    Dr, Atassi is a kind an compassionate man who cares deeply for his patients. He takes time to explain the procedures in the office and before surgery in the surgery waiting area. Dr Atassi installed my port-a-cath recently and performed my wife's mastectomy in 2009. She is still with me and in good health thanks of first rate care from a great oncologist Dr. B. H. Barai
