Dr. Hamad Is Wonderful !!

I was recently referred to Dr. Hamad by my primary care physician. On my first visit to Dr. Hamad, he was very caring, very compassionate, and I immediately felt at ease. What really impressed me about him is that he walks every one of his patients up to the reception desk, which may not sound like anything special, but when you are battling a disease like cancer, that little extra show of care means a lot. If you are looking for an excellent oncologist, I would highly recommend Dr. Amar Hamad.

TERRIBLE!!!

We have been going here for YEARS, worst mistake ever. At some point the doctor just stopped seeing me. I ended up in the hospital with a major infection(which was apparent when I was going for check ups!) and he barely even came into my room, so my family tells me.. as I was unconscious clinging to life. No call to my family, no call after I was released (2 month stay!). This is after I had paid my bills, and been a patient for years. Can you imagine what he would do to someone he just met?! Oh and the best part is- he KNEW about my condition and the risks of infection but did nothing to stop it or warn me!
