Receptionists never answer the phone, forget to do their job to send out referrals and testing sheets. Doctor does not fully explain medications, lies about types of medications, and side effects. Prescribes medications for off label use(for an unlisted condition, not recommended for it.) Prescribes medicine against advice in prescription description (ex: don't give to patients with anemia, patient has anemia)Treats you like you are stupid by talking slowly and using pop culture refences.

Pretends to listen. Does not like patients with complicated cases. Does not communicate with other doctors unless it's to talk poorly of you. Treats women poorly in general attributing health issues to mental health even when blood work and other testing shows differently. NEVER follows through with referrals, Holds prescriptions hostage, does not communicate well with other doctors. My other doctor was offended by lack of care and did tests abbass would not. Found cancer BTW! and a few others..

Bilal in San Jose, Ca – Apr 12, 2017
Probably great for new patients, not if you've already been diagnosed and are looking for a second opinion or a new doctor, he's not the guy.Also I don't know why but he commented that he does not give out pain medication to anyone and I said it's fine I see a pain doctor...so I wasn't asking for anything but I did hear him give Vicodin to the woman he saw before me. So that broke my trust and he felt I was too complicated and should just stay with the doctor I'm not happy with.waste of time
