Dr. Ghai comes to Bakersfield most recently from Penn State's Hershey Medical Center, where he was an assistant professor. Dr. Ghai studied internal medicine and earned a master's of science and biomedical sciences degree from the University of Toledo, Ohio.

    Dr. Vikas Ghai is a overall great oncologist. He has been there for me since 2015. I would go to no other doctor for my treatments. He does an awesome job at everything he does and recommends for me.
