I have no complaints. I did have a rather long wait to see the provider. However, he apologized for the delay. I was not upset for having to wait. I always come prepared with a book just in case this happens. I am very satisfied with everything and everyone I have incurred.

The Center for Liver Disease saved my life. I am grateful to Dr's Ahmad and Shaik for their knowledge and skill in treating my condition. The doctors and staff are world class, I have absolute confidence in their abilities and appreciate their sincere and friendly manner, but most of all their excellent educations, skill, knowledge and abilities that led to my quick cure.
