My wife was diagnosed with a rare blood cancer while visiting in Florida early this year. From our initial introduction to Dr. Agha in February and continuing through testing, diagnosis and treatments for AML he and his staff have been phenomenal at every level. Dr. Agha is straight forward and positive about the disease and it's complications and obvious risks while at the same time he has a positive "calming" demeanor which set our minds in the right mode to fight this monster.

Dr. Agha is simply the best physician I have ever dealt with. He is brilliant, compassionate, includes my wife in all our discussions, and is beyond thorough. During my CHL follow up visit approximately a year later, I explained that I had some inflammation in a lymph node, he immediately ordered a PET scan and found throat cancer. Although it is not his specialty, he not only recommended who I should see but has since followed up with me to monitor my progress. Dr. Agha is THE BEST!!!

Dr. Agha is an incredible doctor. Besides being highly skilled, he is one of the most optimistic, caring and compassionate doctors I have ever run across. I am someone who fully believes that attitude is a huge part of getting through these complicated diagnoses, this is a really big deal. He will leave no stone unturned in trying to solve the most complicated blood cancer issues. Dr. Agha is a treasure to Pittsburgh and the surrounding area.
