Patients That Inspire
“Dr. Hakim answers all of your questions thoroughly and in a manner a layman can understand. He has a terrific bedside manner and a great sense of humor. He was willing to take on a difficult situation that other surgeons would not and for that I am forever thankful.” Susan B.

“Dr. Hakim is the kindest and most understanding doctor I have ever come into contact with. He repaired my broken wrist one year and my left wrist the next.
