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.

SHC Patient, Sep 2014

Everyone was very helpful & very personable, listened well. Dr. Jaradeh is great & his nurse Cynthia is very good as well.

SHC Patient, Aug 2014

Dr. Jaradeh is very compassionate, puts one at ease, listens attentively and I feel as though he gave me my life back.

SHC Patient, Aug 2014

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

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!

Dr. Jaradeh is by far the most informed smart, thorough and kind doctor I have met as I have tried to work out my medical issues. He is amazing!

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.

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