I can't even say enough good things about Dr. Wissam Abouzgheib. Number 1, is that he saved my husband's life in April of this year. My husband went into sepsis shock, after chemotherapy treatments and pneumonia. The pneumonia was so bad my husband was put on a ventilator. Dr. Wissam was able to stabilize my husband from the sepsis. My husband's lungs were damaged from the pneumonia, and with all the procedures Dr. Wissam was able to do, my husband was able to get off the vent. Thank you!

I had Cardio Pulm Exer test to determine why I was quickly out of breath. The dr that gave the test said Dr. Wissam would have results in a few days. 2 weeks later I had not heard so I called, called again, and called a 3rd day. No responses from him. The following wk I called again and did not hear from him. I called my primary to get the results, but office staff put me thru to his office. I think a non dr. gave me some info and said the dr. said if I want more info 2 make an appt. I'm angry!
