I have been a patient of Dr. Saleem's for about 3 years. Dr. Saleem has performed surgery on both ankles. Thanks to Dr. Saleem my ankles are stable and I no longer fear that a misstep will cause me to fall.

Made appointment on phone call.They booked it right away.when i got there the dr walked in and said i dont take insurance u have. managed so hard to get there since i broke my ankle and i was already in rehab . Had to go for followup checkup to this dr and i was reffered by the hospital at time of discharge. Dr omar saleem he is such a rude and heartless man . He asked his assistant to remove cast that i had on ankle and asked me to go to hospital to put it back. Never ever consult this doctor
