This so called Dr was the worst I've ever seen. He constantly forgot about my testing results. He was never up to date. This guy actually made a "joke" of me having an extremely serious life threatening viral disease and then later tells me he "was just kidding". Unbelievable!!!!! He should have his license removed! Avoid at all costs!!!!

SYLVESTER in Merrillville , IN – Jun 04, 2019
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.

Tiff in Merrillville, Ind – Mar 06, 2018
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?

Tam G in Northwest Indiana – Jan 15, 2018
Caring and competent professional. Dr Alobeid exhibits genuine compassion and interest in your well being. His diligence is complimented by a capable staff. He motivated me to lose weight which resulted in lower blood pressure and glucose level. He impressed me as capable of addressing an issue involving a cyst (should the need arise) which most physicians would be inclined to make a referral.

Dr was courtious. He is new to my husband and myself. I like that he tries to work on finding the root to your problems and not keep you in his office for just 5 minutes. Then move on to the next patient. I hate when doctors don't take the time to listen to you. We will see how it goes since I am a new patient.

It is virtually impossible to get staff to answer the phone, and then when prompted to leave a voicemail it says the mailbox is full. I've been awaiting test results for a couple of weeks now and still nothing.
