    Dr Alsharif is a beyond exceptional provider. He is thorough and well knowledgeable while also being kind and approachable. He Is exactly what any patient would hope to have as a primary care physician. I work in healthcare and interact with multiple providers on a daily basis and Dr Alsharif is one of the most extraordinary physicians I've ever met and I consider myself lucky to be his patient. I recommend him, as well as his practice, to anyone in need of a primary care provider and will continue to. He is a true asset to the organization. I believe if more physicians practiced similarly to the standards of Dr Alsharif there would be significantly less acute illness present in the community.

    When Dr. Alsharif took over Dr. Hutchins practice, I was very nervous and upset. I loved Dr. Hutchins he was great! I decided to give Dr. Alsharif a chance and he has impressed me with his care, and understanding and truly listens to me with the kind of empathy and professionalism that all clinical practitioners should possess. I feel valued, heard, and safe.
