""Do not recommend this doctor strongly"" Worst place for people who expects a good treatment here and "worst staff ever I have seen in my entire life".first time when they gave me an appointment with Dr Tamer Wassef I drove 40 mins for this appointment and receptionist simply tells me that the doctor is not available for the day he works only Thursday,Friday & Saturday then I questioned why they gave me an appointment on Monday. She says recklessly that somebody did a mistake then I asked why

To begin with, this is an extremely rare, genuinely concerned humanitarian and compassionate doctor who goes well beyond the scope of her limitations as a medical professional to ensure that her patients are taken care of appropriately. She will take a vested interest in your needs and goals in life to ensure that the proper treatment modalities are utilized. Extremely empathy, patience, kindness, psychological insight, as well as productive humor are her strengths !
