    The doctor we see on the 22nd of March is very polite, very friendly and it's pleasure to talk to her and very helpful.

    Dr. Al Uzri is the most kind and compassionate doctor that my son has ever dealt with and he absolutely loves her which of course makes me happy because since he has been seeing Dr. Since he was born many of them have scared him and made him. Quite literally be afraid of anybody in the lab coat and she never was like that. She always was comforting to him and I just really value people taking good care of my son because that's what I'm paying them to do. So, I love Dr. Al Uzri and we are very thankful to God that she is in our life.

    Dr. Al-Uzri has been my daughter?s nephrologist for 11 years, since she was a newborn. We would have switched hospitals long ago if it wasn?t for her. She saved my daughter?s life. She is extremely smart, kind, patient, and has the best bedside manner I have ever experienced.
