He got angry and said he was going to cancel the order for my cancer treatment. I don't know if he did or not (no treatment yet) but even if it was 'just' a threat it was cruel to make fear for my life.

We went to Dr. Abdulla for a second opinion, were referred from City of Hope as we wanted to stay local. We found him to be very caring, personable and knowledgeable. He made us feel at ease and we were impressed by his expertise, compassion.
