hematology, was nominated by a patient who said simply, “Dr. Sachdeva saved my life.”

The nominator expressed his gratitude to the doctor and the whole Inspira staff at the Frank and Edith Scarpa Regional Cancer Pavilion for his nine months of chemotherapy that resulted in his (so far) five-year cancer remission and likely cure.

“Dr. Sachdeva is a very considerate and smart professional,” read the submission.

Dr. Sachdeva is the managing partner of Southern Oncology-Hematology Associates, a private practice affiliated with Inspira Health. He is actively involved in multiple committees at Inspira and is currently the Director of Clinical Research and actively participating in industry and National Cancer Institute clinical trials.

Distinctly, Dr. Sachdeva is very involved with the Indian American Cancer Association, a charitable organization involved in a mission to advance cancer care and education for physicians of the Indian subcontinent.

Dr. Sachdeva is also an avid reader, passionate poet and enjoys Indian music.
