Dr. Alekshun saw me through my cancer treatment which was eliminated, and I continue to depend on him to assure that cancer never reemerges. His office staff is very efficient.

Dr. Alekshun has been my oncologist since 2012 . He is very caring and compassionate when answering my questions and explaining test results and treatments. I am very lucky to have him as my doctor and highly recommend him. His staff are all caring, friendly and helpful and always ask if there is anything else you need or they can do for you.

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

During my first consultation Dr Alekshun took the time to explain every step of the process with my wife and I. He answered every question and listened to our concerns. We felt very comfortable with him right from the beginning. His assistant, the office staff and the Infusion Center nurses have all been wonderful.

Dr. Alekshun is just an ok doctor. I have had far better experiences but he is conveniently located to me at this time but I will be looking for a new oncologist in the near future. His staff, especially his assistance is awful. Her lack of basic customer service skills is appalling. I have never once gotten a call back from this office when i was supposed to and it has always taken me 3 to 4 times calling to even get a call back. I find that unacceptable. I would not recommend Dr. Alekshun

I met him about 6 years ago.He became my mother's Dr. From his reviews, I tht he'd be a good fit. My mother had mult. myeloma. She lived with it for 19 years. I believe he did a good job with her care then her treatments stop working.There is no doubt that this Dr. is very good, but I feel he failed my mom before she diedShe had labored breathing and was dying.She had to stop dialysis. He would not sign her hospice papers.She passed in agony. He is not to blame but he could have made it easier.

I found Dr Alekshun to be a strong patient advocate. He is that unique physician who knows how to listen to what is important to his patient, and is open to creating an individualized plan that fits my lifestyle and priorities. His standards are absolutely the highest.
