Dr. Adil AlKhatti
At the Oncology Institute we pride ourselves on being a patient-centered service. We deal with patients with difficult problems, aggravated by misunderstanding and fear. They include life-threating conditions, diseases that cause life-long suffering and severe treatment side effects. We are committed to cure sometimes, treat often and comfort always. Our reward is the high patient satisfaction ratings. I am proud to be part of the extended oncology family.
