January 02, 2018

I was scheduled for an x-ray that day and an MRI as soon as I could schedule it. I felt that it was too soon for another shot it in my hip, so this plan is what we agreed on. I am scheduled to meet with him next week for follow up from the tests, and what the next step is.

all staff involved was courteous and attentive to my needs, even offering to carry my belongings from place to place since crutches made it difficult to get around independently

This was my first visit w/ Dr. Sakr and he was very easy to talk to and understood my concerns. He was professional, answered all questions, and I felt "cared for" after leaving his office.
