What People Say About Dr. Farah Hameed, MD

I can not begin to say enough positive things about Dr. Hameed. When I came to see Dr. Hameed I was in a great deal of pain. I had intense pain in my shoulder and arm that wouldn't go away. The pain was unbearable and prevented me from making it through a day. Dr. Hameed took the time to listen to me, get to the bottom of what was going on and helped me manage my pain. I felt like she really cared. In addition, she was always available and would respond to my emails quickly and with helpful info

Dr. Hameed had incredible patience and insight in working through a stubborn back issue. I really appreciated her mix of western medicine, with some alternative ideas that turned out to be extremely helpful to me. She thought out of the box. And, took time to listen to me and understood my goals - getting back to a fairly high level of physical activity.

Dr. Hameed was great. She spent a great deal of time with me and listened to all my concerns and helped me lessen the pain on my knee. She really cares about the patients like Dr. Bevelaqua (who I reviewed earlier) Luz at the front desk is always so helpful and extremely friendly, I really appreciate her kindness. Brangy the MA is always really nice and just makes you feel really comfortable. Tawana is always nice and professional and Johaira who I just met is also very kind.

I just read the reviews for Dr. Hameed, and saw two reviews that said Dr. Hameed was condescending, and I just do not understand how that happened. I found Dr. Hameed to be one of the most courteous and approachable doctors I have encountered. She took her time and answered all my questions and I did not feel rushed at all. I also was happy with her diagnosis and treatment. Her staff was also pleasant and professional. My wait time was under 5 minutes. I highly recommend her.

Worst experience EVER!! This doctor has the worst attitude and spoke in such condescending tone to me. She acted as if she didn't want to touch me when "attempting" to give me an exam. She should not be working with the public with such poor bedside manner and lack of compassion. I can't believe these are the types of doctors Columbia is hiring.

The doctor was very condescending in her tone with me. She seemed as if she was agitated that I was being seen towards the end of her day and I felt like the exam was rushed. Definitely will not be going back.

She quickly diagnosed the source of my extreme shoulder pain and directed the physical therapy steps to recovery. Very clear in her explanations, thorough in her exam, and pleasant in her manner.

I have seen Dr Hameed several times over the past two years for two different problems. I have absolute confidence in her clinical knowledge and skills. I have recommended her to three family members . They also have had excellent experiences.

Dr. Hameed is wonderful. She is extremely kind, intelligent, and patient and will take the time to hear about your medical issue, explain to you what the issue is and make a plan to help you get better. I have been seeing her for over 2 years since I had back surgery and she helped to coordinate my care with other providers and a PT person and prescribed any medications I needed. She also is always available by email, so if I ever have a flareup or any questions I can always contact her.
