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.


Ehab Atallah, MD, is a Professor of Medicine and Section Head of hematological malignancies in the Medical College of Wisconsin Division of Hematology and Oncology, specializing in leukemia and myelodysplastic syndromes at Froedtert Hospital. He graduated from Cairo University School of Medicine in 1994, then completed an internal medicine residency in the Cleveland Clinic Health System and a fellowship in hematology/oncology at the Karmanos Cancer Center in Detroit, Michigan, where he also served as Chief Fellow. He then went on to complete a leukemia fellowship at M.D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, Texas. Dr. Atallah is board certified in Internal Medicine, Medical Oncology, and Hematology. He has authored numerous publications, including journal articles, meeting abstracts, and a book chapter. In 2007, he received the American Society of Clinical Oncology Foundation Merit Award. His current research interests are treatment of patients with chronic myelogenous leukemia, chronic lymphocytic leukemia, acute lymphocytic leukemia, acute myelogenous leukemia, myeloproliferative neoplasms and myelodysplastic syndromes.

all together a great team of professional and caring personal from when we arrived to when we left.

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 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.

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 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.

June 14, 2019
Dr. Atallah actually took the time to tell me exactly what CML is (no one) has in the past. He also made me feel safe that he'll be the best fit for me. And I feel that I can really trust him. I have "severe" trust issues with people. But, I feel good with this provider.

His knowledge, caring manner, and ability to communicate to us in a way that we could understand my situation.
March 29, 2019
Dr Atallah and his staff always go the extra mile to explain all the treatments I receive and the medications needed. When I was first diaganosed with Acute Lombastic Lukemia, it was scary and I became very anxious.With Dr Atallah's understanding ways and his compassion, things got much better as I became aware of the good hands I was in with him and his staff. I could not have made a better decision than to begin a clinical trial at Froedtert and The Medical College and after only 5 weeks, I was in full remission.
March 27, 2019

To the best of my knowledge Dr Attalah is the best heme-onc doctor in the Milwaukee region. I feel fortunate to have him as my doctor.
