Seattle/Bellevue Area recommendation
« on: January 17, 2018, 06:30:26 pm »
Hello All,

My husband is recently diagnosed with AN and we are searching for a surgeon.

We already saw Dr. Schwartz and Dr. Farrokhi team, and they immediately suggested the surgery to remove the tumor. They seem confident, but we feel we need to seek other opinions to confirm.


Any suggestion will be great. Thank you!

- First consultation with Dr. Schwartz and Dr. Farrokhi Team at Virginia Madison - Suggest Immediate surgery
- Seeking second opinions

I will vouch for Farrokhi, if you decide to have him excise your tumor. He took care of me 8 years ago and I'm probably his biggest fan!  ;-) Good luck and seek as many opinions until you feel confident with your choice!

Thank you so much! We are in contact with Dr. Backous and Dr. Ferreira, so hopefully we get good consultation soon.

Hey there,

I know it’s been a while, but I was just checking in to see who you ended up going with? Hope you’re doing well.
