My 94 year old mother has been going to see Dr Al-Andary for about 15 years. He always so kind and patient with her. He has monitored her COPD and managed to keep her going when I didn't think she would see 80. She is still going, in considerable good health, and loving life. During her last hospitalization, he told me to contact him by cell phone if I had any issues or concerns. Linda, his office assistant, is also very helpful and is always available for any issues. Absolutely love him!

First time I've visited a doctor and wasn't bombarded by receptionist, tech and nurse! Wait was a bit long but WELL worth it as he actually listens to you! I had been told I had COPD and lung nodules since 2002 but never took meds for it and had no problems. Dr. Al-Andary looked through the records I brought with me including CTs of nodules and COPD tests. He confirmed I did not need meds and nodules are no concern since there's been no change. If I ever have lung problems, going to him!

doctor alandary is not only an excellent doctor he is also a very compassionate person. He has showed my family he is "not about the money", but about helping the patient. So many times we, the patients, find the doctors we go to have little time for us and feel rushed and we get frustrated because we feel we are not important. This is not the case with Dr. Alandary he takes however much time to make the patient feel all their questions are answered and that they are important. Thank you dr alan
