"I have seen neurologist since I was 14 and I never felt comfortable going back to them because they never had good bedside manners or took the time to develop a treatment plan for me or had any confidence in my treatment but el sherif was extremely positive and confident about my outcome or at least options for treatments we could explore as well as being extremely kind/respectful/patient & understanding and being utterly determined to help me achieve a positive patient outcome during acute stages of my illness or at least improvements towards a better state in my chronic conditions. He should be a role model for your doctors to strive to be like because I've yet to meet another doctor as skilled; knowledagble & just awesome as him."
