dr aks was the best doctor ever, I was so scared on my first day of chemo. she came in. got on my bed whispered are you gonna eat your icecream, I said what icrecream. she went to fridge came out with a fudgesicle . I told her she could have it. and she jumped on my bed and ate her fudgescicle, while they started chemo. that's pretty personal and hands on. love her. will always remember her kindness when she left ., was so sad. as some of my other doctors were not so nice.

Wonderful, kind, caring physician. Diagnosed my husband w/NHL quickly and began chemotherapy. Excellent bedside manner, spends lots of time explaining options and answering questions. Sad to hear that she is leaving our local area (Yakima, WA). My husband and I are thankful for her thoughtful, compassionate, expert care.

Dr. Aka was thorough when looking for the right diagnosis and patient with my questions. She never spoke down to me or belittled me for not understanding something and had wonderful bedside manner.
