I waited 2 1/2 to 3 1/2 hours to be seen at each visit. She did not examine me prior to surgery and did not do a good job of the actual surgery

I had the pleasure of meeting Dr. Mahmoud after I was diagnosed with stage II colon cancer at the age of 46. My gastro physician made the arrangements for me to go to her office within a week of my new diagnosis. After sitting in the office for quite sometime, Dr. Mahmoud spent about an hour with me, explaining what was next to come. Although I don't appreciate waiting in a physicians office for an extended period of time, the wait was well worth it in the end. Dr. Mahmoud is a wonderful doc.

Dr. Mahmoud gave my mother great care. She operated on her at 88 years old and gave her years to spend with her family. Great doctor, great bedside manner

The absolute WORST dr appointment of my life... I waited 3 months to get into see her... waited two hours past my appointment time to see her... she was rude... unfriendly and insensitive... I have never rated a doctor before because I've never felt compelled to... but this visit as well as her bedside manner was so horrific I felt it warranted a review! Penn Doctors are normally wonderful... this was very disappointing I do not suggest seeing her!

Very bad experience. After unsuccessful surgery have tried to contact the doctor early in recovery stage, never have heard from her. Overall impression that I was treated as an object for skill improvement purpose. Or charging my insurance. Or both. Would never recommend her.
