Dr. Ashraf is amazing. He listens and gives great advice. His staff are the best, helpful, and very friendly. The wait time is pretty long, but it's worth it at the end. Once you are inside the room with him, you feel much better. I would recommend him to anyone who needs help.

Good doctor, but the worst secretaries. They don't care, mess up prescription details when sent to pharmacy , even after I call multiple times. They hung up on me twice, put me on hold 10 minutes with no answer, even when mentioned it's an emergency . I needed my prescription before the pharmacy closed. Wait time is 2-3 hours. They are beyond stupid, but I like ashraf.

This quack Doctor who claims to teach by day and see patients by night sounds elegant and competent doesn't it? I find it hard to believe the BETTER BUSINESS BUREAU has not shut this asylum down. A typical 1st generation M. Eastern with the most incompetent 20 something "clueless girls" that basically run the show AND literally calling in your prescriptions which are invariably wrong. This doctor crams in the most HEINOUS drug addicts by the dozens that walk the streets of Brooklyn and Queens.

Wosrt Dr. Never answer the phone. Never check the meds. Gave me wrong doses. Very careless. Make the receptionist calls pharmacy for medicine they never call in all meds or wrong ones.

He is patient and listens to all my concerns during each appointment. He never dismisses my concerns or rushes me through the appointment. He is always professional and kind.
