What People Say About Dr. Ivan Aksentijevich, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

DrA was obviously very busy on the day of my most recent appointment with him. Yet, he took a significant amount of time to answer questions and explain things that I felt I needed to know. In doing so, he gained my respect. I feel that he cares about the physical and emotional needs of his patients.

Dr. Aksentijevich was my husband's doctor after we received a diagnosis of renal cancer. After the kidney was removed, Dr. A was determined to prescribe Sutant for treatment, to the point of making us wonder if he had some financial involvement. Post surgery, Dr. A had a scan done. When we went to the appt for the reading of the scan, he focused ONLY on the Sutant. When I asked him the results of the scan, he said it was fine and became defensive about us not wanting the Sutant. We went Johns Hopkins. Our new doctor reviewed the scan Dr. A told us was just fine and it WASN'T. The renal cancer had spread and Dr. A didn't even bother to look. It was very obvious. The only positive thing about our experience with him is that it lead us to competent doctors who are now committed to saving my husband's life.

Dr. Aksentijevich goes to great lengths to evaluate the individual features of the patient's disease, and then applies his extensive knowledge and experience to recommend a treatment plan. He's very willing to consult with and consider the insights of other doctors when a judgement call has to be made. He's respectful of the patient's wishes, while at the same time being clear about his advice. On a personal level, he is friendly and obviously wishes the best for his patients.

Dr. Akentijevich is an incredibly knowledgeable, deeply caring and kind doctor. As an oncologist he has to give patients difficult news at times. My experience is that he has always been respectful, kind and honest. He answers all my questions carefully and I trust him completely.

I was very disappointed. He did not give me the chance to ask my questions, he cut me off, made me feel inferior and basically "dismissed" me. I felt very mistreated, upset and frustrated. My respect for Drs in the U.S has diminished drastically after this visit.

He is very nice, he takes his time with you, let's you know everything about your health and his plans to how he is going to help you. There are few times where we just walked in and he was kind enough to see us. I am so glad he is taking care of my dad.
