I had been admitted to the ER in my home community. After three days of inpatient care, the attending physician indicated that emergency surgery would be needed. I immediately asked her to be in consultation with Dr. Alshkaki. He had performed a previous surgery in 2005. He was familiar with my medical needs and I knew that he should be the one to perform this emergency surgery. Arrangements were made immediately to transfer me to Alexandria INOVA and surgery was performed the very next day. I knew that was safe and secure under his care.
