Had a wonderful experience with Dr. Attas. He was thorough, took the time to really explain things to me, checked everything that could possibly have needed to be checked, and gave me all the information I could need. I can confidently recommend him!

Saw Dr Attas at Englewood hospital. He was awesome. He took his time to sit with me and explain things and answer all of my questions. I wouldn't hesitate to seek him out if I ever get sick again. Would recommend him to anyone

His method for treating patients is "treat now, diagnose later." He explained to me that iron infusions were safer than pills b/c they "wouldn't give me side effects," and that, b/c I didn't have any known allergies, I'd have nothing to worry about... DO NOT BELIEVE HIM WHEN HE SAYS THIS, B/C I ALMOST DIED!!! Turns out I was allergic to the infusion. (He claims this was a rare occurrence...I don't buy it.) I later found out the cause of my anemia, but it was absolutely NOT thanks to him!
