I Have been seeing Dr. A for about 8 months & I wish every doctor I have encountered throughout my life, was as Caring, Knowledgeable, Friendly & Concerned for their patients, as He Is!!! I Personally have NOT had any problems with Any of the Staff, front or back. I've never had a problem getting my meds. refilled either. Dr. A is Def. the 2nd Best Dr. I've ever had { No Offense Dr.A. }! How Ever, Talking to a LIVE person when calling the office or getting a return call, U can FORGET That!

After being seen by Dr. Alerfia a number of times I have lost confidence in him and his staff. Dr. Alrefai continues to schedule appointments in between my regular 90 day appointments to refill my scrips . My regular appointments are every three months but my meds need to be updated every month for some reason and I have to make an appointment for that to happen. This cost money, a lot of money. Dr. Alrefai front desk people are rude and they never answer. Time for me to find a new Dr.

Today was my first visit with Dr A. He took the time to listen to everything I was concerned about and then answered each and every question with confidence and patience. I agree with many other that the front desk staff is very unpleasant, but his personality and quality of care immediately make up for that. I will be back as often as neccesary!

My daughter and I presented as new patients to Dr. Alrefai. We waited in the office for well over an hour while many people that got there after us were called back. The front desk staff was dismissive and rude. Finally Dr. Alrefai himself stepped in and we were taken back almost immediately. We absolutely loved him and his nutritionist. Both were very caring, listened to us, asked tons of questions and were very thorough. We believe that Dr. Alrefai is going to be a wonderful doctor for us!

Dr alrefia Mr quick turn around.want u to try these $800 dollar a month meds that insurance laughs at. Fighting nurses in the office ask for things and no reply from the doctor for weeks and repeated try's WOW could not even my records sent. I had to go get them were they try to not give them to me after weeks of trying.the doc sent me a script that we already tried. Not looking at his records D O N O T. G O

Dr. Alrefai is fantastic. His office staff is absolutely awful. The people that schedule are rude. They never answer the phone. The front desk staff is rude. They treat you like you are inconveniencing them with any little question. Dr. Alrefai needs to just hit the hard re-set button on his staff and get people in there who don't give off such an awful impression. Unfortunately his greatness doesn't carryover to his staff and that makes me sad for him, bc he really is wonderful!
