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 knows what he is talking about. He took the time to listen, did not rush me and was incredibly patient with my husband and my questions. I am so grateful for his attention to detail and would recommend Dr. Hakim to any of my friends and family!” Cheryl S.
“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. He got me in for surgery the same afternoon as my appointment. His staff was wonderful and I will continue to see and refer him to everyone I know.” Robert K.
