Patient Comments (4)
in Bronx, NY |
Such a caring and knowledgeable physician. He was very meticulous in explaining exactly what to expect with my surgery- both before and after, and then when i went for the first follow up , again, he was very clear and answered all questions.

Amazing doctor! I had a rare tumor that was cancerous and he took so much time to explain everything to me and my family before he did the surgery. He is very caring and very thorough. I would highly recommend him.

Dr Athanasian treated the glomus tumor under my fingernail. He was meticulous, and very honest about the surgery and pain. He was clear about the procedure and expectations post-surgery. He is THE expert for this tumor and I feel very fortunate that he was able to help me. He was calm and measured and very confident in the process. I felt there was no one better. His nurse Ro was warm and provided lots of information and made me feel at ease. She was the comic relief to his straight man.
Excellent physician & person. Took time to explain everything. Did wonderful surgery & follow up.
