Dr. Wahid has been so heartbreakingly rude to my family multiple times. He doesn’t pay attention to the changes he makes on his patient’s medications. He rarely remembers what changes he even makes when questioned. He recently caused my grandmother to almost bleed to death internally with his carelessness. When my mother tried to talk to him, he starting making fun of her saying things like, oh so you’re a retired nurse now. Do not put your family through what Dr. Wahid has put our family through. He has zero empathy and no bedside manners.

After many phone calls giving all my particulars of my ID and insurance details, my first appointment was confirmed. At the appointment morning I arrived 30 minutes earlier, for I know at first visit it takes time to fill forms and sing here and there. While anxiously waiting for my turn, to my great surprise, I was told by the billing girl that my valid insurance is not acceptable; yet before I was told by her on the phone being acceptable. I am old, not able to drive, and trying to follow up my needed health care in best way I can; I found that quit annoying. So that morning, I wasted time, money, and a 30 mile round trip. It really did ruin my day. May be Dr. Faial Wahid is great, but I don't think his billing staff is !

Dr. Wahid saved my life over 14 years ago & has coordinated my cardiac care that has enabled me to continue teaching even at the age of 76. I just returned from the Mexican border where I taught immigrant children for 18 months. Upon my arrival last week back in the Collin County TX area I have experienced new heart health challenges. He has cleared time to see me very soon & I am so fortunate to be able to receive care from this kind & loving cardiologist who has saved so many lives in Texas. Thank you for helping so many patients & giving us new opportunities at life. Ronald R. Ross

Give him zero stars beware this man nearly killed my father! My dad was coughing up blood and was in the hospital every week because of swelling in his lower body. He kept on telling us that my father had depression! That’s when we had it with him and went to another cardiologist that told us my dad needs surgery ASAP because his records show that he has an aneurism the whole time. Thank God we switched doctors otherwise that man would of kept lying to us and would of killed my dad

I have been a patient of Dr. Wahid's for more than 15 years now, and think he is one of the best doctor's I've ever used. He always takes the time to explain in as much detail as I need any and all activities or procedures I require. He has assisted in referrals for other doctors I have needed, who have also been excellent. I highly recommend Dr. Wahid...

Dr. Faisal Wahid is one of the two most talented, dedicated and caring physicians I’ve ever known – and I’ve known more than a few, including ones associated with the Cleveland Clinic and Northwestern Hospital.

Dr. Wahid not only possesses the care and concern that makes you feel better as a patient, but also retains the skills and expertise to save your life. He listens well, is proactive, and has the best staff available. I was fortunate to have him as the cardiologist on-call when I had a heart attack and needed immediate medical intervention, saving my life at just over 30 years old. The technicians and support team are top notch.

Dr. Wahid saved my life!!!. The heart attack knocked me down, I collapsed, then excruciated pain, then the voice of Dr. Wahid "it's done, you're OK now". I remember the darkness of the Cat lab and Dr.Wahid's explanation "here was your 100% blockage, you have a stent now, blood is flowing and you're A O.K" My wife and kids love him ever since.and I cannot wait for every appointment, his smile, his hug, and we all laugh when he says " Les, you're A O.K.". Dr.Wahid became part of my family.
