Palm Springs, CA – Jun 03, 2017
Dr Hakim was my focal point from the beginning of my walk with cancer. She answered all the questions I had and gave me more information that I had questions about. She told me exactly what my surgery would entail and led me to City of Hope since they didn't know exactly what organs were involved. She and her staff would answer any questions I had with patience and caring. I am now 5 years cancer free and thankful for her care and concern.
