Review for Dr. Gleason

Dr. Salloum’s social skills are extremely limited. Does he know his stuff? I’m sure he does, but explaining it is forced, factual, and limited in scope. It’s a disconcerting trait in a career that statistically deals with death and dying more more often than the living and thriving.

Sue Jun 11 2020

Review for Dr. Salloum

upfront and professional, have been seeing him for several years. He is open to discussion and straight forward with his answers which I appreciate. would give him a strong recommendation to anyone.
