I cannot say enough lovely things about Dr. El-Tamer. He is warm, thorough, sensitive and very clear. I would recommend him again and again.

I would give this person a ZERO star if I could!! Simply put..DO NOT go to this doctor. He was very impatient and displayed an arrogant attitude with me during my visit..worst person I've ever met. I simply can not trust this person nor his judgement.
