Patient Comments (1)
Chicago, IL |
Dr. Al-Aswad is an extremely approachable and pleasant person. When I met him before my wrist operation I felt I was in good and caring hands. After two other visits he was attentive and it seemed as if he remembered me without checking his notes. However, I might be mistaken, because I'm sure he spends a lot of time with other patients.
