Here’s Margaret’s story:
My scan showed a 15 cm renal mass severely compressing my kidney and the large veins below. Probably cancer: I was terrified. I discovered Dr. Mohamad Allaf and sent him an e-mail asking that he consider taking my case. I got a response back 15 minutes later stating that he could see me that week. “Hang in there,” he added, "we will get this behind us soon!!”
Three days later I met with Dr. Allaf to discuss my situation. He carefully explained the operation and patiently, and thoroughly, answered my pageful of questions. I was confident this gifted and caring surgeon would take good care of me. And, indeed, he did. My surgery was completely successful and my recovery, rapid and uneventful. I am now back in my garden, grateful for my good fortune.
