My philosophy for patient care is being available to my patients when they need me. I do not rely on "shift workers" to provide care. I tend to be conservative.

I am writing this on behalf of my father who died at Wesley. I am an RN, who understood the poor prognosis that my father was facing but Dr Ammar did very well in explaining my father's situation to my mother and other family members. My father saw Dr Ammar over several years, and we got the impression that he is quite a perfectionist at his practice.
