I have the pleasure of using Dr. El Sharif for my elderly mother (86 years old; dementia, post stroke, and essential tremors) and my 21 year old son with high functioning autism. Dr. El Sharif has been wonderful with both of them. He listens to them, and he explains things thoroughly, in a very understandable way. He returns phone calls promptly, even returning one of my calls while he was on vacation. He is very knowledgeable regarding neurological disorders and we highly recommend him.
