I have been seen by Dr. Hakim multiple times and have found him to always take his time with me. He answered all mine and my husbands questions without rushing us. I have recommended him to several people I know.

I found Dr, Hakim to be very professional & understanding. He listened to my concerns before giving his opinion. Very knowledgeable & caring. Going to a specialist can be intimidating but he is very easy to talk to. After my procedure he came immediately to tell me what he saw & to calm my concerns. I didn’t have to wait weeks for an office visit. His entire team has the same ethics as he does. Most importantly he listened to my concerns which unfortunately many doctors don’t do anymore.

I have seen Dr. Hakim for years now and he is the absolute best at what he does. He is an intelligent and articulate individual capable of clearly explaining any and all questions one might have. One of the best doctors I've ever met!

Everyone on his team was great, I was treated as though they all knew me and were extremely attentive to making me feel comfortable especially Kate who put me to sleep and woke me up too!!!! I know Dr. Hakim was a little shocked when I asked for a copy of the Koran and didn't think I was serious but I would like to read it. Ralph Carbone, USN Retired

I've had Three Colonoscopies and a Endoscopy recently...and haven't had any problems that I know of. Dr. Hakim ask if I had any questions every time. Someone else wanted to know why Dr. Hakim only gets Three stars, and I too would like to know!
