Have you been to Hepatobiliary at Mount Sinai St. Luke’s?
Tell us your story.
My dad had metastatic colon cancer to the liver when I was three years old (circa 1986). My mom was nursing my newborn brother. The story goes that the odds were devastating and my mom was told to hope for the longest surgery possible. Well, that surgery came to be, and despite a deeply painful recovery, my dad lives today as “the miracle man” at what will soon be 86 years old. I want to thank Dr. Attiyah for taking the chance on my dad and proving what the possibilities could be. We talk about you all the time, and I would love to one day shake your hand.
Great manner and very thorough. Talked me through my options and made me feel really comfortable. Spent more time with me than I expected. And offered opinions on topics which weren't his specialty but I was worried about. Lastly and most importantly, even though he's a well respected surgeon he's not jumping to cut me which I appreciate.
I consider Dr. Attiyeh to be the finest surgeon, having had a complicated procedure which turned out fine. His calm demeanor, astute clinical assessment skills, caring and kindness, are second to none. I highly recommend Dr. Attiyeh.
I underwent a HIPEC surgery for a stage IV colon cancer, performed by Dr. Fadi F Attiyeh at St Luke's Roosevelt Hospital, in March 2013.
