Dr. Anwar is professional, friendly and kind; which are qualities I needed from my medical provider during the Chemotherapy process. I had many concerns and questions. Dr. Anwar always responded, whether during the appointment or from my phone messages. I highly recommend Dr. Anwar and the Oncology staff. I am grateful for the care provided and kind concern shown by Dr. Anwar.
in Mesa, AZ |
When it was suspected by my family Doctor that I should be sent to an oncologist to determine if I had leukemia, I was scared and worried. When I made the appointment with Dr. Anwar, she explained in detail what the procedure would be for making the diagnosis. She was matter-of-fact and kind, which I appreciated. Since my diagnosis, she has been very reassuring and positive. She has dealt with several complications that I developed in a timely, professional and kind manner.

Dr. Anwar is a wonderful person. She is professional, personable and so easy to talk to about all of my health concerns. She makes you feel so comfortable in every way as if you were an old friend.(She even says I look like Sophia Lauren!)It was very comforting to know she was able to treat me at then rectify my issue and sadly released me from her care as I will miss our visits together. In all my 79 years I have never met a doctor who has cared for me as Dr. Anwar and I feel so very privileged

Once I received my diagnosis of cancer, I needed to know who were the two Dr's that would be treating.me. Meeting Dr. Anwar was a pleasant relief, She is very knowledgeable about various cancers and the necessary amount of Chemo needed to defeat this disease. She answered all of my questions and concerns, She explained that the amount of chemo I would be given was light, to assist the radiation. I would probably not loose my hair not get sick. I felt calm after our discussion.
in Chandler, AZ |
As a retiree new to the area with an existing cancer diagnosis, I was very concerned about finding the right physician. Dr. Anwar was so kind and reassuring and knowledgeable about my situation.

I am so pleased to have her help in this journey.

Dr. Anwar has been my husbands oncologist for almost a year and we are very pleased with the medical attention that he has been given. She is very professional and very knowledgeable about her field. She takes the time to answer our questions and makes sure that we know what is happening or going to happen every step of the treatment. She even gave us her cell phone number in case we had questions during the initial treatment period. We highly recommend this doctor!

Dr Anwar has been excellent, no nonsense and straight forward to any answers to my specific questions.

Thank you Dr for your help in getting me through this ??

Dr. Anwar was my doctor through out my bout with breast cancer. She was always so sweet and so encouraging every time I seen her. She would even hug me each visit. And she always took care of any issues or concerns I might of had at the time. On my first visit I asked if I would have a team. She told me yes and started setting me up to meet each part of the team right away. Which was way nice to meet them ahead of time. All I can say is I loved loved Dr. Anwar. Highly recommend.

There is no doubt that I would recommend Dr. Anwar. I had just moved from Oklahoma City to Arizona when I began to feel ill. Had been treated for leukemia 3 yrs prior and swore never again. Endless hours of large containers of chemo for what seemed like days on end in Oklahoma. Was admitted to the hospital and Dr. Anwar was assigned. She assured me that it would not be as it was before, she was right. 6 mos. later PET scan is 100% better. I feel BLESSED to have her.
in Queen Creek, Az |
My wife has cancer which can be an overwhelming experience. The first time my wife meet Dr. Anwar she for the first time was given confidence in her outcome. I can't speak intelligently about Dr. Anwar's knowledge about treatments because i'm not educated about cancer treatment but by my wife's results speak for themselves. What i can speak about is the confidence and since of optimism Dr. Anwar gave my wife about her treatment. For this i will be eternally grateful. Thank you Dr. Anwar

Dr. Anwar is a breast cancer expert. I would not even think about going to anyone else. From the time I first saw her, she had me see an amazing breast surgeon to get surgery and start radiation treatment within a week. Dr. Anwar is highly knowledgeable, aware of all the cutting age data and is beautiful, kind and compassionate. She saved my life!

Gilbert, AZ |
My initial visit with Dr. Anwar was fine. She treated me with kindness and respect The week following all of my labs and B.M. biopsy, Dr. Anwar called me and said Do you remember what we were looking for? I said Yes, multiple myeloma. She said, Unfortunately that is what we found. The next week she asked where I got my labs done. She hadn't even seen them! Then she said, You do not have cancer. You have MGUS. great news! she put us through a week of hell for nothing. I will not go back.
