Dr. Farooki is very good at writing invoices, forcing patients to come in even for medication refills and charging exorbitant fees. She has no interest in truly helping her patients get better. There are FAR better physicians in Bergen County who care for the patient's well being and work in their best interests. She is not one of them.

Dr. Farooki is caring and empathetic. She doesn't rush people out the door, and she will take the time needed to listen. She also tends to look at a whole-health picture (at least a little bit), which is unusual in psychiatrists. This means she looks at nutrition, exercise, and not just medication. However, she does not work with any insurance companies and is pricey. She also has fairly limited office hours, and while she can be reached at other times, it can be tough for non-emergencies.
