I was extremely impressed with Dr. Hajar and her kind and thorough explanation of my health conditions and planned treatments made me feel as if I couldn't be in better hands.

two things, one was the blood work, i did not fully understand what testing I was doing and the sheet did not tell me if I needed to fast or not. two the information as where my next exam was confusing. At the office I was told one place and when I was contacted to schedule I was told an other. I have concluded things in the office are still new and not fully worked out and are in progress with the doctor being new to this office. I understand that and just wanted to share. I have full confidence in my team.
