Rated 5 / 5 stars
DR. Almukhtar expressed his thoughts. But most importantly to us my husband and I he listened to our concerns and we could tell was actually concerned about what we were saying. When we left the clinic and we felt a great since of relief. I feel we were treated with respect. And we happy that decision he came to was in our best interest. He's a tremendous asset to the oncology Institute.
I love this doctor, Dr. Talat Almukhta. He explains everything to me in such care! He takes time to explain all the details of my Luekemia. I really feel like my life matters to him!! I feel blessed to have him as my doctor.
