Dr. Alemayehu took his time and gave me an excellent medical advice for my problems. He is very professional and courteous. He didn't rush me out although there were other patients waiting for him. When my wife was seen by him a few years ago, I was with her and observed the same curtesy. That is why I went to see him as soon as i had some symptoms. I would highly recommend him to family members and friends.
