Well,Dr.Hanif seems to be getting a bad rap on here...I really like her as my rheumatologist. I go in every 3 months;get my blood draws,a quick exam,a quick Q&A with the Doc.,some recommendations- and I'm out of there! I get a follow up call either from the nurse or the Doctor 1-2 days later with recommendations for adjustments(if any) to my meds,easy. What do people want? The doctor is efficient,competent,there's never a wait. Dr Hanif is NOT going to give you pity.

Very rude, poor bed side manors. With years of documentation and being treated previously for psoriatic arthritis she felt there was "nothing" wrong with me. As if it weren't difficult enough dealing with the Dr who had been treating me stoping practice all together, to have someone treat you poorly!

Found out more from Dr. Ha if in 10 minutes about my condition than over the last 20 years . Highly recommend.
Granville, OH |
I was shocked by the poor care I received here. Dr. Hanif performed a very rushed history and eval. I was out of there within 15 minutes and sent back to my family doctor. She did not work to find new solutions. In fact, she did absolutely nothing! I'm just writing to warn you all that she's easy to schedule with for a reason--and not a good one.

The first visit she said to me, "you have too many symptoms, go back to your family Dr." You know that referred me to her because of positive ANA. Completely incompetent or she just likes seeing people suffer.

This doctor is a joke. Not only were my symptoms ignored, the nurses in the office were totally unable to draw a blood sample. After 4 attempts I had to put a stop to the fiasco. I would not recommend this doctor to anyone.
in Heath ohio |
The most horrible experience of my life 28th a doctor. Don't go to her no matter what.she barely talks to you and examines you less. Blows you off. I'm 53 yrs old and have seen alot of doctors so please for your sake don't go to her. I've been diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis and fibromyalgia for 20 yrs and lupus for 7 yrs. Yet she spent 3 minutes with me and said nothing wrong with me , even though 3 other rheumatologist have diagnosed me with these conditions!

The doctor listens to you & treats you with professionalism. Excellent treatment
