"This was my first visit with Dr. Nijmeh. I was referred to him by one of his current patients. Dr. Nijmeh clearly explained his treatment plan for me and paid high compliments to an interventional cardiologist who treated me about 10 years ago. My PCP is not currently a Duly physician. When I asked Dr. Nijmeh's office to forward a copy of my after-visit summary to my PCP, it was done promptly and was followed up with a confirmation message to me. Very nicely done."
