Dr. Atallah spent a lot of time explaining in great detail my condition. He comforted me, assured me that he will take good care of me and he has with minimally invasive treatment. I have never had a doctor treat me with such dignity and warmth. Just look at his credentials, education, experiences. This surgeon is motivated, selfless, he puts in an enormous amount of time into cancer researching, innovative technology and minimally invasive surgery.

I can not say enough great things about Dr. Atallah. My husband was diagnosed with colon cancer in Feb 2018. The physicians near us did not make us feel very good about my husband's surgery that he needed to have, he is on the larger size. We went and saw Dr. Atallah and he had no problem. Dr. Atallah and his staff made us feel so much better about things. Dr. Atallah was able to do the surgery on my husband on a Monday and he was going home that Friday and has had no problems. Highly recommend!

I cannot say enough about how pleased I was with my interactions Dr Atallah and his staff. I felt I was in great hands from my first visit, during and after surgery. Whenever I had questions or concerns after surgery they promptly helped me through it with understanding and compassion. Without reservation, I would highly recommend Dr Atallah to anyone needing a colorectal surgeon.
