Doesnt listen and dismisses symptoms. Not helpful and never explains options.
in Nashville, TN |
Razzaq was awful. He didn't listen to me, talked over me. Was very set on looking for Lupus. When I didn't test positive but didn't test negative for it, he was done looking for anything.I went blind in one eye, have positive anas and elevated inlamation. Was there on the rec of my PC + Retina md. He told me my referring doc didn't know what he was talking about & that he couldn't just go chasing a diagnosis for me bc I'd lost my vision. I will NEVER go back to him.
He was pleasant. I did not do much talking at first and let him tell me what the plan was. After that I asked my questions and he reassured me he would find out what going on. I found him to be a very good doctor.
