Dr. Akopian saved my mom’s life after her cancer had been misdiagnosed by several other doctors as something minor and relatively insignificant. He was so compassionate and thorough. He always took our calls and took the extra time for us. We are so grateful for him and his caring staff.

John Y

Dr. Akopian saved my life. I had a ruptured appendix that had burst several days before I got to the ER and was one of the worst cases Dr. Akopian had seen in many years. I was in the hospital for a week and went home with drain tubes. Dr. Akopian was extremely skillful, and also patient, thoughtful and assuringly calm. He is the very best.

Jason C.

Dr Akopian took his time examining me, explained his opinion clearly, and left me reassured about my need for surgery and general well being.
Excellent experience.
