He's such a nice guy! Used to a lot of doctors with no bedside manner and a visible lack of regard for their patients. I went in to see him for an ear issue a few months ago and he's now my GP. Highly recommended.

It's extremely unprofessional to schedule patient appointments when he doctor is not in office. After questioning my 45 minute wait, the staff confirmed they regularly have appointments starting an hour before the doctor even arrives. Ontop of it, he was unprepared, not having read the basics of my file. Why do I spend 20 minutes filing out forms if they aren't going to be read? Doctor was nice once he showed up, but I'd prefer someone who respects my time and knows his patients. Disappointed in the experience.

Dr Saleem has such an awesome and authentic heart for his profession and for his patient's experience! He is engaging and genuinely cares about how you're feeling, ......and when you answer that question, he truly listens bc he really wantsto know, vs. Just throwing out that dialogue in such a robotic manner, like so many doctors do, maybe out of a professional formality; but certainly not bc they genuinely care about your well-being! ALSO, his front desk professional, as well as his nurse are simply the BEST in creating a very upbeat and warm tone, which really kicks off the patient's first impression of their medical practice!! I am grateful for finding Dr Saleem & Team, and Highly recommend them all! __shannon

Very impressed with the speed of service, Dr. Saleem's kind, professional demeanor, and the efficiency of the office staff. It was overall a pleasant experience. Dr. Saleem exhibited no sign of being rushed as he asked probing questions anddemonstrated that he was listening closely to my responses. Previous reviewers have complained about having to pay with cash or check, however, I am pleased to share that the office does accept credit and debit cards now. I was pleasantly surprised when I realized that less than 45 minutes after my appointment, I was out the door. Ruth, the nurse working today, was also kind, caring and professional.

Dr. Saleem is fantastic. I liked him the second he walked into the exam room. I told him what my symptoms were, and he got my treatment squared away. With that being done, he could have bid me farewell and movedto the next patient, as the whole point in me being there was satisfied. Instead, sensing that I was in no rush, and cognizant that this was my first appointment with him, he decided to chat with me, so that we could get to know each other, me being a new patient and all. He then proceeded to tell me about his residency and training as a young doctor (which was related to my ailments). The stories were anecdotal, of course, and he respected his patients' privacy. It was more about him developing a doctor-patient relationship with me, almost like he was interviewing for the job, yet remaining conversational. I could tell that he is a smart man, he cares about his patients, and he really likes what he does. He was very personable. It was easy to see that he is a people person and thrives on and is grateful for the opportunity to meet new people everyday to get to know them. I'm so glad I chose him when picking out a new PCP under my insurance. Dr. Saleem is a great doctor.

I selected Dr. Saleem for my husband's new pcp based on rating by patients and I must say I was so impressed that I changed my own pcp to Dr.Saleem. He takes the time to make sure you have an understanding,he doesn't get frustrated with your questions regardless of how many, and most importantly he will waste no time on trying to solve your concerns. His staff is also nice. I love these guys you can't find good caring doctors these days and I really admired that if your concerned about anything he will bring you peace of mind even if he has to recommend testing. Thanks Dr. Saleem... I will not be switching doctors for myself or myself. Were both very happy with Saleem and his staff.

After so many futile attempts with other medical professionals to obtain equipment & home care that was crucial - it only took 1 appointment with Dr. Saleem to "get the ball rolling" and everything happened the very next day! His staffwas terrific and Dr. Saleem was friendly, professional and very caring. If you are looking for 1st rate care - Dr. Saleem.

I set my appointment through Zoc Doc for 10:30. The dr wasn't even in the office until 11 or so. I don't appreciate the tardiness, my time is also valuable. Also, it seems his family runs the office and the guythere seemed pretty unprofessional and had no sympathy for me setting an appointment for 10:30 and having to wait over 30 minutes for the doctor to even get there. I was running really high fever and had body aches. All signs pointed to the Flu but wanted to make sure and possibly get some medicine. He didn't even do a normal nasal flu test. Instead he sent me downstairs to get blood work. I did the blood work the morning of my appointment on 3/4/16. I got the results TODAY on 3/30/16. "Everything came back normal" they said. It took 26 days to get those results with no firm answer to what my illness was. Also, they charged me and my insurance more than what it cost to go to a specialist. Overall I had a very negative experience and probably won't return in the future.

It was a good visit but I wouldn't go back. The receptionis didn't know my co-pay and didn't take debit so I had to go look for a bank to pull out money to pull out co pay and when returningno one was there to accept my co pay I had to staple it and leave a note on front desk and keep calling to assure money was accepted

What he gave me worked well so far, hoping thatI don't have to go back for an illness but I think I found my primary care doctor.

My visit with Dr. Saleem was good. He was friendly and seemed genuinely concerned. The problem was with the front desk person. He was busy taking the weight, blood pressure, and initial assessment of patients while also having to cover thefront desk, answering phones, send faxes, to properly address anyone coming in. On top of that, they only accept cash. And if they're going to only accept cash, they should have it posted somewhere AND have change. It seemed very disorganized. They need additional staff for better customer service and have a credit card machine.
