I should had wrote my comments a long time ago,Being that I had already had a Quadruple bypass heart surgery in another state. I feel I'm alive today thanks to Dr.Fakhri who never gave up on me thou test after test would show nothing wrong. Dr. Fakhri always took the time to listen to my complains & at times was puzzled. I so thankful that he listened & on two to 3 different occasions was able to place stents &repair collapse arteries. I highly recommend Dr. Fakhri. A caring Dr.
