I would recommend Dr Ahari and staff to anyone. He has been very patient and understanding during all of my treatment for breast cancer. I never felt rushed during my appointments. Dr Ahari called me personally with test results eliminating back and forth phone calls. My opinion and concerns were always taken into consideration during my treatment.
