Ratings for Dr. Stephanie Akbari
Dr. Akbari was most knowledgable, presented the facts clearly and articulated the pros and cons of the issue without hesitation. Dr. Akbari allowed my wife and I to absorb the ramifications of dealing with breast cancer as she conveyed the process, while she took copious notes for us. This enabled us to listen and absorb the numerous variables, asa questions, listen to the response - all without the worry of "will we remember what Dr Akbari said". It was all written down and no burden to recall hour long appointment. Outstanding.
The doctor is great! I would highly recommend her. But the service her staff offered is TERRIBLE. They show no sympathy. When they schedule the breast cancer surgery, they will let you wait LONG time, just like schedule a routine teeth cleaning. VERY VERY disappointed about her staff.
Dr. Akbari is one of the best doctors I've every had. She is extremely compassionate, knowledgable, extremely effective and very skilled. She is the Director of the Northern VA Breast Institute and made my breast cancer treatment so much easier on me. I just love her and her great staff! I would never go to another breast surgeon.
