My interest is in the treatment of patients with leukemia and other hematological malignancies. My main goal is individualized patient care because each patient has different issues, opinions and priorities. I believe this can best be achieved by good communication and actively involving patients in their care.

Jan. 14, 2020
Dr Atallah is the best physician I have ever had. I've been seeing him now for almost 6 years for my leukemia and it far exceeds the care and consulting I've received from other doctors including my initial oncologist. his office is great and I love the hospital / clinic as a whole. He gives his professional opinions to me straight and humors my bigger picture questions about what my care will look like down the road.
Jan. 9, 2020
This doctor and his staff seem to be especially good at what they do, and understanding that things going on with you and your body that generally fall under someone's else's care may be affected by issues addressed under their care. And then they dig a little deeper for information, and address the issue.

Dr Atallah and his team are very way.
Dec. 26, 2019
Love this Dr & team!

waited 20' without notification, no review of all the forms completed, no repeat blood pressure..elevated.
Dec. 20, 2019
Dr. Atallah is an excellent doctor with vast knowledge and precise communication skills without being aloof. He is patient-focused, kind and understanding. His sense of humor and "human" qualities are a diversion to the seriousness of my illness.
Nov. 28, 2019
The doctor and ai share an adventurous spirit. It has been great fun for me to hear about his mountain ascent. He is a good man.

Dr. Atallah is the best! He is a great listener and truly cares about the patient. He explains things carefully and clearly. His knowledge is very evident but he never talks down to the patient. I feel blessed to have him caring for me.

Dr Attallah is the very best
Nov. 13, 2019
Dr Atallah is the best possible Dr for my condition. I can't say enough about Him and his staff!! Anyone I come in contact with I refer and tell them the great care I receive. And refer them to Cancer Center and Specialty Care Center. Again I cannot Express the personal care from Dr Atallah he is never to busy when it comes to to your health and emotions that go with it. I would never put all my trust in any other Dr, Dr Atallah is the exception to that rule
Nov. 12, 2019

Nov. 12, 2019
I was very pleased with this appointment/provider. I appreciate his patience and willingness to address all my concerns.
Nov. 10, 2019
I felt the entire staff was a cut above anything I've ever experienced. I felt Dr Attalh spent more than enough time with me. I never felt rushed and he explained everything so that I had completely understood where this health journey was taking me.
Nov. 9, 2019
yes, as busy as Dr Atallah is, he took the time to tell me how pleased he is with my progress w/my leukemia. He stated at the beginning of my diagnosis, it was a very stressful time, trying to decide how to determine the best course of action with this disease.He and his team have made these 2 1/2 years a time of discovery to the research and technology and expertise that Froedtert is known for. I truly thank Froedtert for saving my life.
