I wish all doctors listened as well as Dr Saima Athar.

I gave her a 9 because no one is perfect but she was absolutely great. There is always room for improvement but my only concern is that the first appointment set up and then I get a call she is going on vacation. Unless family emergency they should know that up front. I know things come up out of their control but if it was just a spur of the moment or was thinking then they should not have made the first appointment in Oct. and then I had to end up waiting until Nov. 6, because they called back later and said she was going to be on vacation.
