Dr. Shibu, hands down has been the best doctor that I have the pleasure being a patience of in the west bank area. Dr. Shibu takes his time with each and every patience not matter if its a minor cut or a serious illness. He makes you feel like a person and truly cares about you well being. If you are looking for a new Doctor I highly recommend giving Bethesda Medical Clinic a call. Their staff and doctors exceeds industry expectation.
