Dancing with Cancer

In April 2019, I was diagnosed with Peritoneal Cancer. This was overwhelming for me, until I had my first meeting with Dr. Steven Vasilev. He was extremely calm, clear, kind, and took as much time as I needed to understand the best plan for me. He gave me hope when I didn’t have any. I knew when I left our meeting that I could trust him, and he would give his very best to fight this cancer. I could not have been more thankful. The following week, I started 9 chemo treatments; one per week. Fortunately, my body responded very well. I was feeling fantastic! I am a dancer, and after 5 chemo treatments, I performed in a showcase for the studio where I train. I am posting this video to offer encouragement to anyone in cancer treatment. It is possible to continue having fun while in treatment! Currently, I am recovering from my robotic surgery. From this experience, I have nothing but positive words and praise. Dr. Vasilev did brilliant work for me and my recovery is going smoothly. Georgette, Dr. Vasilev’s PA, was wonderful as well. Their personal and kind demeanor assured me that I was in great hands. I am incredibly thankful and blessed that I had Dr. Vasilev and his team caring for me. Thank you for saving my life.

Stage IIIc Ovarian Cancer 17 Years Later

DrSteve is an understated, compassionate person. Seventeen years ago after being told a third ovarian cancer surgery (OC) was impossible I was introduced to DrSteve in California by another OC survivor. He thoroughly evaluated my medical history, health, scans and labs and gave me confidence surgery would be successful. DrSteve’s surgery saved my life at that time which allowed me to witness the birth of eight grandchildren through the years.

16 Years After Stage IV Cervical Cancer

I am a 48 year old mother and a 2x Cervical Cancer survivor. I have been in full remission for 14 years after distant recurrence. I am so grateful for my life today and I attribute my amazing and fulfilled life to Dr. Steven Vasilev. He was so instrumental in the success of my radical hysterectomy done laparoscopically and has been by my side every single step of the way for all these years. I am always able to rely on him for anything I need to maintain a cancer free lifestyle. His knowledge, understanding and expertise on all facets of clinical trials, current chemotherapy drugs as well as his resources and knowledge of Eastern vs. Western medicine has been astounding and well respected. To have Dr. Vasilev as part of my continued excellent health is beyond what I could have imagined when I was originally diagnosed. He proves over and over again how very fortunate I am every day to be living life to the fullest, cancer free!

Highly Recommended

Review

I had cancer surgery at Kaiser Sunset in 2009 with Dr. Steve. He is not only a brilliant doctor, but he has a great personality and am so happy I found him! He is an easy going guy with a great sense of humor and I so miss him now that he is no longer there! I am glad he was my surgeon and i think he is brilliant!
