Gainesville, FL |
Dr. Assikis took care of my dad after he was diagnosed with lung cancer. He was patient, caring and honest--even when we knew the cancer was ultimately terminal. He is very knowledgeable and current on the latest treatments. He provided exceptional care to my dad. While he was always honest in his assessments, he encouraged my dad to stay positive as long as he could. If it wasn't for Dr. Assikis, I would not have had that last year with my dad.

This doctor was so courteous, so conscientious and so professional that I cannot say enough about how impressed myself and my family were when we met him. He was excellent and I would HIGHLY recommend him to anyone with a serious cancer condition.
