This lady is horrific! The office is disgusting and she over books to the point where people are standing in a line up against the wall due to not enough room and not enough chairs. It's bizarre, the worst part she doesn't even show up till noon or later but hey schedule anyway right? Get ready to wait 3 plus hours to see a miserable woman and miserable shameful medical care. Or more like lack there of, soon I guess she'll be practicing from federal prison. Just look her up.

If you want to be taken for money and time while she plays with her phone, then makes you feel uncomfortable for asking any questions about a diagnosis she's for you. Also wait time is 3 or more hours, she over books and then comes in around noon all disheveled. 8 appointments and she never even addressed the epilepsy, also please do not get injections from her she does them on a dirty desk and throws the needles in a plain waste basket it's disgusting and illegal. She doesn't deserve 1star

Dr. Sheikh is my neurologist Whenever I feel like something is wrong she takes the time to listen and she goes out of her way to find out what is wrong. She will order all the necessary tests and then go over all the results until she finds the problem. I love that the most about her! I would definitely recommend her my to family and friends. She is a world class Doctor.

I only put a star because it is required. This is the worst doctor I have ever been to. She is very unprofessional not just to her staff but to her patients as well. She is in it for the money and will tell you that you need all kinds of injections for things you don't need and overlook the most important health issues. We are looking for a new doctor because my gut instinct told me she was a quack when I first met her. If you value your life or the life of a family member DO NOT GO SEE HER!

Dr Sheikh's office is a mess. Prepare to wait 3 hours before she sees you. She spends most of your appt time yelling at her staff and on the computer. She is rude. People are in the lobby complaining and walking out every time I was there. Worst dr. experience I have ever had. The office staff rarely pick up the phone so to schedule an appointment or cancellation is a problem.
