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.

Dr. Atallah is by far the best physician I have ever experienced anywhere. He is very well in tune with his patients needs, sensitive, up-to-date on all the latest clinical trials and medicines. He is also pleasant and funny, a joy to be around. My family feels that he is a part of our family and we trust him and his knowledge of his craft without question. He is the most skilled blood specialist we have encountered and Froedtert is very fortunate to have him! His commitment to his patients is phenomenal!

My medical condition is serious. The diagnosis was thorough and detailed, and the treatment plan was tailored to my condition. Follow-up has been excellent. People providing the service are very competent, and good listeners. When I have a question they answer clearly. When my blood tests require further explanation or emphasis, they always follow-up. I', extremely thankful to be working with Dr. Atallah and his entire team.
