Good luck. This is a detached overscheduled rushed doctor. You will wait for up to 4 hrs for your appt. takes hours to put in chemo orders. Doesn't have time to answer questions and gives a cursory 4 minute exam. Doesn't explain anything
in Elmont, New York |
Dr. Abou-Alfa is a prominent liver oncologist who is clearly a well recognized leader in his field. He and his staff are caring, professional and always responsive to their patients. I recommend Dr. Abou-Alfa without reservation to anyone with liver cancer.
