“Dr Arif was my mentor through the brief spell I had with Neuropedia as an observer. He has such immense knowledge on how to handle various patients and always tries to personalize management in a way that is accessible to everybody. It was incredible how he was able to take out the time to answer my questions, and teach me different topics whilst also being so thorough with every patient that walked into his room. He was always very patient and understanding with patients who seemed to be in distress and made sure they walked out of the room feeling safe and informed after the consultation. He is so inspiring and had taught me skills that I will carry throughout my life. “

Dr Arif has been an excellent colleague from whom to ask for help for my patients who need neurological opinions. He is always very efficient, thorough, kind to the families and he makes sure he communicates with me so I am up to speed with his findings and recommendations. He has a superb team available which he co-founded, and I am very fortunate to have such a colleague available in Dubai.
