Doctor Abubakr was amazing. He didn't rush my visit, took the time to talk to me about my family health history, my health history and my lifestyle. He explained about my cancer and how it grows and how we are going to battle the cancer. I am glad I will get to work with him and the staff there at CSNF.

I have been seeing Dr. Abubakr for about four years and have received excellent treatment. I could not have more confidence in this gentleman. He Has a wonderful “bedside” manner, is extremely patient and answers any and all questions one may have. I honestly do not feel I would be writing this if not for his prompt, accurate diagnosis and successful treatment plan for me.

Dr. Abubakr has made my journey through chemotherapy an informed one. He is a straightforward communicator with an empathetic heart. Dr. A keeps an open channel of communication with my surgeon and radiologist that makes it easier all around for my treatment plan. My husband, who has been lockstep with me on this journey, and I have found the entire CSNF team at Booth to be professional, efficient, and friendly. They make it comfortable to spend treatment time at their facility.

Kindest doctor’s office ever. They always treat you with respect, always return phone calls promptly, and they are on time with appointments, The sign at the reception desk tells you to let the receptionist know if you have not been called back in fifteen minutes. In sixteen years, I don’t think I have ever waited even fifteen minutes.

I met Dr. Abubakr last year after my surgery due to a cancer diagnosis. I was impressed by his kindness and caring nature. He listens to me and explains the details. Every visit since has been equally as pleasant and informative since. The entire team at CSNF is a caring family.
