He listens to any concerns I may have and provides the best solutions, taking time to make sure I understand everything. I would highly recommend Dr. Aksentijevich.

Dr. Aksentijevich and his staff are simply the best. Dr. 'A' has the most calm and caring demeanor. I was diagnosed with terminal metastatic cancer and every one on staff that I have had any type of encounter over the past year have always been amazing.

Great bedside manner. Answered all of my questions. Dr. A must have selected the best med for the cancer I have because the results after only 4 treatments were impressive. My blood counts recovered in the first 3 weeks after 3 of the 4 transfusions .

Dr. Aksentijevich has expertly guided me through my chemotherapy experience with the greatest care, the most authentic and sincere concern, and with cutting edge proficiency in his field of oncology for the past six years. I regularly thank my Higher Power that Dr. A has been my physician through these perilous times and has successfully waged the battle against this sometimes scary disease. I can only speak of Dr. A with the greatest praise. I recommend him to family and friends without reservation.

I have been seeing Dr. Aksentijevich, or Dr. A as we refer to him, for over a year. He is patient and understanding about my Lymphoma and his staff are very professional and attentive. Now that I am taking chemotherapy treatments I appreciate the time that Dr. A takes to be certain I truly understand the results of my blood work and how closely I am being monitored. The results after three treatments are amazing and although it has been tough going I know I can depend on Dr. A and his staff to provide me with the best care possible. I highly recommend Dr. A to anyone that is seeking a knowledgeable and capable Oncologist.

This was my first visit and I could not have been more pleased. I am presently under six specialists and Dr. A is the first one to take the time to talk to me, ask about how I was, what my problems were, and explain what he would do and the outcome. Couldn't be happier.

Totally professional and compassionate practice. Dr. Aksentijevich clearly explains options and treatments. I hope that I do not have to refer friends and family but would definitely do so. Very good doctor and staff. The experience is comforting especially when nervous about medical condition.
