If it weren't for Dr. Abbas I would not be alive today. I'm not exagerating. I was so ill and there so many different things wrong with me. Additionally, due to my illnesses I was unable to eat for a year. I was put on IV nutrition just so I could build up my strngth for surgery. My surgery lasted 12 hours. Prior to surgery I had been hospitalized for almost that entire year. I had lost over 100 pounds and I was dying of malnutrition. I was released in a week. 6 1/2 years later and I'm thriving.
