I saw Dr. Rafiq after a year, and he didnt ask why I came back after so long or why I stopped coming. Instead his receptionist asked me questions which felt more like an interrogation by phone. Once I had question's for him about disability, he quickly told me he does not have time to write letters or anything of the sort. He also based his own judgement which felt personal and not professional about how severe my anxiety is. He did not show interested trying to help me.

We've been with Dr. Rafiq for almost 2 years. He does tend to medicate heavy handed, however he spends the time to talk with me and my child and whomever else I bring to the appointments with me. His administrator is very quick to respond to phone messages and emails. Dr. Rafiq also helped us by writing a note for me to take to the school for an IEP meeting. The note was instrumental in getting what my son needed at school.

Dr. Rafiq is not interested in working together as a team. He is more of an authoritarian doctor vs one who takes a collaborative approach. Medications and therapeutic approaches are not really recommendations he is not open to disagreements. After my visit in Dec. 2016 I left distraught a few wks later he sent me a letter telling me that he could no longer see me. A phone call would have been a lot more professional and safer, I was seeing him for chronic depression.

If I could give him a 0 Star, I would. The last review was exactly right. He believes in heavy medication(quick fix) and could care less about the long term effects. I strictly, told him, several times, NOT too heavily medicate my young child, to start off small and then we will go from there. That went in 1 ear and out the other. Maybe he is getting money by these drug reps for pushing the medicine, I don't know, but this man is in the wrong profession!

Can't call him "Doctor". Mohammad Rafiq treats people without informed consent and uses heavy medication without accurate diagnosis. I wish I would have money to sue him.
