Incompetent, uncaring, greedy, unresponsive. I had gone to the emergency room for chest pain multiple times, and following the visit in which I had elevated indicators, Dr. Fahkri told me I needed to have a cardiac cath, it was urgent, & it must be prior to leaving for a mission trip to Thailand 3 weeks later. The office submitted to insurance only one work day prior to the procedure. Insurance denied the procedure at noon on Friday for a Monday procedure due to the office not submitting the correct documentation. The insurance company was willing to approve, however needed the Dr. to call in. Instead of calling, Dr. Fahkri had his worthless PA call in, somebody I have never met and told them not urgent. Either it was urgent or Fahkri is greedy and needed to fill an$18K slot. Front desk told me Fahkri would call me shortly, he NEVER called. I travel every week for work and took my last PTO week off of work, so now I can't do the procedure because I can't be home to do it.

Dr. Fakhri’s office staff were very friendly and professional. Dr.Fakhri made me feel like he really cared and he spent a lot of time with me asking questions and listening. Definitely not your typical Physician. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a really great, young Cardiologist.

I should had wrote my comments a long time ago,Being that I had already had a Quadruple bypass heart surgery in another state. I feel I'm alive today thanks to Dr.Fakhri who never gave up on me thou test after test would show nothing wrong. Dr. Fakhri always took the time to listen to my complains & at times was puzzled. I so thankful that he listened & on two to 3 different occasions was able to place stents &repair collapse arteries. I highly recommend Dr. Fakhri. A caring Dr.
