Dr. Fakhuri has been my elderly grandmother's primary physician for the past 5 years. He is generous with his time and energy, patient beyond expectations and more empathetic than any doctor I've known. Dr. Fakhuri has made house calls to see my grandmother when her arthritis or the winter weather made it nearly impossible for me to get her out of the house and to his office. When she fell and broke her wrist in her home, he came that very night and had ordered a portable x-ray technician to see her by the next morning. My grandma has dementia and Dr. Fakhuri has worked very closely with me and her psychiatrist to find just the right medications. Sadly, last year my grandmother had to enter a nursing home, but Dr. Fakhuri is on the staff there and continues to see her regularly. He has never once failed to pick up his phone or return my call despite being popular and having many, many patients. When discussing my grandma's care he will often say "if it were my grandma" and he really MEANS it. That may not matter to everyone, but it does to me because I want to be as involved as I can in doing what is best for my grandma, especially now that she is unable to make decisions for herself. In any case, I recommend him without hesitation and feel confident that his skills extend to people of all ages.
