    I have always been impressed and gratified by Dr. Alhumaid's willingness to listen to my concerns and his ability to explain my condition. He provides clear and concise explanations of all options and takes care to involve me in all decisions regarding treatment. He seems to have a knack for assessing his patient's level of knowledge about their situation and thus avoiding talking down to them or talking above their heads. I recommend him most highly.
