Dr Ola was excellent and professional. Unfortunately the office staff was not. They were not prepared and the did not have the Valley Health records pulled from their system for the Dr. What should have been a 15 minute visit took over an hour.

Dr Ziyad Al Ola is highly recommended. He had all the qualities you look for in a doctor. He didn't rush the appointment, he was genuinely concerned with my well-being and health, he asked relevant questions, and was thorough in the examination and follow-up.

My appointment was booked as a follow up instead of yearly physical but Dr Al-Ola was still willing to see me and was pleasant and not rushed. This is about my third year seeing him since my past doctor left thisgroup and I have been very satisfied with his competence and care. The staff the past two years has been very pleasant also.

After signing in, and giving my copay.I was taken to the exam room, and then my vitals were taken. I was told the doctor would "be in to see me in a few minutes". I waited almost an hour for thedoctor, and none of the other staff bothered to come in and explain the long wait. I would have gotten some water and run to the bathroom, but I didn't want to leave the room for fear that he would come in at that moment and then move on to another patient, therefore making me wait longer!

While I was weigh and escorted to my room after 10 minutes from my appointment time, the office was very inefficient as the visit lasted nearly 2.5 hours due the wait time to be seen by various individuals (nurse, doctor, lab tech)

When I was registering, I specifically asked if the doctor was running on schedule, and I was told YES. I was then brought into the exam room very quickly, but then I had to wait 45 minutes for the doctor. Thisis not the first time this has happened at this facility. On the other hand, the staff is very nice and accommodating. And I like the doctor - very professional and understanding!
