Dr Saleem is good.

4 out of 5 stars

Doctor rarely looked at me, but always kept his right ear towards me which I found disconcerting at the time. But when I received his written report, it was clear that he had been paying close attention to the many pertinent questions he asked me - so I wonder now if that's his better ear.

5 out of 5 stars

Dr. Saleem agreed with my request to discontinue one disagreeable med in favor of one I had previously taken successfully, though he suggested an increased dosage.

Doctor's Made it difficult for me to understand him. He did speak kind of quickly and I had to ask him to repeat several things.
