Just the best!

I originally went to Dr. Athanasian for what I thought was a cyst on my finger. When he said I needed surgery for a tumor, I almost passed out! I went for a second opinion and made the mistake of using the second doctor for the surgery. Years later, the tumors returned with a vengeance. When I returned to the surgeon I was told that it was nothing. When these bumps continued to grow, I decided to see Dr. Athanasian, and ended up having surgery with him for my giant cell tumors of the tendon sheath. What a difference! His bedside manner cannot be surpassed, and his staff was wonderful. He exudes a quiet confidence that makes you feel like are in the best "hands" possible. If you need a hand surgeon, he's the one to go to! Just the best!
