 |  Love Dr. Salloum  |  show details
by Wanda Muessel on Feb 28th, 2014

Dr. Salloum always took his time and explained everything to me about what my treatment was going to be. I also go to MD Anderson but found that Dr. Salloum was often right more than they were and he kept better track of my treatment and progress.

They basically seem to want to take easy cases and by-the-book approaches. So much is new in cancer care now, but no spark there. I notice this doctor graduated in 1985, and maybe that explains the low-energy lack of positive certainty. After the consultation, I was confused. Not only because the poor English (heavily accented) was difficult to follow, but I also found others who had the same experience, that they don't seem enthusiastic and up to all the modern latest care. Will not be seeing this doctor.

I had some trouble understanding him because of the heavy accent. He did not seem very enthusiastic about his work. He was not interactively engaged or up to date with the latest in the field, more like asking rote questions and plug n' play chemo for cookie cutter cases.

I believe this doctor has a "cookbook" approach to treatment. He follows a standard recipe and when when one recipe does not work he goes to another. He fails to be creative when all the recipes fail and essentially just goes through the same treatment motions even though they are unproductive. I believe he should be more aggressive in his treatment methods and try new cutting edge treatments when the old standards are not working, or call in someone who is.
