    In the six years I have been his patient, never once have I felt rushed in an appointment. He has a talent of explaining complex chemistry of cancer in a way I can understand.

    HUNTSMAN CANCER CENTER

    In addition to what I wrote at the beginning of this survey, Dr. Akerley is dedicated to finding the best treatment for his patients. That he is dedicated to actively learning about the research and clinical trials that may lead to treatments which may help extinguish cancer and help a person like me live with the disease boosts my confidence and trust in his professional and highly trained medical experience. He is also extremely kind.
