Dr. Irakam's front office staff is very professional and shows an interest in patients' welfare. His nursing staff is most competent and excels in putting the patient at ease. Dr. Irakan himself is a true professional and takes the time to explain procedures and answer questions. I never feel he is rushing through my exam time and is very thorough.
