Patient Comments (1)
in Philadelphia, PA |
When I first started seeing Dr. Alkasem a few years ago, she was wonderful and very helpful. The last couple appointments she has been abrupt and dismissive - she's actually cut me off while I was talking. It's also extremely difficult to get an appointment sooner than your scheduled follow up if your symptoms increase - appointments are usually 3-4 months out.
