Dr. Alzubaidi is one of the finest doctors I ever encountered. She was my first endocrinologist and I remember her kindness, absolute intelligence, and exceptional care for patients.

I switched insulin,and she told me to increase the number of units/day by 40%. Turns out that I actually needed to decrease my dose by 1 unit under the new insulin. I don't understand how she came up with the idea to increase my dose by so much, but she wasn't following the standard procedure for that insulin. This could've resulted in severe lows. The office is really disorganized, and it's really difficult to get the receptionists to do anything that you need like an insurance preauthorization

I do not usually write reviews but people need to know what they are getting into before they visit thus doctor. Plan on waiting 2-3 hours!!! And I'm not joking or exaggerating. First time I went I had a 3:15 appointment and did not leave the office until around 6:45. My second appointment I get a call before my appointment saying the doctor is running 2 hours behind! Really! Are you kidding me?? All I can think of is greed to schedule that many patients to the point that you are ALWAYS runnin

If you're going to whine about waiting, then don't go to Dr. Alzubaidi. It's as simple as that. Now if you place high value on seeing one of the best endocrinologists in town and don't mind the wait then she's your girl. She provides excellent diagnosis and care for my Hashimoto's thyroiditis and is willing to delve deeper and offer more advice than my previous doctors. She also discovered that my Vitamin D levels were critically low. My previous doctors never even checked.

As other patients have said - you will never see her when your appointment is actually scheduled. This being said - she will also never push you out of the office without answering any question or concern that you have. Which would you rather have? If you can plan in advance, which you can, simply by calling prior to your appointment. You will have a doctor that actually listens to individuals rather than lumping you into the masses.

This doctor is ignorant and dismissive of the patients time. The constant rescheduling and cancelling of appointments and disregard for the health of the patient is a dangerous mixture. See her at your own peril. Her staff is inconsistent also. Sometimes friendly and sometimes rude, depending on who is working. For someone who is so 'busy', it is amazing that there is usually only one other in the office waiting to see her.

Dr. Al-Zubaidi is knowledgeable, caring, and spends all the time necessary to understand your issues *and* to explain them in great detail. Have been her patient for years, now. As for scheduling, the staff most-often calls to help determine a good arrival time. On the rare occasion they do not, simply call myself. It is not the most convenient - BUT - it is more than worth it for her top-notch treatment. If you have a very tight schedule, the earlier in the day, the less wait.

She was the worse, didn't have time to explain anything and just prescribe more insulin and I end it up on the emergency room again because I drop so much, and in the top of that after 3 years she send me a bill first for 255 and then 400 dollars, I tried to call her office many time nobody was available to help me because the person who does it only works on Monday after 5pm, fro 1 to 2 hours a week. This is the worse office I ever went. I will not recommend it.
