Dr. Faruqui was so compassionate and very caring. Her expertise in oncology was phenomenal. She took her time and talk to me and my family. She explained everything to us. Her staff was some of the sweetest people also. Always courteous and nice. My treatments there went so well. She has a very comfortable infusion room. One of the best decisions I ever made was choosing her as my doctor. I always thank my aunt for telling me about Dr. Faruqui.
