We live in California and travel to see this very caring doctor. My husband has stage 4 metastasized liver cancer, and doctor has helped us make decisions on my husband’s treatment. We can always count on doctor to get back with us on our many questions and concerns. I truly believe that Dr Aqel cares about his patients. He is a very caring and wonderful doctor.
