I am very impressed ! When I first met Dr. Alobeid I thought it was going to be a typical in and out visit. You know where you’re left feeling like you weren’t really listened to and just handed a prescription to get you out of the office. This visit was completely different he was wonderful. Not only did he listen to me and I mean actually listen, I left the office highly motivated because I finally had a resolution. Thank you Dr. Alobeid !

I started seeing Dr. Alobeid in Jan of this year. He is amazing. He is helping me to get my health to where it needs to be. He is helping me lose weight as well which so far is going great. He really listens to you and is a very caring doctor. Everyone in his staff is very friendly and great. Highly recommended.

I will be finding a doctor that remains professional at all times AND DOESN’T YELL AT HIS PATIENTS. I’m grown, be glad that I had self restraint while you yelled to me as if I was your child.

It is rare that I leave a negative review however there are many problems with this office. Recently the entire staff was replaced which to me signals problems with the MD as opposed to the nurse g staff. As an RN myself I was extremely upset st my last visit when Dr. Aloneid came in and stated why are you here, I replied for a refill and when I told him the medication he stated I was not on that medication. He began reading someone else’s mess to me before I asked who’s record are you in?

He was very easy to talk to. He never made the appointments feel rushed, especially the initial consultation appointment. He made sure he had all of my information to take the best course of action.
