Best sleep doctor I've been to. Actually listened, cared about my issues and discussed how to resolve the problem, rather than simply trying to blow me off.

Short, not overly helpful visit, with little discussion of my options. Visited on 7/9 and by 8/29, after a dozen phone calls over 7 week period, I am still waiting to speak with the doctor or have any sort of follow-up.

Dr. Ahoubim is a wonderful doctor. I was having trouble staying asleep past 3-5 hours a night and suffering from overall poor sleep for about a year now. I've seen other doctors, but no doctor was able to offer the levelof insight that Dr. Abrouhim provided. He was able to attack the root cause of what was causing my sleepless nights rather than prescribe me drugs that only attacked the symptoms. Under the direction of Dr. Abrouhim I have been able to sleep restfully.

SO frustrating!!! My initial appointment with the doctor was very pleasant. He was detailed and answered all of my questions. The doctor seemed to be great but his business operations need a serious overhaul. Very hard to get a hold ofanyone at the office. I called the office and sent the office emails several times using the contact information from their website. I never heard back and could never get through. When I referenced their business card, I noticed the number was different. I called and gave feedback that their website had outdated information. I was simply told that they were aware of the issue and would be updating it. It's been two months and it's still not updated. How is this not a priority task as a business? Now this is the second day I've called at around 4:30/4:45 p.m. and I've been told by what I assume is an answering center that they are not in the office. I asked what their hours are so I could call back during them and she said they are 9 - 5. Very confusing and odd then that I can't reach someone during their office hours. Additionally, I had to follow up with the office multiple times to see if they submitted my sleep study referral before it got done. So frustrating to have to chase a business down for what should be basic things like being able to get in contact with them. I only chased as long as I did because they are so close to my office and there aren't many doctors like this in the city but at this point, I'd rather search and travel longer to a doctor who operates a more efficient business. I don't typically write negative reviews and will often opt to email the company directly so they have an opportunity to address the feedback without it being publicly promoted. But as I mentioned, the company does not have a working email so my hope is that the doctor will see this feedback and can make these basic changes to improve his business. Bottom line: Doctor seemed great, business operations and patient service needs serious work.

First visit went smooth- no waiting time. A follow up was necessary after the test, but no one contact me. A month after the tests I've decided to check with him. His secretary Juan from Florida made things very difficult andI had to wait almost 2 hrs to see the doctor on a follow up. I am not going back to this office- something is fishy.

I saw the Doctor in January for issues regarding sleeping/snoring/apnea. He billed my insurance for certain machines and sleep studies. It is now April and after months of my trying to reach the doctor again through emails and calls with Sylvia,his assistant, he has not been able to 'follow up' with me.

Never waited long and our interactions were pleasant, issue comes down to a single visit vs. a complicated diagnosis. Fine for one visit but poor communication and no follow-up made it difficult to get a diagnosis, organize tests, etc. Movedto another doctor as the delays were taking too long.

The office is tiny and bare-bones, so at first I was a little wary, but Dr. Ahoubim put me at ease right away. He asked good questions, listened closely, and took everything I told him very seriously. He reassured me thathe didn't believe I was in any danger while ordering sufficient tests to back up his initial diagnosis. At one point he asked whether an unusual aspect of my sleep was something I considered a problem or a disorder, rather than rushing to treat it. He was very willing to collaborate with my other doctors. I look forward to seeing him again and have recommended him to someone else I know with sleep problems.

Dr. Daniel Ahoubim and his staff, especially Sylvia, are amazing! Dr. Ahoubim has such a warm, caring bedside manner. During my appointment I had a lot of questions and concerns as I've been dealing with my issue for the past twomonths, so my stress level has been high. He was very understanding, patient, and truly listened to everything I had to say. He was even ready to personally call my family doctor to inform her of my symptoms and conditions, however I did not have a family doctor I've stuck with. Both Sylvia and Dr. Ahoubim are very on top of things, letting me know what my next steps will be, getting me into appointments for testing immediately, efficient in their responses and call backs, they really are amazing! I feel comfortable in their hands and can't recommend them enough!

Dr. Ahoubim was very thorough in his examination and has an excellent bedside manner. He knew right away what my issue was and asked the right questions to achieve the best result for that issue. He's very caring; the office staffwas very warm, friendly and professional. He's very attentive to the needs of his patients and gets to the root of issues, not work around them in an expedited manner. I would definitely recommend him.

I look for three things in a good doctor: 1. Desire to help me. 2. Thoroughness and expertise in my problems. 3. An easy and pleasant experience. Dr. Daniel is definitely all three! His office staff and him are warm andfriendly and saw me right away. Dr. Daniel was very inquisitive, asking great questions and really helping share information where I wasn't sure to how explain my problem. And Dr. Daniel really is eager to help. He ordered a battery of tests (which I appreciate since I generally feel more information in this case is better) and explained everything. I'd highly recommend him to anyone experiencing any type neurological pain.

I have had two visits so far with Dr. Ahoubim. The initial visit was very thorough, and he took his time to explain his assessment to me, and very much seemed to understand my symptoms (insomnia, indications of sleep apnea). Heasked questions and assessed my sleep patterns in a way that felt like he knew how to create a tool box of behaviors to help me sleep. His approach is practical and I appreciate his strategy in trying to develop a healthier circadian rhythm, as my past experiences relying solely on medication were not pleasant given the side effects. I've learned the hard way medication alone isn't going to fix this. He suggested natural supplements and has me on a sleep cycle program to address my insomnia with a solution instead of a band aid. The plan makes sense though it is challenging. He made the referral for a sleep study easy as well, which was the part I was most worried about. He got my info over to a study center the same day of the appointment so they could reach out to me. He has kept in touch between visits to see how the sleep program is going and to help guide me and make adjustments to ensure success. Very happy I decided to bite the bullet and go to a specialist. I appreciate his concern and have confidence in his knowledge of his specialization.

So far, Dr. Ahoubim has been excellent. Office staff is excellent as well. Just one area to be aware of.. The Dr. recently moved to a new office next door and the phone systems aren't properly configured for AFTERHOURS. Just tellthe person who answers that you are a patient of the doctor... Hopefully the office can get this fixed soon.
