I cannot say enough positive things about this doctor. Today marks the third time in eight years he has literally saved my life and quality of life. He is smart, knowledgeable, patient and dedicated to improving the life of his patients. Although an accomplished surgeon, he will try anything possible to avoid surgery at all costs. I am forever beyond grateful.

Dr Agopian is a very skilled and knowledgeable surgeon. He holds his own abilities to very high standards. He engages with patients and family members and encourages the asking of questions. His bedside manner doesn't come across as warm and caring and he sometimes communicates in a curt way that can be intimidating. The bottom line is that he is good at what he does, and what he does is save lives.
