SHC Patient, Aug 2015

Dr. Jaradeh is THE BEST!

SHC Patient, Aug 2015

It is clear that Dr. Jaradeh is extremely knowledgeable and an excellent diagnostician. He is also very personable and interesting. He did a very thorough review of my chart, which is much appreciated. However, he did not read my intake paperwork, which I did not realize until halfway through the appointment, and I couldn't seem to get his attention to the primary concern for which I had made the appointment. I'm still not sure if this concern has been evaluated. Other useful things were discussed. Tests were ordered. However, I am unclear if there will be follow up or treatment for the items we did discuss.

SHC Patient, Jul 2015

Willing to have highly technical discussions.

SHC Patient, Jul 2015

He explained things very well; I'm an RN so he spoke with me in terms that were very helpful to me with my medical knowledge.

SHC Patient, Jun 2015

he's very smart / experienced

SHC Patient, Jun 2015

The doctor does not speak down to me the way some do, and he talks to me about the treatment alternatives so that I can also make informed decisions and understand my treatment. He also does not order unnecessary tests.

SHC Patient, May 2015

Excellent doctor was very pleased with consult.

SHC Patient, Apr 2015

I love Dr. Jaradeh. He has such a beautiful spirit. He explains my health situation to where I can understand.

SHC Patient, Mar 2015

I was very impressed with Dr. Jaradeh, still waiting for tests ordered to be forwarded & authorized so I can have them done.

SHC Patient, Dec 2014

This doctor is the best! He saved my life. He stays in full contact. His PA is fantastic!

SHC Patient, Dec 2014

Excellent doctor!

SHC Patient, Oct 2014

We arrived on time for the appt, and were seen in 10 minutes. Dr. Jaradeh spent ample time going over my history & current condition. Moreover, Dr. Jaradeh and technician (Lori) were excellent at answering questions about my condition, and related test results.

I was unclear about my medication until letter to my primary care doctor appeared on MyHealth.

SHC Patient, Jul 2014

Dr. Jaradeh is the best! He always looks at the record to check what all the other doctors are doing as my case is very complicated. I wish I could find a primary care doctor who is as good as Dr. Jaradeh!

SHC Patient, May 2014

Dr. Jaradeh took the time to explain everything & is one of the few providers who was able to piece my difficult case together. Highly recommended.

SHC Patient, Jan 2014

All good, he was down to earth and spoke so we could understand.

SHC Patient, Jan 2014

1st visit, but very encouraging.
