I am beyond disgusted of what I have heard from this Dr. My sister has been battling cancer since January of 2016 and has fallen through the cracks multiple times. The last straw was him saying to her,he's surprised she's still fighting most people would of given up by now. What kind of Dr. Says that to his patient??! Then proceeded to say if this stem cell dosent work she's pretty much out of options...I could go on and on but this just gets me so emotional and fired up.

Dr. Farooq I stills confidence in his patients by prescribing the best possible regimen for each individual patient and by the interest he shows in each patient. He addresses every concern with a thoughtful and reassuring answer.
