I would like to just say that Dr. Soliman is a gift to your hospital. I have been through a lot of medical procedures in my lifetime worked with many doctors and nurses. Dr. Soliman has been extremely professional, considerate and kind and just recently did an amazing job on a procedure on my throat. I can't thank him enough! His staff has been equally excellent as well!
