Dr. Farooq is very competent, thorough, listens, and provides full explanations. He goes out of his way to answer any questions I've ever had. I have the utmost confidence in his expertise, and he is always professional and friendly. Probably the best doctor I've ever had. I have been seeing him for about 3-1/2 years now.

Love Dr Farooq! I hate going to the Dr's, my pcp can barely get me in for yearly checkups, but when I became sick, Dr Farooq was fantastic. He is very easy to talk with, he makes sure you understand everything he is going over with you and speaks with you, not at you or down to you. You can tell by the way he interacts with his staff that he treats everyone with respect and in turn is respected by them.

I friend of mine is a Cardiologist, who I trust, and he recommended Dr Farooq. Dr Farooq has a very friendly demeanor right off the bat, he listened to my complaint and allowed me to fully finish my explanation, and he clearly explained his thoughts and the plan of action in a very logical way that inferred sound judgement. Plainly put this guy is good, and shows no signs of arrogance or condescension.
