Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

I have had several office visits with Dr. Alim. He has always been very professional and curtious. Dr. Alim is very detailed in trying to get to the bottom of each health issue I've experienced. He truly takes his time in each office visit, I never feel as though I am being rushed in and out of his office. Any time I have had any additional concerns, or questions, etc. Dr. Alim is always quick to respond. I have seen many doctors and I highly recommend Dr. Salman Alim.

The one thing I found invigorating with Dr. Alim was his approach to the situation that you are dealing with- straight forward honesty. My situation may have been different due in part that I went from one hospital to another in a matter of 4 days for my treatment, but he was there for me and above all else- honest. I will definitely consider him should the need arise for me to have the need to seek his help again.

Dr. Alim had been seeing me for a while now and is very in-tuned to my disease. He has made a concerted effort to make sure I have all the right medicines and that my health is as good as it can be. He is also very easy to talk to, takes his time with me and answers all questions with a smile.

After 3 days in hospice my mom passed away. It took this doctor exactly 10 days to sign the certificate of death so we could incinerate her. Many people tried to get the doctor to sign it so we could have the funeral with all her grandchildren that were here from college with no luck. We had to do just a memorial service with the whole family and do the funeral at a later time with just a handful of us. Still we dont understand why took him so long (i think 10 days the max allowed by law)

Dr Alim was my DR in the hospital. I have called his office 3 times since I was out, and all 3 times he has called back himself within an hour. Most Dr's have a nurse call back, but I really appreciated the fact he took the time to call back himself.
