Spent under 10 mins on first meeting, brought in intern into consulting room without explaining his presence or introducing him, seemed to arrive at a diagnosis from the get go, pushed me out with a bunch of papers for tests he wanted done with no mention or explanation of what and why, and was dismissive even when I went back and asked what he wanted done and why. I wouldn't go back to him again.
I was referred to Dr. Hakim at Cleveland Clinic after being butchered by a so-called implant specialist in Miami for my Peyronie's disease. Even though I had to wait a few weeks for the appointment, it was worth the wait. Dr. Hakim and his staff are wonderful. He took his time with us and answered all of my wife's and my concerns. The corrective surgery he performed went great and I was able to go home after the operation with very little discomfort (I had 6 months of pain afer my original procedure in Miami!). Now that I am all healed, my wife and I have our sex life back. I only wish I had gone to him first. I highly recommend Dr. Hakim and his outstanding staff at the Cleveland Clinic.
Dr. Hack'em said that the device for my limpness was a 30 minute simple installation with high success rate. It was supposed to be a piece of cake and I would be 20 yrs old and new. Well, I can tell you that he mangled my size and the device shrunk my manhoodâI am talking about my member. It was a real âhack jobâ. When I complained to him, Dr. Hack'em told my wife â size does not really matterâ and then his nurse told me I should lose weight (how is that going to change anything0? Ok, I was already pudgy before Dr. Hackâem did his shoddy work. Dr. Hackâem is a big time hack job.
Dr. Hakim told me that my Peyronieâs disease could be treated with shots. These shots cost $13, 000 and I have a high deductible insurance. Hey, it is my sex life after all. Every appointment Dr. Hakim was charismatic and positive. But the truth is I was frustrated cause all I was getting out of it was a big BILL. I switched to a Urologist in Coral Gables Dr. Perito at my buddyâs urging. My wife did this research on the internet about Dr. Perito and some of it was not good. But I can tell you, Dr. Perito is an action guy and got me surgery. The improvement only took about a month and I am better. Dr. Hakim is hype guy and Dr. Perito is a knife guy. Donât waist your time and money with Dr. Hakim.
