I was initially pleased with my care from Dr. Alim. As time went on I had difficulty with her lack of any kind of bedside manner. Her directness borders on rudeness.

I have been her patient for almost two years going to see her regularly every three months. She diagnosed me with inflammatory arthritis. Once checked blood during this time and never did MRI. She always only checked my hands saying that all is fine and she is very satisfied. I went to another doctor who checked my blood work and did MRI. I had high RF now and erosions all over my hands. I would not recommend Dr. Alim to anybody. She is not very caring doctor.

Dr. Alim has been amazing. Once diagnosed with RA I had a horrible experience with my first Dr. I basically felt like my life was now going to be pain and suffering. Dr. Alim was recommended by a co-worker, she was so sweet and listened to my story. She quickly went into action to find the right medications for me. After a few trials I am now pain free, I only go into see her for regular follow ups. She is very responsive, she takes excellent notes . LOVE HER, Changed my life!

Dr Alim is one of the best physicians . She is kind and is always willing to listen to me before making her own conclusions. Whe makes me feel like a himan being and not a medical record. Her staff is very kind and that reflects her nature. Thank you Dr Alim

I went to see Dr. Alim regarding potential fibromyalgia, and she was both thorough and pleasant in the way she interacted with me as a patient. She concluded that I did not have fibromyalgia, a conclusion which was later proven correct when I was diagnosed with Lyme disease. The fact that Dr. Alim was thorough and did not simply give me the original diagnosis that I wanted allowed me to find the real problem and seek to correct it in the appropriate manner.

I had the most pleasant office visit with Dr. Alim this afternoon. She performed the allergy testing herself (most doctors would hand that off to the medical assistant to save time). Apparently she does that for everybody, and that shows her clinical commitment to excellence. Although I am a physician, I have no relationship with Dr. Alim other than as her patient. Her knowledge and clinical skill is outstanding and sometimes I wish my bedside manner would be as strong as hers.

Doctor was friendly enough, however I didn't feel like she was interested in what I had to say. After my second visit, she stated to me that she does not handle any pain management, which I felt was out of line and quite offensive. I am not and have not been on any pain medications, not have any desire to be. My concern was a refill on an epipen, to which I was referred back to my pcp. Two wasted drives to the med center.
