I went to Dr Ashraf years ago because a friend recommended her. I went because I had arthritis. She is a women of few words and does not inform well of diagnosis. She told me I have fibromyalgia and put me on cymbalta without any infirmation about the medication. If you don't ask, she won't tell. I do not recommend her simply because she does not inform well.

Totally palmed off my concerns, made out I was lying, and as a result missed a dangerous life threatening diagnosis. I suffered for another two years before travelling to Boston for a diagnosis.
