NPN Mary is spot on and the nurses are very polite and explains in Detail what treatment is given. The front desk always welcomes me with a smile.

January 2024

I think he's a good oncologist. It's taken me a lot of research and the learning curve has been steep, but I do trust him. Trust isn't easy for me in this rapidly shifting oncology situation, especially as a spouse/caregiver. I feel so protective. This process is difficult even in the most favorable of circumstances but I know Dr. Assikis will be forthright, compassionate, practical and also with an eye towards what to expect moving forward. I think preparing patients for what might happen gives them the opportunity to mobilize inner and outer resources. He won me over with that.
