Dr. El Muayed is very good. He has explained a lot to me. He makes me feel comfortable during the visit. Even if you feel guilty regarding how you feel like you have failed in keeping things under control, you never feel like he is "blaming" you or making you feel guilty. He is very personable and caring. I am glad he is my doctor.

I'm pleased with the care & advice I've received from Dr. El Muayed since I moved to Chicago. I'm especially appreciative that he's encouraged me to learn more about new developments in insulin pumps.
