  • 3/30/2018

    *Dr. Mousallem always seems knowledgeable on my son's condition. However, he often asks questions and then doesn't allow me to answer or cuts me off. Can come off as dismissive.

  • 12/19/2017

    Dr. Mousallem has been fantastic each time I have met with him. He is clear in his instructions, listens to my concerns, suggests courses of action. He even went out of his way to get me into Dermatology quicker than scheduling could. Cannot say enough good about him. He's a keeper!
