What People Say About Dr. Qahtan Abdulfattah, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

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 a few years now and I can say that he is very caring and listens to me and does not rush me. He takes all the time I need. The girls in the office are all very nice.

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.

Dr. Fattah is the most arrogrant, cold , insensitive neurologist I ever had the displeasure of being around. Very early after my father had a major stroke my father was referred to this......person...during the recovery period Dr. Fatah stated IN FRONT OF MY DAD, who was also a Dr., that after three months after the stroke he would show no improvement. That information is not only erroneous, but he should have told myself or my family in private. Before hearing this he was speaking.

I took my wife to Oak Hill on Saturday afternoon at 4:30 with symptoms of having had a stroke. They performed multiple test and said Dr. Abdulfattah was on call and wold be in to see her as well as 15 other people who needed a neurologist to review their test results and order appropriate treatments. It has been 30 hours now and n one knows where he is. This DR. clearly has no regard for the staff of patients. I can not stress how unprofessional he is!

Dr. Fattah was great. He listened to me and responded appropriately. All I needed from him was a referral to a neurosurgeon and he gave it to me with no problem. I woudl definitely recommend him!
