Fresno, CA |
Dr. Sarwar should be your last choice of neurologist. She is far from thorough and is quick to refer to treatment without a definitive diagnosis. She doesn't seem to care about her patients' well being and has terrible bedside manner. If you prefer taking your health into your own hands, this isn't the doctor for you. She won't read your file, she'll limit your options, and even scold you if you disagree. Choose a doctor who doesn't regularly arrive at work an hour after her appointments begin.

An AMAZING doctor!!! Finally, my daughter does not suffer from migraines. Appointments are always on time and the office staff is great! Dr. Sarwar listens and answers all the questions my daughter and I have. She explains the treatment/medications she recommends. Dr. Sarwar is a warm person that really cares about my daughter's well being. The greatest compliment I can give her is that my teenage daughter loves her.

I actually am from Fresno and saw her at the Fresno office. I tried to report her at the Fresno office but you can only do this once a month. This is the worst Dr I have ever done business with. I went to see her and she was suppose to order a MRI on my back. She never did. I had to submit my own to Saint Agnes. After I had my MRI done I called three days in a row and she still hadn't read my MRI. On the fourth day I was told she would be out of town for three weeks. Saw primary. bak Sur
