This office is only open 2 1/2 days per week. Impossible to get a hold of them. For a simple routine pap I had to come back twice, because Dr. Farag couldn't do it right the first time. And I got charged $330 for each visit, total $660 for routine pap smear! The whole time she was trying to sell her cosmetic services. I would not recommend this doctor.

I called to make an appt with Dr. Farag because she came highly recommended. I called on Oct. 12 & her first opening wasn't until JANUARY. I was willing to wait, but the receptionist that was taking my information was EXTREMELY rude & curt. She asked me to repeat information over & over & got my information wrong. When confronted about her rudeness & how she is representing Dr. Farag poorly, she did not seem to care in the slightest. I will definitely NOT be waiting to be treated so rudely

I'm completely impressed with Dr. Farag. She has an extremely well run office. My appointment started on time, staff was friendly and efficient. Dr. Farag meets with you before the exam and you have a thorough discussion of your health. She is professional, intelligent, and and engages with you in a professional manner while still being friendly. I wish all doctors were of the caliber of her. She is a rare dr. to find and I'm very happy that she is my doctor. Additionally they have skin care se

Dr. Farag saved my life. I trust Dr.Farag will all my gynecological needs. She worked on an ablation but I needed an emergency hysterectomy. She is truly caring and I continue to see her for my well woman exams.
