He is a very caring doctor and treats you like a friend. Sits down with you and explains everything in common understanding terms.

Review for Dr. Luqman

He is the very rude. Doesn't care about his patients. He sees my mother once a month at dialysis, Sunnybrook LOCATION. She now has swollen legs and a skin infection. He didn't even have time to prescript an antibiotic for her the PA had to do it. He's just in it for the money.
