Dr Assad saved my husbands life. He decided to operate on his brain when the oncologists had told us that he had three weeks to live. Once he went in , and as he suspected, the masses on his brain were infection masses. If he hadn't decided to go open surgery, my husband would have died of an infection while being tortured for cancer. When I touched Dr, Assad"s hands, I knew he was going to save my husband. He has a special aura that gives you trust and peace. I highly recommend him. ;)
