I never normally write reviews but in this case I feel the need to. I went in as an emergency to see Dr. Sleem last Saturday. The girls gave me an appointment after explaining to them I thought I had an infection. Mohamed, one of the techs, is absolutely great. He interacts very well and explains things very clearly. The guy knows his stuff. After i saw the dr whom is extremely professional and caring. Really a nice guy. He told one of the other techs to perform an allergy test on me and i panicked because im scared of needles. The tech Zeina was a very nice girl and she explained it would not hurt and it was nothing like needles. She talked me through the whole thing which I thought was very nice of her. On the way out the girls gave me an appt which I will be going back to!! Highly Highly recommend
