Dr. About-Fayssal first is never in time. When you go in the room she lets you wait 1 hour. She can be any doctor but not neurologist doctor. Very horrible experience and not tearing my mom with nothing, that how much she knew about neurological problem. Please be careful I open my eyes and move to different doctor and my mom is doing much much better and getting treatment.

Still waiting for something to be faxed for medication approval. Saw doctor over two weeks ago and still has not faxed. Office staff says doctor is only one that can fax it. I have never heard anything so ridiculous. Doctor is only in this particular office once a month. Has not returned calls. Waited three hours in office to be seen.
