What people have to say about this practice

"This was my first visit to discuss possible surgury. I filled in my forms, and was shown to a room in a few minutes of completing the forms, and his intern began to discuss my situation with me very soon after. Dr. Hilmy then came into the exam room, and I felt that he took time to discuss my situation and my options. I left with a plan to address my situation, and I felt that I had been put into control of the situation. The office staff and Dr. Hilmy were very professional and treated me as a valued client." - Anonymous
