Patient Comments (3)
Brooklyn, NY |
Had my father visit him for the first time today. They are suspecting lymphoma but they still are not sure. Terrible bedside manner. Did not respond to questions respectfully; was very nasty. Also, when first disclosing the possibility of cancer to my father, he came out bluntly instead of showing some compassion.

Wait is always long and office is SO FILTHY. I was on a controlled substance which required I go into his office and pick up a paper prescription from the front desk. He continued to charge me for an office visit each time, which is ridiculous and fraud. Patients can't be charged an office visit for a 1 minute visit to the front dest to pick up a prescription in person when they legally have no other option. I'm sure he's been doing this to the older patients and taking advantage of people. NO.

Dr. Rafiaa and his staff are AMAZING! I've been seeing him for over a year now, and he has helped me face my fight against colon cancer by keeping me positive and hopeful. Highly recommend him and his staff. They're a great team!
