Top-notch Oncologist
Dr. A is not only an incredibly knowledgeable physician, he is personable and able to focus discussion around your health and patient experience. I am now cancer-free, but have experienced long-lasting side-effects from treatment. Dr. A talks with me about remediations for this as well as truly hearing me in the discussion.

Grade A for Dr. "A"
I first saw Dr. "A" back in 2019. He was INCREDIBLE. You shouldn't have to be grateful that you have a doctor who you feel like takes the time to listen to you but that's how I felt with Dr. "A" -- after having seen several doctors for my particular health complication. I returned to see Dr. "A" a few weeks ago and I met the exact same person. A doctor who listens, is compassionate, and patiently explains health facts that give you information to make an informed decision. I highly recommend Dr. Aksentijevich.

Insensitive
You simply do not tell a patient without a family: "You got cancer because you don't have any children." I just kept looking at him... And then he added: "Of course, there are other factors that could have contributed..." I also sent additional questions to his assistant and never received a reply. Won't be coming back.

Top Notch, Knowledgeable & Compassionate!!
Dr. A was such a breath of fresh air! He took the time to listen, understand my concerns, and treated me with kindness as he took the time to explain everything to me. He has an excellent bedside manner. I felt at ease the moment I started talking with him. Although I was referred to him for an issue that isn't nearly as complex and serious as he normally sees, he didn't minimize my issue or make me feel like I shouldn't be there. If he took such good care of me as a patient with a minimal issue, I can only imagine how valuable he would be for his patients facing more serious health issues. I trust Dr. A completely. Thank you, Dr. A for being a great doctor!

AN OUTSTANDING DOCTOR
Dr. Aksentijevich is a caring and attentive physician who has made me feel comfortable and at ease since my first visit with him. He is very knowledgeable and so thorough. He took time to explain things and answer all our questions. It was very easy to talk to Dr. Aksentijevich. He knew the best course of treatment for my situation and offered options if they were available. I would highly recommend Dr. Aksentijevich to anyone. We appreciate all his help and support!

Blood work Results - Iron Overload & Low Platelet
Very disappointed with 2nd office visit. I was scheduled with Dr Aksentijevich again because I had not seen Dr Ninan in over 2 years. I waited patiently longer than I should have for the doctor. Dr Aksentijevich did not go over specific lab results or give any recommendations for treatment. He said he was not familiar with my past diagnosis. He said I was Dr Ninan's patient, so please schedule with Dr Ninan only. He wanted to make sure I was not scheduled with him again so he wanted to walk with me to the front desk. I had another appointment so I had to leave quickly. Please help me to understand what happened. As a Hematology patient I was not taken seriously.

Dr Ivan Aksentijevich
Most people who have as an aggressive case of cancer as I did live only a year or two longer after diagnosis. It was my good fortune that Dr Ivan Aksentijevich managed the treatment of my case because today I am completely free of cancer. He shepherded me through my ordeal with the greatest care, with cutting edge medical knowledge, and with incomparable concern for my well being and survival. In my opinion, Dr Aksentijevich is among the very best oncologists anywhere

Dr “A,” as we call him, is nothing short of a saint. His compassion as a man is only matched by his skill as an oncologist. He has time for every question and he truly cares about his patients and their families. There is no finer oncologist than Dr. A.

Recommending Dr Aksentijevich
My visits with Dr Aksentijevich are what you want to have with a doctor who is treating you for cancer. He is kind but also clear about the treatments that are possible and your chances of over coming he disease. I am so glad he has been my guide and biggest supporter along with an outstanding staff. A truly amazing group of nurse, phlebotomists and staff. They are always quick to answer questions, renew prescriptions and generally be positive and caring . Dr Aksentijevich is the top of the pyramid!
