I usually only go to a provider for routine check-ups. My UTMB primary care physician moved to Dallas so I just used who was available for my annual physical. I was VERY pleased with Dr. Islam's demeanor, care in asking questions about my general health, sense of interest in me, good social skills, etc. I took an immediate liking to him both personally and in the sense that I trust I am getting good advice from him. I will definitely want to keep him as my primary care physician based on this first appointment with him.Feb 20,2017
