My policy is to not recommend anything or anyone to anybody. Has not gone well a few times. However, what I will is if anyone asks who I use I will tell them and if I am happy I will tell them also.

*Dr. Saleem has a marked accent and wearing a mask makes it VERY difficult to understand anything he says - hoe we got info accurately.

Doctor took the time to read my chart, ask pertinent questions, listen to me and then provide a course of action. Excellent meeting.

I met Dr. Saleem for the first time at this appointment, having been a patient of now-retired Dr. Aithal. I was very pleased with the time he took to talk with me and with the courtesy and kindness with which he treated me.

Felt very rushed by Dr. He failed to review my blood work and had do leave as he had not reviewed the results of a test I had taken that morning a half hour prior to seeing him

My appt was for 11:15. I wasn't taken into a room until 11:50. At this point I knew I had another appt @ 1:00 in East Hampton, never expecting my 11:15 appt to be so late when I told the dr. I had another appointment, he rushed me through and I felt wasn't being given the attention I needed.
