    Dr. Faroun has been a godsend to me. He is an excellent physician and a rock for me throughout my treatment. His manner and encouragement helped me to get to 5 years cancer free from a stage 4 colon cancer diagnosis. I am a physician myself and I credit him and my oncology surgeon with saving my life. They are truly brilliant and compassionate physicians.
    He was patient, kind, and explained everything to me. Was wiling to answer questions, to make sure I fully understood what was going on. Amazing bedside manor. I'm grateful to have him as my doctor.
