August 16, 2016

I feel that everyone who took care of me should get a week vacation for a job they did.

August 16, 2016

I didn't feel as though the doctor talked about what to expect. was in a hurry to get out of the office.

August 12, 2016

This particular provider and his staff were very attentive to my needs and concerns. I have nothing but praise for their concern about my specific medical condition.

July 29, 2016

the doctor and his staff were wonderful. I did not have an appointment and they got me in

July 27, 2016

Dr Abla is out on medical leave and Dr El-Kadi's office got me in within 24 hours of calling for an appt. I was very pleased with the outcome of the appointment as I had injured my back.

July 27, 2016

very good experience

July 20, 2016

Most of the medical specific directions/questions were handled by the PAs as opposed to the doctor himself, but this was perfectly fine with me. I would rather he save his time for the more critical aspects, and they were always very knowledgeable and helpful.

July 20, 2016

July 20, 2016

All my experiences have been good.
