Dr. Sabah A Al-Attar has the following 2 specialties
- Medical Oncology
Think of an oncologist as your main physician for cancer care. After being diagnosed, you’ll meet regularly with an oncologist to explore and manage your treatment options, as well as monitor your condition throughout the process. Medical oncologists are extremely knowledgeable in various types of cancer treatment and can recommend the right method for the type and stage of cancer you’re facing.
They may also refer you to additional specialists throughout your care, but they will always be your home base for questions and support. It’s also worth mentioning that medical oncologists deal mostly with solid tumors while hematologists specialize in cancers that involve blood disorders, such as leukemia.

An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.<br>These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions.

Rude and argumentative
Self-verified patient of Dr. Sabah A Al-Attar - Posted on September 7th, 2017
I am sorry but this man has no manners. He is rude and uncompassonniate. He waits too long to do anything about patients. I expressed my concerns repeatedly about my loved one while they were at a rehab facility. My loved one suffered and declined for 2 weeks and the last 4 days of that 2 weeks she had difficulty breathing. My loved one ended up back in the hospital with major health concerns. I hope I NEVER meet this man again.
Rudest physician I've ever met
Self-verified patient of Dr. Sabah A Al-Attar - Posted on August 28th, 2017
This "dr" has no place working with humans. He speaks to his patients like they are animals beneath him. He speaks over me constantly and doesn't let me explain myself or ask questions. He just rushes me out of the room to have his poor overworked receptionist schedule me for tests that aren't even relevant to my complaints! My first visit I mentioned I had a history of back pain after an accident, just informing him of my medical history and he became very irritated and pointed his finger and said "listen I will tell u, u will not get these narcotic pills from me" making me feel extremely uncomfortable considering I have not taken narcotic pain meds in over ten years and certainly wasn't planning on asking for any! No patient should have to be treated like this, simply for seeking a new physician. I had not seen any dr in almost 10 years! Now I have anxiety about scheduling with a new dr afraid of what I could run into next. Truely shameful.

I've been seeing Dr. Al-Attar since 2005, maybe 2004. He always explains what he is doing and why he is doing it (tests, medications, etc.) He is very thorough in terms of assessing all possible diagnosis and treatment options. In addition, it is easy to get an appointment for an urgent situation. When first meeting Dr. Al-Attar, he may seem a little gruff, but I have found him to be very compassionate. For example, Dr. Al-Attar does not provide gyn examinations. When I had some trouble with my gyn because he would not pursue various medical options due to his religion, Dr. Al-Attar was very supportive of my efforts to find a specialist and my need to pursue a medical regimine that was appropriate for me. I highly recommend him.
