Verified Patient Reviews
Dr. Hakeem is such a great doctor. I always stuck to women gynecologists, but I decided to try a male gynecologist . That’s when Dr. Hakeem showed up on my Zocdoc. I’m so glad he appeared on it, because he’s by far the best gynecologist I’ve gone to. He is a good listener and makes you feel really comfortable. He asks the right questions and attends to your needs. I definitely recommend him.
Dr.Hakeem was very nice and informative. He had a delivery during my appointment but still made it by to greet me. The midwife there was also friendly, sweet, and very informative. The only issue was the receptionist. Upon arrival she was very cold, didn’t smile, and almost looked like she hated her job. I went to the wrong window to do my next appointment she just sat there holding the card out in the next window until I approached, no ‘hey this is the window over here’ or anything. I smiled at her, laughed to ease the tension, and said thank you have a nice day. Nothing from her. Not even a bye or here’s the exit. Had to find the exit while she slammed the window shut and walked away.
Even though I didn't have an appointment and they were very busy they were able to get me in for abdominal pain same day! The Dr was very polite and listened to all my concerns! I even have a surgery scheduled with him in 2 days now to resolve this issue once and for all!!!!!
He actually listened to my problems. I was able to give him a complete run down of what my issues were and we came up with a solution. Definitely recommended
I would highly recommend Dr.Houmam Al Hakeem and his staff.
Everone was nice he gave me lots of infomation on my problem and the midwife was wonderful also
He was very profrssional and gave off a kind aura; it was definetly a quicker process than in the waiting room.
I was with my previous obgyn since I was 16 (I am now 20) so I didnt want to change doctors, but recently she seemed less concerned about things I am highly concerned about and so I came to Dr. Hakeem and he releived me of all concens and now is doing what I wanted my previous doctor to do.
Love how down to earth the staff is and Dr. Is AWESOME!!
I always enjoy my visits to Dr Hakeem. Girls and midwives are all heartwarming and really care for there patients
I love the staff, the midwives are awesome! Dr Al hakeem is the BEST! Family like vibes, comfortable setting!
It would be nice if they would take the trash out in the restroom and made the restroom look nice. Also, the people in the waiting room made the office look ghetto for a first timer. That's the reason why i switched doctors in the first place. Over all he is great just don't like the waiting area.
Wanted my iud out. He said he couldn't find it after I waited over 2 hours for them to call me in when it was only 2 people ahead of me. Then he said I needed my IUD surgically removed after only looking for 1 minute. I went home and felt my IUD string, so I pulled it out myself.
Everyone in the clinic was very professional. The midwife was very very helpful with all my questions. Dr. Al Hakeem was very nice and informative with everything. I highly recommend this Doctors office to anyone looking for a great expierence with very friendly clinical staff.
They were able to fit me in immediately. It was the best experience I have ever had in any kind of medical office. They make you feel like family the minute you walk through the door. Even being a first time patient.....it was quick, thorough and not uncomfortable.
My first time visit was great. I felt so comfortable and I felt like I could discuss anything with the midwife who examined me.
I love this doctors its the best group i ever meat. I already have 3 babys and every baby had a diferent doctor and this has been my best expierence right now.I feel like home and every person in there are great love this doctor i would recomend every single mom..
Was charged more then I was supposed to be paying!
Everyone was very sweet and positive. It was my first appt, originally scheduled for 1040. The receptionist was nice enough to call me and ask me to come in at 9 so that my paperwork and profile would be done by my appt time.
It was excellent the staff is very respectful and polite
Dr. Al Hakeem and his office staff were very friendly. Immediately after signing up I was contacted to confirm my appointment. They kept in contact and were very professional and comforting. Annual visits aren't my favorite but I was very comfortable with Dr. Al Hakeem and his midwife and office staff.
he is an awesome doctor
He is a great doctor. If he wasnt goin to tie my tubes id have another bby jus so he could be my dr again.
I love Dr. Hakeem and his staff!!!! I was so comfortable right away and immediately made a strong with relationship with the mid-wife that he has on his staff, sorry i cant remember her name. I highly recommend Dr. Al Hakeem! the only reason that he is not my doctor anymore is because I had to move back to Houston.
Talked mostly to a midwife who was wonderful. There was about an hour of paperwork before I was seen, but after that it was all very fast. Everyone in the office is very friendly and professional.
He's a very amazing doctor. I will continue seeing him.
The staff is very friendly and make you feel comfortable. The doctor is great he actually listens and is willing to find the problem and solution. The wait time is alot shorter then any other office ive been to . I enjoyed it .
He was great, kind and helpful
Although the wait was a bit lengthy I would recommend him to anyone.He is professional and also the staff everyone is just so warm and friendly. He is simply the best I have come across so far.
This is my first pregnancy and everyone was very nice and welcoming. Dr. Hakeem was really nice and answered all of my and my sister's questions. The midwives were very kind and helpful about things I should and shouldn't do. The staff was very friendly and inclusive. I would seriously recommend that you come see him!
I wasn't impressed with the staff. I arrived before my appointment time to fill out paperwork but didn't get the paperwork until after my scheduled time. It was on a super slow computer and took forever. I was then put in a waiting room for a long time and the mid wife did my examination. The doctor came in for less than 3 minutes to just talk. I had to call twice to get my results and the second time the nurse gave me my results and didn't seem to know much. I also needed a referral for a mammogram and it needed to be diagnostic rather than a screening and they were reluctant to listen to the imaging center to get it changed. I will probably find a different Doctor. They seemed to over book for what they were able to handle and my appointment should have been the first of the morning.
