Dr Zalzaleh is excellent. It’s the front desk (Rita) in Mokena that is difficult to work with upon every arrival. Dr Zalzaleh is aware. Have witnessed it with other patients also. I was assured he and his nurse will be following up on yet another disappointing experience with her.

Dr Zalzaleh's ability to put you at ease and let you know that he truly cares about you as a person is amazing. He is thorough and will take as much time as he needs to explain things in a way that you understand everything about your diagnosis and what needs to be done before you walk out his door.
