Dr. Aleppo gives the best patient care. She is empathetic, positive and intelligent. With the Kennedy under construction, it took me 3 hours to see her. If that doesn’t convince you how amazing I think she is, then I don’t know what would. The are NMH endos in the suburbs and I still see her in the city.

Dr. Aleppo had quite literally saved my life. She came into at a time when I was very sick due to lack of resources, Education, and motivation. She has helped me see this disease differently; she has been kind, caring, and understanding. She has been my cheerleading during the high points, and my wise guide during the difficult lows. I don't know where I'd be without her. She truly cares about me as an individual, and that is rare and precious.
