Very professional, competent, thorough. A really good doctor.
Called for copy of sleep study 7/3 /2010 refused to supply it !
I suffered for almost six months with burning in my back and shortness of breath. Other doctors could not find out what was wrong with me but this doctor knew almost immediately. I have asthma and with the inhalers he prescribed I am doing great. Thanks for giving me back my life.
Very courteous, listens, spends adequate time, wonderful and knowledgable doctor with a great personality. Sincerely cares. Would definitely recommend him. Office staff friendly and efficient .
Dr. El Harakeh is very pleasant to talk to, and patient but persistent in getting to the problems with tests, then therapy. It is good for me to be accountable to him to ensure getting better. My daughter recommended him because she is a patient of his. We are now both in the good care of an very excellent physician.
He saved me from er visits many times, cant thank him enough.
Very knowledgable and very nice doctor.
He saved my life.
I have had COPD for years. My doctor referred me to Dr. El-Harakeh and I had an appointment on a Saturday in less than two weeks after they received the referral. His nurse and front desk staff very nice and helpful. I spent about 30 min with the Dr discussing my health concern. That day he set me up for sleep study and pft. He also started me on a medicine to help with my breathing that I had been trying to get family doctor to give me for years. He listens and then gives it to you straight. He does not beat around the bush. Glad I got the referral to see him.
Dr. El-Harakeh is he best doctor in Prescott Hands down. After a sudden onset of health issues, I had seen several Doctors this past year. He listened to my symptoms, and corrected my lung issues promptly. He gave me a referral to a neurologist who found my diagnosis that the other Doctors had missed. My lung capacity was at 65% when I first went time him, Now at 98%. Amazing Doctor. Recommend him to everyone. Listens and is genuinely concerned. Gives advice when needed. Easy to talk to, and I don't feel rushed through appt. There might be a wait time, but Its because he is always packed....a sign of a good Doctor.
Due to complications from chemo and and work habitat I went from someone who could not walk from more than 1/10th of a mile without resting, back to walking 18 holes of golf with a push cart under the Doc's care, he certainly made the right choices when it came to my health. I give the whole expierence with him and his staff an A .
He reviewed my file and was knowledgeable of all important facts. Listened to me and answered all of my questions. Explained very carefully how to use prescribed inhalers. Made suggestions for future treatment. I felt very comfortable with him and decided to transfer my records over to his office. I also found his staff very efficient and caring. His nurse was very helpful and efficient. I highly recommend Dr. El-Harakeh and his staff!
After so many years of suffering doctor elharakeh treated my copd and now my breathing is much better. able to walk to my mailbox and work in the garden. my visiting nurse is very impressed with what i can do now. thank you best doctor....
I've seen Dr. El-Harakeh several times and, each time, I found him to be very knowledgable, caring and proactive as a partner with me to treat my chronic allergies and lung condition. I do agree with other comments that his staff could use an overhaul (sloppy, rude, disorganized front office and M.A. staff), and the wait time can be extensive, but that's because he will always work into his schedule any patient who needs immediate care. Overall I give him the highest marks for active listening, accurate diagnosing and the appropriate treatment for me! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this respiratory specialist!
So many years of suffering ended when I met dr elharakeh. thanks to him I have a better life now. cannot thank him enough......
Think about things like... What was most memorable? What did you like or dislike? What would you tell a friend? Would you choose this doctor again?
From my first visit this Dr. listened to what I had to say about my health concerns. I received the necessary tests followed by diagnosis and treatment and feel great and able to do the things I love again. I was going downhill due to asthma. My previous Dr. was treating me for a heart condition that I did not have.....Dr. El-Harakeh is a warm, intelligent and caring person who works very hard to help his patients. Glad he is here in Prescott!
I was practically in the hospital 8 times every year for chest congestion and not being able to breath. Since I met this doctor I did not go even once, thank you is not enough for doctor elharekeh.
This doctor needs to go back to his own country! Im sure the people there love being treated like trash. this dr is rude arrogant and just plain mean and his staff acts like they are on drugs. dont wast your time with this clown there are to many good dr out there.
He is a very caring doctor who wants to really help you. I was nervous about seeing him at first...but he is EXCELLENT!
highly impressed from first encounter. very highly recommend.....
After visiting with three other doctors, Dr el-harake diagnosed and treated me. I was impressed that he reviewed my records and knew every thing about me before coming into the room. Very happy to have him.
I went in to see him to have him explain my echocardiam and chest X-ray but every time I tried to pin him down he would change the subject. I didn't get the info I wanted and he inferred that the tests that I had taken previously were not important. I felt that he was not listening to my concerns
Practicing in a rural communitty,. where most of the population ois elderly, Dr. El-Harake, who is a former "hospitalist", now Pulmonologist, obviously focuses on the volume of patients he can see, rather than the quality, or PRACTICING MEDICINE. The physicians in the area Dr. practices, MUST remember, the MAJORITY of determining a correct diagnosis MUST include a COMPLETE H&P, done himself (herself). DO NOT ASSUME, do not prejudge and DON'T model your practice after a crappy, CAR WASH; one in, one out. Too many mistake, which will get everyone in trouble!
this Dr helped me a lot. I had a cough for two year. I have seen many physicians. He stopped my cough in ten days. He is very smart. Some of his staff need to be changed.
I really like this doctor. He is smart and seems to really care about my health and well being. My last experience with his staff was several months ago - and I have to agree with other reviewers on this site who said they were not very helpful! I'm hoping it's improved - need to make an appointment this week!
the Dr. himself was very helpful. He seemed to care about my overall feelings and concerns and seemed to want what was best for me. The staff however has always been Rude and unhelpful. they seem to have an attitude with me every time i go in and make me feel very uncomfortable. but i would recomend this Dr. you just have to be prepaired to fight with his staff.
New medical assistant better than old. Office secretaries improving but need more training.
