Technically, he is very good. I like a doctor who is not offended by my questions wherein I am trying to understand what is going on rather than simply go off and do as told.

Waited for 4 hours then Dr. Attar rushed through the appointment leaving 2 times in between. Never got a diagnosis. Set up for more tests, follow up visit was a joke. He did not even have the correct chart.

Went to DR Attar for a 2nd opinion. He was 45 min late and then rushed thru my appointment. He said he would discuss my opinion with a surgeon and never followed up even after I called his office as a reminder. I never received the feedback he promised and I eventually had a heart attack.
