I thought Dr. Nakfoor was very intelligent. He explained my radiation treatment fairly well, although I had to ask him what type of radiation I would be getting and why. I left a bit confused about the exercise program and would have liked some more information about it, from Dr Nakfoor.

Dr. Nakfoor is an amazing doctor! I’ve been a patient of his for almost one year and I truly believe he saved my life. During my first appointment he was on the phone scheduling referrals for an IV port, chemo doctor, Imaging, etc. I didn’t have to worry about researching doctors, making phone calls or scheduling appointments, he basically did it all for me. Dr. Nakfoor is a true professional and I highly recommend him.

I was very much impressed with both Dr Nakfoor and his staff. Everyone in the office was able to educate and inform my husband and I of the treatment I am about to receive. All this was done in a very relaxed and congenial manner. I felt relaxed and more informed and involved in my medical care. Inspire Oncology has settled my mind and spirit in another chapter of my life. God bless them all!

Dr Nakfoor is the best! Look not further. Very attentive, responsive and caring. He well prepared me for a difficult treatment that I required. I strictly followed his advice of exercise and diet while I was sick and it wasn't always easy. I believe that my ability to recover better than I could have ever imagined is attributed to being under his care. I completely trusted him and today I am cancer free and healthy. I credit Dr Nakfoor and his wonderful staff for my stellar recovery. He is an exceptional doctor!

Dr. Nakfoor and staff are first class! My first appointment was preceded with his staff reviewing the multi-page questionnaire I had already filled out. (Yes, they actually read it) All the details that could be addressed were taken care before meeting the doctor. He’s very personable and took all the time needed to educate me on my medical issue and treatment. I wasn’t rushed. He’s an outlier. I highly recommend him.
