    I would recommend Dr. Chamakjian. He has been my Dr. for 7 years and has always been thorough in testing, diagnostics and treatment; as well as open and informative in discussing my health issues and treatment paths, including keeping informed of any health issues and/or testing that I have had for all other conditions. You don't find that in a lot of doctors. He has treated and currently treats other members of my family. I have complete confidence in him in hemotology and oncology.
