Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

I received outstanding care from Dr Farooq and I trust him completely! He is a perfectionist which is a great quality for a doctor to have! I am grateful I ended up in his care and I shall continue seeing Dr Farooq after my release from the hospital!

Not helpful in dealing with logistics of treatment. Changes treatment plan abruptly. Overreactive to seriously of issues. Not reassuring to patients.Doesn’t work with patients on a collaborative basis. Doesn’t consider the whole patient, including psychological issues around treatment.

The doctor has no interest in treating a UTI. He laughs a lot and jokes with his staff. Asks me, the patient what I was there for. He had to results of a urine culture and told me that not a problem. His staff sent me to Venice Regional for IV antibiotic but never spoke to me or the staff on the ACU floor.
