From benign breast problems to breast cancer it’s my passion to keep informed of the latest treatments and technologies that benefit my patients. I love working with an experienced and dedicated team of physicians who work to personalize and tailor each treatment plan to best meet the needs of the patient as an individual – and the family as a whole.    Stephanie Akbari, MD, FACS

It was important for me to join a practice that is dedicated to providing patient-centered team care while also offering the very latest advanced treatments. Virginia Cancer Specialists has an excellent and well-deserved reputation as a world-class cancer center that believes in putting patients first. I look forward to collaborating with this group of compassionate, highly-skilled physicians as we help patients achieve the best possible outcomes.    Elizabeth Feldman, MD, FACS

“I believe in a covenant relationship with each patient and family. This is my calling, not just my job. We encounter the person with breast cancer at a most vulnerable time. Our goal is to truly care for them and guide them through the development of a personalized treatment plan that addresses all of the patient’s concerns and helps them move forward.”   Hernan Vargas, MD, FACS

“The best outcomes involve addressing all three phases of care – before a diagnosis with personalized risk assessment and screening, during a diagnosis with a blend of cutting edge technology and surgical skill, and after a diagnosis with a focus on survivorship and wellness. Two goals when it comes to treating breast cancer: First identify and provide every proven method of treatment available worldwide and second make it personal! Second, one patient at a time – all breast cancers are NOT the same and every patient’s plan should be catered to their needs.”   David Weintritt, MD, FACS
