Honestly the best doctor I have ever seen. Genuinely cares about her patients- you aren’t just a number in a waiting room to hurry up and clear out like most of the doctors I’ve ever experienced. Dr El-Shariff legitimately cares about your overall wellbeing, listens to you, and makes sure you walk out of her office with what you need.

My mom is not the easiest patient, having several complex issues. She's been through many doctors that could not/did not have the patience to help her. Dr. Elsherif is one of the few that did not give up on her and treated her with compassion and sincerity. One issue my mom had been dealing with for years was blown off by other doctors, but thanks to Dr. Elsherif, she was eventually diagnosed with a very rare form of cancer. She is currently being treated and doing better. We are very thankful!

Dr ElSherif is honestly one in a million! I have been to so many doctors over the past 3 years because of an undiagnosed issue. She found the answers I've been searching for and solved another issue I had been struggling with for the past year. I had seen so many specialists that just dismissed my pain/concerns. Dr ElSherif takes the time to really listen to her patients, does thourough medical history research, and her compassion is remarkable. I am proud to call her my doctor. She is AMAZING!!

Dr. ElSherif really listens to what a patient is saying. Does not rush through exams and she takes as much time as I needed. Very thorough in explaining what needs to be done to reach a diagnosis. She truly cares about her patients. We are lucky to find such a caring and genuine doctor.

I saw Doctor Elsherif a couple days ago for my lab results, she took her time to explain the results and make sure I understand and follow the directions. She also wrote down everything for me in case I forget. She has so much patience and is very helpful , she even asked the staff to print out medication coupons for me. The staff is very friendly and respectful, they even take walkins. I referred all of my friends and family to her. It's very hard to find these kinds of doctors these days

Dr. El-Sherif was very friendly and caring, but seemed to be a bit all over the place. She kept getting interrupted by her receptionist. I felt like she didn't really focus on why I was there and just sent me to do a bunch of labs and blood work. She seemed to be in a rush to get out because she was running behind. I just felt like it was really chaotic in the office at the time. I now have a bunch of labs that I have no idea what they're for and got nowhere. Overall I think she was kind.

A good doc most certainly is there when you need them. Dr El-Sherif is just that and more. She excels in troubleshooting and accessing information. She treats everyone with respect and fairness. Her and her staff are efficient and precise. She is a super person and I can go as far to say that she helped save my life. Dr El-Sherif has went above and beyond for me and I will forever be grateful as well as my family. She is an outstanding doctor and super person.

Dr. El-Sherif is a phenomenal physician. Her knowledge is outstanding and her bedside manner is superb however, she is very passionate about her patients and them having optimal health, so she will assertively tell you what you must do to live a long healthy life and correct you when you have bad habits that are damaging to your health. My husband and I are really blessed to have her as our physician. We both say, She's the REAL deal, and we absolutely love her!

Doctor and staff treat you like family and not like you are their next meal ticket. Nobody likes to be sick and have to go to the doctor but if you have to I highly recommend this doctor she really cares , listens and makes me take accountability for my actions when I'm not eating right with my diabeties which I need so I can keep on track with it. The staff is always so friendly and bends over backwards to get me in to see the doctor with the crazy work schedule I have.
