Dr. Khakpour is a surgical oncologist in the Department of Breast Oncology at Moffitt Cancer Center. In addition to treating patients, she directs the Breast Fellowship Program, helping train the next generation of physicians pursuing advanced training in oncology. She also serves as an instructor and mentor for medical students and resident physicians. As treatment for breast cancer becomes more complex and differentiated by tumor type, Dr. Khakpour believes it is essential for physicians to be well trained in all aspects of this multifaceted disease. Dr. Khakpour enjoys helping women understand the many treatment options that are available to them and making sure they are aware of the value of obtaining a second opinion. At Moffitt, each patient’s care plan is reviewed by a highly expert team of physicians with extensive, focused training in their area of specialty, giving them additional insights and knowledge to help make the best decision for that individual. Dr. Khakpour’s research interests include investigating disease recurrence after lumpectomy with the goal of identifying the most appropriate patients for breast conservation surgery. She is a member of the Breast Cancer Screening Committee for the National Comprehensive Care Network and the Scientific Review Panel for the National Institutes of Health. Dr. Khakpour speaks Spanish, French and Farsi.

The Provider Rating is an average of all responses to specific care provider-related questions from our nationally-recognized Press Ganey Patient Satisfaction Survey. These surveys assess the experience of our patients when visiting us for an Outpatient Clinic, Urgent Care or Virtual Health (Telemedicine) visit. Responses are measured on a scale of 1 to 5 with 5 being the best score.
Patients that are treated in outpatient or hospital environments may receive different surveys, and the volume of responses will vary by question.
Comments are gathered from specific care provider-related questions from our Patient Satisfaction Survey . The comments are submitted by patients and reflect their views and opinions. Patients are de-identified for confidentiality and patient privacy.
We post both positive and negative comments from the surveys. We do not post comments that are libelous, slanderous, profane, irrelevant or otherwise inappropriate or may risk the privacy of our patients. A “[…]” in the comments below indicates de-identified patient information or comments that are unrelated to the patient’s experience with the visit to the provider, such as comments related to another provider, about the survey itself, or otherwise completely off-topic.
Not all providers will have a star rating or comments. In order to ensure accuracy of our ratings, we only display ratings for providers who have a minimum of 30 completed from the previous 12 months.Learn more about our patient comments
