I walked into Dr. Alshekhlee's office knowing I was going to die soon. He exeuded confidence when I first saw him. He made me positive rhat he was the best and I knew I was in good hands. He did a procedure in the hospital shortly after I met him and I knew I would come out the other end in perfect condition. He was right - I was a whole person again and had no further problems. He's my go to Nuurologist and I really don't like doctors.
