Dr. Ibrahim has saved my life. I have been coming to see Dr. Ibrahim for 20 years, when I first came to him I couldn't function properly and he diagnosed me right away. He has given me the proper care for me to survive and without his proper diagnosis I wouldn't be here today.

First went to Dr. Ibrahim because of his excellent rating in Inland Empire magazine. I'm delighted that I did. He listens carefully, asks questions to make sure he understands fully, explains clearly, and is pleasant and respectful in the way he treats me. I was so pleased with his care that my sister also went to him. Again, very insightful and a great help.

I received a referral from my doctor's physician assistant to see Dr. Ibrahim. I have nominal aphasia symptoms, balance issues, and syncope. I also have troubles sleeping. When I spoke to the receptionist on the phone to make an appointment, she made her own diagnosis without a physician's license. Then, she prohibited me from making an appointment.

When I initially went to schedule my appointment I was told that I would be able to get in around the (17th) 3 weeks after by initial appointment. It took them 4 days to get an appointment because first they needed my notes and then once they received them I never got a call and they deleted them after 24 hours. Once I was able to get an appointment they called the day before to say it needed to be rescheduled. After I tried to get an Afternoon appointment, Yolanda became irritated and hung up o

I have been a patient for approximately 10 years and have always received quality care from Dr. Ibrahim. Over that time, he has met my needs in regards to appointments and medication. Most important, he handled my condition professionally and to the best of his ability. Seizure activity minimal to almost absent. Thanks to treatment received from Dr. Ibrahim.

I was blessed with the experience I had with Dr. Ibrahim and especially his staff. I can't put into words how kind, sincere and gentle everyone was with me. I'm 92 years old and the patience they had with me was unparalleled. I truly feel they cared about my well being. Thank you dearly Dr. Ibrahim and all your great staff. Elizabeth S.

the people who answer the phones are the worst people. they have no empathy for people who are concerned about themselves or their loved ones. They respond with no feelings. horrible.

He is both medically skilled and also attentive to patient's symptoms and needs. His manner is professional, focused, attentive, calm, and gentle. He diagnosed my MS after 4 other neurologists didn't, in 2 states and across a decade in time (1997-2007). I'm grateful to have found him and would recommend him to anyone.

He is a caring, gentle man. He is patient and listens carefully. He phrases questions to seek clarity rather than to impress and distance. He is an excellent diagnostician He spells out treatment options clearly, concisely, and in ways that are understandable. After seeing a fairly large number of physicians in large medical centers during the last sixty years, he is one of the few that I wouldn't mind having a conversation with over a cup of coffee to discuss something besides my health issues

I would research your own neurological condition first before wasting your time going to this doctor as he may not know much about your condition. You could end up worse off and waste your time. I wouldn't recommend him to anyone.
Dr Ibrahim is wonderful. His office staff (nurse) is unfriendly and does not follow through with refills, phone calls or medical authorizations to insurance . This is not a one time thing.... It's an ongoing issue.
