Wonderful Physician

Right before a trip to Mexico, I experienced blood in my urine. Dr. treated it and instructed that I follow up with him upon my return. The bleeding stopped, the vacation was great, and I let a sleeping dog lie, opting NOT to follow up with the Dr. At my next appointment, Dr. insisted that I get additional testing for this condition which, quite frankly, I had forgotten about. I grudging complied, and that testing revealed cancer on my kidney. Dr. Farooq's uncompromising commitment to my health allowed me to discover the cancer while still small and treatable. Now cancer free, I owe a great debt of gratitude to Dr. Farooq. Highly recommended.
