Dr. Lashkari is a truly EXCELLENT doctor; thoughtful, compassionate, well-spoken and very knowledgeable. I switch from another oncologist to him and it was one of the best things I have done in my ongoing treatment for breast cancer. Totally recommend!

Its not very often that I bother to file any surveys. But I doing this this time. The most important thing I believe is not how clean the office is (and its very clean) Not how much time I wait to see the Dr. I measure someone by my level of TRUST. and CARE. And I trust and feel Dr. LASHKAR REALLY CARES AND THATS IS WHAT IS MOST IMPORTANT TO ME.

Arie in Reseda, Ca – Jun 01, 2017
After a nine month pregnancy my fiancé who is named tulip had developed to stage four and oncologist Ashkari tried his best to save her life. He immediately connected with his colleagues and formed a group of specialist to best plan a critical solution of treatment. My fiancé had over five or six tumors in random areas of her body, one being the size of a bb on her brain another six inches large on the outer hip. He destroyed all but the one on the brain which killed her. He is a great Dr.
