most memorable physician re: ucla surgical experience

Dr. Agopian was the first physician that I saw after waking up from the Whipple surgery. His bedside manner was such that I never gave up hope despite a very negative prognosis. Now, 20 months after the surgery for pancreatic cancer I am back to work full time and I have few after effects that I can't live with. His was the first face that I saw every morning for over 3 weeks and it always had a smile on it. Even after leaving the hospital to continue with the next phase of treatment (chemo & radiation) he still kept in touch. He is truly gifted and I wish him only continued success.

Patient with his patients

Dr. Agopian with extremely patient with us when my wife had to have surgery. He explained the procedure clearly and I had the utmost confidence in him and his abilities. Beyond being very knowledgeable, he was very pleasant to be around and made us feel very comfortable. I would hope that all doctors would have his bedside manner and calm demeanor. I hope that you would never need to go surgery, but if you do, Dr. Agopian is the one you'd want in the operating room. We couldn't be happier with him.
