    Dr. Reema is not only a concerned physician, but also a cheerleader. She was so happy about my recent scans -her positivity is contagious! I felt ready to take the next steps in my journey and I know I'm in great hands. I really feel like I'm getting the same amount of care as she would give her own family.

      Appointment did not start until over an hour late. Someone came in the room 10 minutes into the wait and said she would be right with me. No one ever came back to say it would be longer or why there was a delay. Someone should have.
