in Childersburg, AL |
Referred to Dr Hakim after my Dr of 26 years dropped me. I have a ton of serious health issues and Hakim and Danne McLain have been wonderful in treating these problems. Yes appointments can run behind but I believe it is worth the wait, They take whatever time is needed for each patient. I have never been rushed through my appointments. Thorough explanations and discussions for each issue with answers that a patient can understand.

I was very impressed by his professional style and his bedside manner

My husband was referred to Dr Hakim. We have now been waiting for his appointment 2 1/2 hours. When you have a neurological disease you don't have the time or ability to sit with extreme pain in a waiting room. We were told to arrive 15 minutes early, which is rediculous when the doctor is 2 1/2 hours late!
