Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Dr Al-Alim was kind and empathetic to my injury. He did not seem rushed while he was in the office with me and took the time to explain very thoroughly my injury and answer any questions I had. He even took the time with a follow-up call to see how I was doing. I would definitely recommend him!!

This provider was extremely professional and knowledgeable. He was thorough and spent time going over specific exercises and body mechanics. He was genuinely concerned about my future ability to maintain my current activity level and was certain to cover all bases so there was a smooth healing process. He is an active, sports guy and understands the importance of maintaining lifestyles without making unrealistic goals. I would HIGHLY recommend patients of any age to him.

Dr. Al-Alim patiently listened to me describe the problem I was experiencing with my finger and hand . He explained the procedure before and during and answered all of my questions. I have not had any further issues with my finger.

Dr.Al-Alim was one of the kindest Doctors I've ever met. He was very friendly and made sure we understood everything in the appointment. He made sure i properly healed and felt better not just temporary fixed the issue. On my second visit he did an injection that was needed for my issue. I had no pain while the injection was completed and he made sure i fully understood the procedure with no questions . Any question i had he answered in a way i understood without any worries.

My appointment was at 2:40. I was told I was next for an hour while I watched him go into other rooms continuously. This doctor is a joke and if you have places to be DO NOT COME HERE. It is now 3:31 and I'm still sitting in The room waiting while he takes came of other people. Never coming back again.
