Dr. Khalouf has treated my wife and I with great success for over 25 years. Dr. Khalouf & his staff are always friendly, informative, and honest. We were always treated with respect. The doctor, his P.A., and the nursing staff always take their time with me, explaining my X-rays, answering my questions in terms I understand until I am comfortable with my treatment. I highly recommend Dr. Khalouf and his UOC team for any pain you might have.
