Dr is great..would be nice if you could see him more instead of the nurse practitioner who could be a little kinder . My dad left very upset by her direct, uncaring comments several times. I took off work for a chemo class they called me about attending and when I got there they told me my spot was cancelled. The front desk girl had a real attitude also. As much as I like Dr Assikas, I would never recommend this practice. I have been a nurse for 30 plus years.

Saved my Dad's life. Lymphoma, metastasized. Scary. Was over 6 years ago and Dad is still with us. Shot his age in golf. Dr. Assikis was awesome and is a wonderful guy. I am recommending him to one of my colleagues with a serious cancer issue. God Bless him.

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.
