The doctor told me 4x to take Metamucil & Colace when I told him that I had tried it for 6 months with no results. He didn't listen me. It was a waste of my time.

5 out of 5 stars

Very professional and competent surgeon who is very patient focused and goes beyond call of duty. Dr. Inam sense of commitment, exemplary ethics and excellent communication skills sets him apart from most of his pears. In the truest sense, in my opinion I see him not just an excellent surgeon but also kind and caring doctor with a temperament more of a patent advocate who always keeps the best interest of the patient first and foremost. A caring person of impeccable integrity. His remarkable bedside manner with acute sense of patents need and suffering sets Dr Inam apart. He is an asset to the community I would recommend him without any hesitation and reservation.
