Patient Reviews:
"Always a great experience with Dr. Lateef."

"Dr. Lateef is very knowledgeable, kind, and professional."

"I really appreciate Dr. Lateef. She showed interest and took the time to talk to my son. She didn't seem like she was rushing to the next patient which I appreciate. Honestly, one of the best doctor visits I've had by far. It was like a conversation with a friend rather than a doctor and patient. I did not feel rushed at all. I would definitely recommend Dr. Lateef!"
