Great customer service by all staff, unlike other places I have tried. Welcoming and don’t make you feel like you are part of a cattle call. Knowledgeable staff and expert professionals. I previously went to an “institute” that took their patients for granted. I’m happy I made this move.

Fantastic office, staff and experience. Dr. Nsouli's staff was warm, thorough and professional. I felt like things were moving the entire time I was in the office. Everyone is very clear about what they're doing and why without being condescending.Yesterday I received a call to check in and make sure I was doing ok. I've never had a doctor's office be so thorough. I'm impressed.

Dr. Nsouli is the most efficient and knowledgeable allergist. No wonder many people have recommended him. He also has the best bedside manner. His team tested my allergens and treated me in far less time than any other allergy clinic I have been in my life.

He wrote an adult epipen prescription for my 1 year old. I discovered the mistake by googling. When I spoke to him on the phone about the matter, he denied he would do such a thing. I have the hand writtenbenedryll dosage information on the following prescription pad page. His office administration is also terrible. When I submitted paperwork required by my son's daycare, they literally mailed me the blank forms I had submitted. It took multiple attempts on my part to get properly completed forms.

His office is very busy, and I wasn't called back for about 30 minutes. But I felt very comfortable with Dr. Nsouli and got the feeling he was listening and absorbing what I said. The nurse practitioner working with him wasalso great, as were the nurses and front desk staff. Dr. Nsouli explained everything well and seemed very up-to-date on current research and developments in his field.

I have been to so many physicians in the past 8 months for some difficult to dx, and odd symptoms. Some of the practitioners I have seen made me never want to go back again due to how they treated me!I, an RN for over 20 years, developed a phobia of going to the doctors! What a relief when I met Dr. Nsouli. I could breathe out. He was professional and kind. He listened to me, answered my questions and explained things to me. I absolutely appreciated my appointment with him. Highly recommend.

Dr. Nsouli was so knowledgeable but still took the time to engage with me as a new patient (with a long history of miscellaneous symptoms). I really appreciated how personable he was even with his extensive training (since that is sadlynot always the case) and how he really made a point of connecting with me at a personal level while talking through my initial treatment plan.

i was so impressed with the whole experience. From making the appointment on line, follow up reminders prior to the appointment thur the time I left the office. The office staff is delightfull and efficient. The nurse who did the initalmeeting with me, BP, etc. was wonderful. Dr. Nsouli was such a gentleman, so professional, and I knew he was genuinely interested in my clinical story and explained everything clearly I left with a very clear understanding of my evaluation, and what the plan of care was going to be. Dr. Nsouli and his staff are without a doubt THE BEST!

Iwas really impressed by Dr. Nsouli. He's very attentive, extremely knowledgeable, listens to patient's concerns and addresses all of them without rushing patients like other doctors do. His practice is very busy...we had appointment inbeginning of August and the waiting room in Burke office was full so be prepared to spend some time if quality of care matters to you. Despite all his credentials, Dr. Nsouli is very down to earth and humble person, very warm and approchable personality. I liked his way of interaction with my teenage daughter. He is not a type of doctor who orders a series of unnecessary tests just to pocket money. Instead, he selects and pinpoints only those that truly needed and recommends effective OTC medications. I was really impressed and will definitely be back for my daughter's allergies. Highly recommend! In fact, from the moment we entered the doors of his office, all we experienced is the kindness and warmth of his staff.

It was amazing! Prompt, efficient, knowledgeable. Lovely office and polite staff. For my appointment I was treated as though I WAS THE ONLY PATIENT ON THE PLANET; no rushing, complete explanations and thorough evaluation with a "bedside"manner to die for. All in about an hour !!! But wait ... he takes insurance!!!! Don't know if I want to cry or do the happy dance over my good fortune to find him. I think I will do a bit of both. Since when has a doctors visit made your day??? This made my week. This guy is a grade D diamond, no inclusions. So rare - PRICELESS!!!!
