    How was your appointment with Dr. Elhajjar?

    Jan 17, 2020
    I had my first visit today and found the doctor to be a nice, professional and caring man. I was treated with respect and I will go back to him. The office staff was very kind and interested in my case. I would gladly recommend his office to anyone who needs professional care for essential tremors. I am proactive in my physical and mental health and Dr. Elhajjar was receptive and answered all my questions and we discussed my treatment. I like working with my doctor instead of just being told what to do. This doctor is really quite refreshing.
