Dr. Alim, I am so happy I was led to you. You represent a very professional and personally interested attitude. You give quality time and information. Jasmine is very professional and thorough in her assistance to you. Both of your offices and personnel are accommodating and pleasant.

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.

Very nice Doctor. Did some testing found the problem with my lungs , came up with a treatment plan and explainined throughly, made sure I understood every aspect of the process and treatment. Dr. Alim spends time making sure your very comfortable in understanding whats going on, he makes sure before he leaves the room. He has a very polite, caring disposition and he's funny too. What a great Doctor! I'm very lucky to have him treating me.
