Over the last decade our family has dealt with diabetes and the loss of use of kidneys, a transplant, countless battles with infections and even an amputation. Our greatest resource for finding the right solutions and care has been Dr Islam. His knowledge and understanding of the troubles we have faced has made the difference in recovery and a better quality of life.
