Awful experience. Came into consult w riding boots and jodhpurs in a huge hurry to examine and then draw on a pad where she would cut and cut... She did not listen to history or my concerns. Just wanted me to schedule surgery right away...You can tell she likes to perform surgery as she wanted to do way more than I needed or wanted! Did not go back and grabbed my records on the way out! Her bedside manner is hugely lacking.

I would highly recommend Dr. Akbari for breast cancer surgery. I was diagnosed with invasive ductal carcinoma. During my initial visit, she was thorough in explaining my diagnosis. She wrote down my treatment plan, including options, and gave the plan to me. I had a double mastectomy, which was successful. My recovery was quick and as planned. The Nurse Navigator, Claudia, was excellent. She coordinated everything for me, including appointments with my reconstruction surgeon and the surgery.
