If I could give him negative stars and take his license I would. He is a MURDERER, he put a patient on Do Not Resuscitate orders without the consent of patient and relatives. He is letting a patient decline in health by refusing to give her any treatment.

If I could give 0 stars, I would. The office staff lies and blames Insurance for holding up progress. But we find out 4 days after my mom’s visit with Dr. Allaf and a day after her oxygen was supposed to be delivered STAT that her prescriptions, oxygen, and chest X-ray were never ordered by his staff. After politely calling the office 3 times and still being told it’s insurance, we found out from the vendors (pharmacy, oxygen company, and xray facility) that they were never ordered. When I called the office to question, I was treated extremely rude by Natalie and was told the office manager was not there. Then I spoke to a Neisha in the office who posed as the office manager, but is only a co-worker covering for Natalie. After all of this, the orders all went through within an hour after 5 days of waiting. Because Dr. Allaf has not returned my call to discuss, I sent him an email regarding his office staff. Still no phone call or reply from him. Don’t know how he stays in business!

The first time I saw Dr. Allaf at Memorial Regional, he did NOT even introduce himself. Just: "How are you?" I told him the ER told me I had pneumonia in both lungs. His response: "May be it's just bronchitis". Then I asked him: "Did you see my last night CT scan?". Response: "NO". The hospital did a phlegm culture. They knew which bacteria was involved, but that so called "lung specialist" was not even able to prescribe the right antibiotic for that bacteria. I refused to see him again.

Terrible! If you're at Memorial Hospital, fight if he's assigned to you: demand another dr! In my case, he missed an urgent, critical issue despite the labs and CT scan findings identifying my condition. During his rounds, he stopped by my room for a total of 2 minutes in 5 days, paying more attention to his damned phone than attention to me the patient. I wish I could give him negative stars! I'm lucky & glad I found a good pulmonary dr on this site.

VERY BAD doctor. A danger to patients' health. He saw my mother for barely 3 minutes,he was unfocused, inattentive, perturbed. He gave mother a wrong diagnosis and prescribed the wrong medicines without even ordering a single Lung test! Luckily I took mother to another Pulmonary doctor and he helped her. That Dr. Allaf would have killed her!! His clinic is not even clean and he has an open bathroom with two side doors totally open in the middle of the parlor where patients walk! UNHYGIENIC!
