It's a frightening task to find out you have brain or any type of cancer and then find a doctor who understands the cancer, is experienced, is part of a team that is responsive and will take the time to help you understand what needs to be done. The word "cancer" hits you so hard it takes your breath away. Review your options but include Dr. Alekshun. He's no nonsense, talks to you not over you and takes the time to understand your concerns and then guides you through solutions. In my cancer he is my pilot.

Dr A has been my oncologist since July 2010. I come up from Florida every 6 months to see him because I trust him with my care and my life! I have recommended Dr. Alekshun and have sung his praises over the years. He has a great bedside manner and is direct and to the point. I never feel rushed during my appointments and he is very thorough.

When I was found to have an abnormality in my bloodwork, I was referred to Dr. Alekshun He ordered the appropriate tests, scan, and finally a bone marrow biopsy to diagnose my condition. He explained the condition to me and assured me he would stay on top of everything as he has done. He is the most kind, patient, compassionate and persistant doctor I have had in a long time. He is extremely knowledgable
