So grateful...

Dr. Akbari has been my doctor for almost 9 years. When I was diagnosed with advanced breast cancer, she was the one Dr of all the opinions I received, that understood that I didn't want to wake up every day wondering if that was the day I would find a lump in my other breast. She was supportive and understood completely. A few weeks later when I tested positive for the BRCA gene, we knew we were in the right path. She has been kind, supportive and compassionate over the years. When you feel lumps and bumps or pain after surgery, chemo and radiation....your mind always goes to a reoccurrence. She and her team have always been calm and reassuring while looking for medical evidence to explain what is going on. She was the first member of my team, when I started this journey and for that I am incredibly grateful. I have referred countless newly diagnosed women to her....and all are in agreement. She is a bright spot during a dark and scary time.

Very Supportive

I met with Dr Akbari because I read she was the best in the area; she has done my screenings on several occasions and I trust her completely. No patient is alike, we are individuals with individual needs. Dr. Akbari understands this concept!
