in Sacramento, CA |
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.

Excellent in every aspect. ! Compassionate , kind , , attentive , very thorough. And smart doctor. Her staff are getting better which is her only challenge. But I would never change her for any other doctor.
in Stockton, CA |
Slow and rude
Sacramento, CA |
All of the posts on here about how awful their experience was - ditto to all they said. And this was our first appointment. Forget her! Absolutely rude.
Sacramento, CA |
Very rude. Treats her sacramento patients like trash. Never shows up on time. Has them wait up to 7hrs to see her. Cussing at patients and is very pushy. All these others leaving positive comments have to be fake or friends or relatives. She is nothing like these reviews

Excellent doctor. Cares for her patient
Sacramento |
I don't even want to give her a star. As a health care professional, I find her service so poor and unprofessional. We were scheduled to see her at her office in Elk Grove. She came in late. Her patients were already complaining that she is always late and rude when they address this situation. One patient was complaining that she changes her rates without notifying her patients. It was just a disaster in a beautiful office.

She's very concern in whats wrong with you not like most doctors just try to give you medicine and go
in Nevada City, CA |
Always late by about 3-4 hours. Charged my Medicare for service's not rendered. Made appointments for me when the office was closed. Would refill prescription only when felt like it. Waited 3 months for a refill and when she did it was written out wrong and the pharmacy would turn it down.

Aweful care. Wait times with a appointment are 3-4 hours if not longer. The Dr does not even seem to care.

Dr Sheikh is very thorough. I've been treated by her for the past two years. I'm totally satisfied with her and her staff. I have no problem waiting for her care. Any wait time is worth the Care.
in Galt, CA |
It wouldn't be just one experience...it would be 17 years worth of experiences! Dr. Sheikh is a very hard working, pleasant, and knowledgeable Doctor. She has been, and continues to be, the VERY BEST in treating my particular health care needs regularly. I highly respect her and have had the pleasure of getting to know her over the last many years. It is nice to have a Doctor that makes me feel genuinely cared about and personally watched after. Her staff makes me feel like I am family!
