Yes I would recommend Dr. Latif to my friends and family as well. Having been his patient for almost five years I feel that I qualify for commenting on His kindness, thoroughness, and excellent knowledge of my disease and treatment.

I've never left a review. Recently diagnosed with cancer and suffering with doctor phobia, I can't say enough about my experience. Truly compassionate doctor and staff that took "time" with me.

This doctor is a horrible doctor. Tries to cover up mistakes by lying through his teeth. Screwed up the methotrexate dosage and now trying to pass patient off. Says he makes calls when he doesn't. He got ahold of patient relations in which they called me. Patient relations stated Dr Latiff said his wife and daughter were too aggressive. Aggressive? Asking questions is apparently to aggressive. What a joke of a doctor.

He is a very kind man and very reassuring. My cancer has gone into remission as a result of his timely treatment. He and the Radiation team at Halifax were excellent. I cannot say enough positive things about them

My dad was diagnosed with Stage IV Colon Cancer back in February. Dr. Latif has been an amazing physician, giving my parents hope and being available for all of our questions, concerns, and complaints. His staff is remarkable and the hospital itself has helped my dad through this extremely arduous process both medically, mentally, and financially through Halifax's patient assistance programs. I can not recommend him enough.

I was diagnosed with stage 3B lung cancer and sent to Dr Latif. At my first appointment he spent an hour explaining what the disease was, what my treatment options were and answered all my questions. When he was interrupted with an emergency call he apologized profusely for it intruding on my appointment. Through out my treatment he has always acted like I was the only patient he had which is very comforting when you are faced with a terminal illness. I highly recommend Dr Latif!

Quite literally Doctor Latif saved my husbands life. He and a gifted radiologist devised a program to stop a bleeding mass which enabled him to have surgery later. While in another hospital the blood count decreasing due to the bleed, measures taken to build his blood but nothing done to stop the bleed (they said it wasn't possible) discharged him for hospice at home. We left and went to ER where Dr. Latif works...he began building the blood up/ low level radiation mentioned above. So grateful!
