    Dr Morad is an awesome Dr... when my son was diagnosed with Leukemia we were sent to Lafayette to dr. Morad, at first we were wanting to transfer to MD Anderson in houston texas, only because that is where everyone was telling is we needed to go... We talked about it with austin and I let him make the choice. We stayed, and so glad we did, Dr morad explained everything, treated my 16 year old as a person and talks to him about soccer all the time. I tell everyone about Dr morad!!
