Our 25 year old daughter moved to Tucson, AZ from NW Indiana. She was referred to Dr. Rafiyath by Dr. Robert McCallum and Dr. Cybil Corning. Our daughter was diagnosed with Stage IV Colon Cancer. From the day that we met Dr. Rafiyath, he proceeded to help us understand our daughter's cancer. He laid out all of the best options for her treatment and continued to discuss her options with all of his team of colleagues. Dr. Rafiyath went out of his way to contact the the doctors who have paved their way in colon cancer to verify his protocol. Dr. Rafiyath's bedside manner is sympathetic, thoughtful, incisive, everything that you would want in this diagnosis. He takes his time to make the patient feel comfortable and that he understands their specific situation. In a time of shock hearing our daughter's diagnosis, Dr. Rafiyath took his time to help his patient and her family feel at peace, trusting his knowledge and wisdom. We highly recommend Dr. Mohammed Rafiyath!!!

Dr. Rafiyath is an excellent Oncologist. He listens to his patient's issues, is proactive when there seems to be a problem and he's caring. I think so highly of him, that even though I moved out of the area, I still drive 60+ miles to keep appointments with him.
