Dr Sharaf was easy to talk to and personable. He asked lots of questions about family history. He had fully researched my own medical records in advance. He wrote his note and sent it to me by the next day. He recommended various tests based on family and personal history. No other Dr I had seen had focussed on some of the things Dr Sharaf did as needing further exploration. I feel fortunate to have his help in assessing future risk.

It was a very positive experience. Dr. Sharaf is professional, knowledgeable and friendly. His explanations and answers to my questions made the complex subject of genetic testing accessible to me. I made the appointment several months in advance, and it was worth waiting for The actual waiting time for the appointment on site was less than 10 minutes.

I did not leave 5 stars for scheduling. It takes month to get an appointment with Dr Sharaf, although when my follow up appointment was scheduled for 3 months later, I contacted him and his office called to schedule me earlier, during his lunch break.
