Amazing psychiatrist I took my daughter to her for treatment after having seen many psychiatrists who did not give her a proper diagnosis. After seeing doctor Fahim for 5 months my daughter has drastically improved in school, having better grades, I’m not getting complaints from teachers, she’s even making friends! I cannot be more pleased, I’ve never seen a better psychiatrist in my life. I would not have my daughter see anyone else.

I went to Dr. Fahim 2 years ago for 3 months so can't remember med names. She would start multiple meds at once, even the same week as me starting others for other reasons. She was very rude, and discouraged researching myself. After extreme side effects following her prescription, I made an emergency appointment to see her. She said the side effects were from my anxiety and prescribed me double the dose of the same meds. I then stopped her care. I'm afraid for her young children patients.

This practitioner was very condescending, judgmental, confrontational, arrogant, rude and quick to affix diagnostic labels to extended family members she had never assessed. She was also devoid of empathy and unwilling to listen. While I do not question her medical expertise, I’d question anyone’s decision to partner with her as a patient.

Did not listen. Wasted our time. Did not care. Sad excuse for a "doctor." Would NEVER recommend.

Came to her after moving away too far away to stay with my last psych. Told her that my existing regimen of medication was working fine but she diagnosed me completely differently and changed all my meds. She is not understanding of alternative lifestyles. On more than one occasion I've waited over an hour to see her. The receptionist at the Livingston office is incompetent. If you ever have an issue with your prescription, good luck reaching this doctor.

I did not have a positive experience with Dr. Fahim. She does not listen and made comments that were unprofessional and hurtful. I would not recommend her to anyone, especially to adolescents.

She overcharged me and will not return my 500$ . Also they round up your co-pay so they are overcharging you with that as well. They ask to be paid with cash, so that’s a red flag as well.

If I could leave 0 stars, I would. She doesn’t listen to her patients when they say a medication isn’t agreeing with them. Insisted I stay on it and stick it out. Don’t go to her.

Her office and wait times are tough to endure, but she is terrific: smart, caring and intuitive. She gave my daughter a life!

Took my child to ser her couple of times and the experiences seemed good. Our next appointment was cancelled last minute by doctors office and was given another month to wait for appointment. Due to emergency I was unable to keep appointment and rescheduled for another month. I again receive phone call from office telling me doctor is cancelling appointment and there is a $50 fee due to my cancelling appointment. Di not waste your time. Should have listened to other reviews.....terrible! Dont go
