Not about the Doctor
I have not been into see the doctor. I found this office through TriCare. I provided all the paperwork the office requested a month in advanced. I call the check because the authorization No notification authorization and it is the week before the appointment. The office staff says gonna have to call you back... nope did not do that. I call next morning and put on hold for over an hour. I hang up and call back to say I am gonna need to reschedule the appointment. Oh okay, the next new patient appointment is Oct. Total office failure!!!

Dr. Fattah has been my neurologist for 17 years. He is awesome & has always taken great care of me. I really think the world of him & his staff. He listens, answers questions & makes certain that I understand my condition. He is extremely knowledgeable, personable & caring. All of his office Team are helpful, friendly & take an interest in your wellbeing. Dr. Fattah often has medical students with him, I think that he's a great educator. He never rushes his patients & wait times are practically nonexistent. I have & will continue to highly recommend this medical professional. He provides top quality care!

Accepts cash only, (no cards), rude staff and excessive wait times. This Dr. Has a terrible bedside manner and is very condescending. Even when they are open, they let the phone go to an automated answering service that has no functioning system. I wish there was less than one star to give. This guy has zero idea how to run a business and comes off as somebody who could care less after you pay cash in advance. Be warned.

Dr Fattah took the time to review my extensive history when I came in as a new patient. He worked with me for over a month (due to me having Mast Cell Activation Syndrome) to find the right medication for my needs. Very impressed. The office staff are by far some of the nicest people I’ve met. Their professionalism and patience in working with me has been superb. Appointments have been easy to make and my questions have always been answered promptly even if it was to say they would get me an answer by the end of the day. When I had a prescription issue the ladies there helped me to work with my pharmacy to get the special order medication and the doctor/reception team were also able to give me samples to tithe me over until the medication could be ordered.

My husband went to this doctor with a referral (which our insurance doesn't require) from our PC to have a nerve test done. The day of the appointment he repeated why he was there and was taken into an exam room and told the doctor would be in to do the test in few minutes. The doctor never did the test, only telling my husband he had swelling, not explaining anything more, and to come back the next day. The front desk was questioned why the test was not done and said it was because our insurance required him to be an established patient. We called our insurance and found that was an outright lie and they were outraged at this treatment. When I called to question them the story changed several times from it's office policy to it's your insurance to if he had a referral... This office is not only very unprofessional (you can tell by the lax way they answer their phones) but very dishonest and only out for money. DO NOT GO TO THIS DOCTOR IF YOU WANT HONEST, DECENT CARE!

I have been seeing Dr. Abdulfattah for several years for chronic migraine. He has always been thorough, patient and pleasant about explaining everything. He is up to date on treatments and accepts patient input graciously. His "chairside manner" is wonderful. He is warm and friendly to talk to. He is the best neurologist I have ever been to! And his office staff is fantastic!! I never have to wait more than 5 minutes.

My father had a stroke & apparently Mr. Fattah saw him at Oak Hill hospital but was so unremarkable no one in my family remembers him examining my father (including my father) Maybe he examined him when he was asleep or didn't introduce himself. Both are bad. We are waiting on the records but I personally suspect insurance fraud. I tried to make an appointment with another neurologist and was told with Access Healthcare that's not possible unless he waits 3 years. Scared to be compared? Suspect!

The worst doctor I have ever had. I had to pay cash for him to do my paper I needed for court and they change me per page and they also had me go every other month for him to let me keep my license!?? That has never happened to me before, I’ve been seizure free for well over three years and he was acting like I have them nonstop. I will never go back and would never recommend him to anyone even if they’re my worst enemy!

I have had the displeasure of meeting with a different neurologist before finding Dr, Fattah. He cares about me as a patient and is always available when I need him. He takes time to go over everything in the office and I never feel rushed to get out. I would and have recommended him to friends and family.

I made appointment with him about a month ago because I had numbness on the right side of my head and pain. The numbness went away by the time I went to my appointment today, he asked me why I was here and I told him I had numbness but it went away he said to me don't worry about it he thinks it's coming from my neck and and that was about it he is very arrogant I wish I read the reviews before going to him it was a waste of time I would not recommend him to nobody

I went to him trying to figure out why I can't regulate my body temperature. I explained what was going on and he told me to stop trying to find out what wrong and learn to live with it. I would not recommend him to a dead dog.
