What People Say About Dr. Farooque Dastgir, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

Had a new patient visit with Dr Dastgir today. I was early and expected to wait. The office ran like clockwork and got me in earlier than my scheduled appointment time. The doctor made it easy to talk about an awkward subject. Office staff shuffled me around to different stations, and it all went smooth. I am not used to this kind of efficiency at doctors offices. And this first impression had me impressed.

Doesn't listen. Doesn't care about patients. Extremely conceited and only concerned with the prestige of being a medical doctor.
