Dr Idress is an excellent communicator as well as listener. He is very patient and it never feels like he's rushing. I feel that I have his full attention when he's in the room.

Dr Idress of explaining the current situation of my illness and the two options available. He explained the pros and cons of each option. I told us what he's choose, which lined up with what are looking for in a cure. I was seeing Dr. Idress to get a second opinion on treatment options. I had surgery planned with a doctor at NCA, but after talking with Dr. Idress we decided to go with his recommendation. We received new information about pancreatic cancer & treatments that I had never heard before. This was a major factor in choosing Dr. Idress as my surgeon.
