Brain & Neurology
I believe that every person’s situation is unique and enjoy listening to customers tell me their stories, in their own words.

He is interested in the application of computer technology to improve healthcare delivery.

Dr. Altafullah’s aim is always to tailor each customer’s treatment to suit the individual. He feels blessed to be a physician and have the opportunity to help people.
