Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with us.

Dr. El Hajj was wonderful with my son when no one knew what was wrong with him or how serious his condition was. He helped to save my son's life. My son was in the hospital for 3 months and had two surgeries. Dr. El Hajj was there almost every day. His level of care is the best I have seen. I am forever grateful.