Awsome doctor! Would recommend to anyone and everyone!
This was my second try at a OBGYN. The first one I dislike so I went in as a New Patient to Dr Houmam Al Hakeem and was the best thing I could have done. I am very happy with my decision to switch. He actually listen to me as I tried to tell him what was going on. Did not rush me. He explain step by step what he was going to do. Came in for abdominal pain due to cysts in my ovaries and cervix. Place is clean and up to date. Staff was nice. My other OBGYN rushed me and didn't want to listen what I had to say. I recommend Dr. Houmam Al Hakeem!
This was my first time visiting the office and I have to stay it is clean and organized and the staff is amazing and Dr.Hakeem is great and as is his assistant. I would definitely recommend the office to friends and family. And I will definitely be returning.
I was so nervous at first but once I saw and talk to the doctor and his assistant I was so comfortable the assistant was really carefully and it made me feel home the ladies in the front desk were so nice and professional ...had a great visit...im sure I'll be visiting next checkup
This is my first pregnancy and he made me feel so comfortable before I knew it the papsmear was done and I had the first sonogram of my baby. He answered all my questions he was patient and very understanding of my concerns. I would highly recommend him.
The front office staff was amazing, being from out of town i was running over and hour and a half late, and was having trouble finding the location, and they treated me extremely well. The Dr was so patient with me, asked me questions and was very informative. I am expecting my second child, and i can honestly say that i got treated so much better there in one visit than i had at all the visits with my first child's doctor.
He was kind and friendly. Made me feel very comfortable
I was really happy with the staff very kind n helpful the doctor also very kind and understanding ,am very happy I chose sr.All Hakeem very happy thank you. :)
Him and his staff were incredible and so personal! They made me feel so comfortable! They even knew their patients name!
Dr. Hakeem was great he was able to answer all my questions. From the moment I walked in the nurses were nice and welcoming. I recommend Dr. Hakeem to anyone who is looking for an OBGYN.
Dr. Hakeem was excellent. I was a new patient and even after filling out the new patient paperwork, I waited less than 20 minutes to be seen. The front office staff is wonderful. Dr. Hakeem made me feel comfortable, even as a new patient. He addressed all of my concerns and I didn't feel he was rushing through my appointment as some doctors do. I highly recommend this doctor if you are looking to change gynecologists or are new to the San Antonio area.
He told me want i need to know
I loved every minute of my visit. From the nurse who took my vitals all the way to the person drawing my blood. Everyone was super friendly and welcoming. So excited to have him as my OB doc
I am a new patient here and although I was a little in doubt of proceeding the appointment due to how small the office was and due to how aged it looked as well the staff here treated me as family. Also Dr. Al - Hakeem has been so far the best physician I have yet to encounter. He really made me feel comfortable and allowed me to tell me story. In doing so I feel that he really made a connection with me allowing both of us to feel comfortable and easy to do business with. I highly recommend him and his staff. The front desk receptionist was very easy going and extremely friendly and the Nurse that handled me before I met the doctor really set an example for the clinic. Most definitely going back. I also switched to him for my primary doctor as well. Finally a place I can feel comfortable talking to the staff.
I would defiantly recommend Dr. Hakeem. He was so kind and understanding. I was scared to get my iud out but he made me feel comfortable and before I knew it I was done!
Great doctor very considerate and friendly!!!
Loved Dr.Al-Hakeem,I really appreciate him actually sitting down and answering your questions :-) I never feel rushed..will definitely recommend to others!!
So far a good experience, I like him, very informative, patience and thorough
Very awesome doctor
Dr Al-Hakeem is hands-down the best OB-GYN I've ever had. Would recommend him to anyone. Outstanding bedside manner.
First, I would like to start off saying I did like Dr. Al Hakeem a lot. In fact, I was excited that I found an OB I was comfortable with. The issue came with the staff. I needed an IUD inserted. I had the initial consultation then called 3 weeks later to make the appointment for the insertion. I talked directly to the doctor and made the appointment. I showed up to the appointment and the office ladies told me he had just left. They had no idea I would be there! I could understand that happening, however that wasn't the end. I asked if I could come in the next day. But, they didn't even order the paraguard yet!! There is some form I needed to fill out in order for them to get it, and I was never told about it. No one got in contact with me or told me while I was in the office. I asked them how long it would take for them to order it if I signed the paper today. They told me I would have to come back next month during my cycle to get it inserted because by the time they ordered it would be too late in the month. The reason for the paraguard is because I can not take hormonal birth control. I explained that to the nurses but they still offered to give me a depo shot! I told them that would not work, and asked for Plan B to hold me over in case it is needed. The nurse responded that it was hormonal and wouldn't work. I had to explain to the nurse how Plan B worked. I was very very concerned that the nursing staff didn't understand the way birth control worked. I am saddened that this issue was handled in such an unprofessional manner. I had to leave work early, pick my daughter up early, and drive across town to the appointment all for no reason. Suffice it to say, as much as I like Dr. Al Hakeem, I will not waste my time and money at a place that mismanages simple tasks.
Doctor was awesome!!!
Not happy with the visit
