Very Knowledgeable Dr. as I had him for over 20 yrs. A lot of experience, saved me from a future stroke as he recommended me to see a cardiologist which ended an emergency procedure ( a stint), he spend time examining on each visit. very caring, taking time to listen to your concern. Very fortunate to have him as my family Dr.

Good doctor! The reason for the 1 star is the front staff. When you have rude people at the front and that's the first thing you see and talk to, it runs your image. I suggest new staff to improve. People do not want rude people that they have to deal with everytime they go to the doctor or need something from you.

The doctor is excellent, knowledgeable, and understanding! However, the office staff are incompetent and rude! They never return phone calls or advise the doctor about prescriptions and refills. Unless you are scheduling an appointment, you will get no return call or any results. They refused to refill all my scrips without an appointment even though I had just lost a daughter! Complete lack of concern! No help! Very rude.

Dr. Al-Shalchi is wonderful, his office I find is very clean, and comfortable. The waiting area is a little small but that has to do with how the building was constructed and not him. He is a busy physician with a busy schedule so you may have to wait a bit before you get called back but once you do. It's worth it, a doctor who takes time to explain my issue and appropriate steps needed to improve is so hard to find. I find Dr. Alshalchi extremely professional, truthful and trustworthy.

Dr AL-Shalchi office staff is horrible. They never return phone calls and communication is one way, which is you. They need to go work retail and learn how to treat people. If they were a retail store, they could not sell me a glass of water in the desert, and when you are in the desert water sells itself. So if you call, never ever leave a message, they are very disorganized and inatentaive and they treat you like you are a bother. Dr AL-Shalchi is a mediocre doctor, he leaves much to be des

I recommend Dr. Al Shalchi to anyone who is looking for an Internal Medicine physician. He listens, answers questions, and offers sound advice. He spends time with me, explaining everything in a very patient manner. He is courteous, respectful, and always professional. I find his staff to be kind, understanding, and skilled. It is difficult to get blood drawn from me, but his nurse always hits the vein on the first try. Love it!

They don't commit to the appointments. The reception is awful. The nurses are rude and disrespectful. They are racist, and they treat everyone awfully. The doctor himself is snotty and does not respect boundaries and gives the worst medical help. Now I understand why most of the people I know ran away from him. I wouldn't recommend him to anyone if he was the last doctor on earth. Ever. We are definitely not staying with him.
