It's rare to find an oncologist who, almost every day, visits the room where his patients are getting chemo. When members of our family have accompanied my mom to her infusions, Dr. Zahir has been available to answer our questions in person. He shows my mom her blood counts when they come back (weekly), discussing the results and any updates in her treatment plan. Each week he listens to her lungs and heart, while asking about our family and how Mom is feeling in general. We can count on Dr. Zah

Dr. Aslam Zahir is an exceptional doctor. I have been with him for almost 8 years and there is no one I would rather help me fight my cancer battle. He is compassionate, exceptionally knowledgeable, listens to his patients. Most kind person I know. Anyone that makes contradictory comments about this man "like he sucked" I wish you would contact me or keep your derogatory remarks to yourself.

I have never had a doctor so concerned with my well-being, he goes above and beyond and calls me personally to let me know my results. I could never ask for anyone greater than him to care for me or my family.

I've been under Dr.Zahir's care for under a year now. He is absolutely wonderful. Not only has he been consistent in his care towards my health, but also does so with compassion. He is great at what he does and I definetly recommend him to anyone who is need of an oncologist/hematologist.
