Ive had problems communicating with Dr. Bekele but things have gotten better. The office manager, Winnie makes my experience the worst I've had with any doctors office. I would not reccomend this practice to anyone. I'm looking now for a new doctor
in Phoenix, AZ |
Dr. Bekele was very thorough, friendly, and very informative. He explained all of the potential causes for my condition, and what tests were going to be run to determine the proper diagnosis. Dr. Bekele spent the right amount of time with me to make sure that all my questions were answered and that I was well informed when I left. Winnie (the office manager) was very helpful and friendly. I would highly recommend Dr. Bekele to anyone.
