    Five years ago my daughter was diagnosed with a huge bone infection, osteomyelitis. It could have been life threatening, however, with the skilled hands and heart of Dr. Attar, my daughter is living her best life today. Dr. Attar, we think of you often, on blended knee, for your expertise and compassion. You are a wonderful human being and we feel so blessed to have had you in our lives. So very grateful for you ??.
