ratings and reviews
Awesome physician! Highly recommended!
We had a wonderful experience And left feeling confident that our child’s health was well looked after.
Dr Abdurrhaman is wonderful. Spends so much time with us listening to my daughters stories and telling my daughter some of her own making us completely comfortable. Doc eases my mind telling me exactly what Is going on and when we needed to come back. I have complete confidence in her.
