"Truly cares."

He always comes in with a smile and a handshake. He listens! Truly cares. And always follows up. I am proud to call him my Dr.!

Dr. Hubaykah is WONDERFUL!! He always takes as much time with me as needed during appointments. He's even come to the hospital early in the morning when I was having an issue. He listens fully to what I say and has a kind and loving nature. I wouldn't trade him for any other doctor!!!
