Had a referral for my young son and got nothing but the run around from the office staff for over 2 days just to then be told the quota for new patients had been reached that morning even though I had talked to them over 24 hours before and that I just need to get a different referral from his doctor. Thanks for not only making it inconvenient for me but making my already sick child wait over 2 weeks to even get another appointment.

Followed up with Dr. Sheikh each time my son showed difficulty. Failed to listen to concerns I had and symptoms. Another specialist diagnosed my son in the area of Dr. Sheikh specialty.My last visit was due to the office not sending in a pre authorization for medication. I was worn out due to my less than 2 month old being sick and without needed medication. I followed a suggestion by the office manager assuming she is an extension of Dr. Sheikh, then accused of bouncing my son when I was only
I had a very bad experience with Dr. Sheikh. He gave no second option. He just wants to make money he does not care about his patients.
