“I love the bond I develop with patients & their loved ones during most challenging time of their lives. It becomes the most humbling experience for me to join them on this journey as their care giver. I start every day of my professional life as a battle to fight and conquer cancer to help my patients defeat this enemy. I always keep myself up to date on latest data as I owe it to my patients in this ever evolving field of oncology. I strongly believe in the philosophy of shared decision making. Together with my patients and their families, we make a care plan based on clinical evidence that balances risks and expected outcomes with patient’s values preferences in mind."

  • "I was recently diagnosed with a malignant tumor in my right lung and referred to Dr. Farooq. During our first meeting he went over, in detail, the results of my CT and PET scans and my Bronchoscopy. He then outlined a plan of treatment tailored to my particular form of cancer. He took the time to explain my treatment in detail and provided me with informative literature concerning the the process of treatment and the medicines to be utilized. He answered any questions I had and made my family and I feel at ease with his chosen path for my recovery. The office is staffed with positive and extremely helpful people also. I’ve only just started my journey to recovery but I have full confidence in this team who have “my back.”"
