Worst medical provider experience I have had in years. When I scheduled this appt, they asked us to arrive 15 min early. We were 25 min early. Front office staff was rude and had no idea what to do with my insurance. They claimed it was inactive and wanted to reschedule my son’s appt. We scheduled this a month ago, and I took him out of school early to be there, not to mention my insurance WAS active. I refused to reschedule. They offered no assistance. I had to call Anthem myself and hand the phone over so they could speak directly with Anthem. Even after Anthem verified policy and coverage, they still acted as if I had none. They refused to see my son until they had a credit card number. At this point it was almost 30 min past my son’s appt time. I get that stuff happens, but it was their attitude and lack of assistance that made an inconvenience a horrible experience. After 5 min with the doctor, they had me pay in full, and I left. Can’t even say doc was worth the horrid service.

Dr. Waqar truly cares about making her patients feel comfortable. Whenever I come here for my appointments (be it for my annual skin check or other concerns) I always come in and leave feeling assured that I am in the right hands/place of care. Thank you for always making my visits an enjoyable experience!! :) love everyone here!

I have been a patient of Dr. Waqar’s for years. I have always been treated with respect and kindness. I read these bad reviews and find it extremely hard to believe. Did anyone stop and think it’s hard to get into see her as a new patient because she is that busy and sought after? My first appointment took a while and now I can always get in within a few days. She is worth the wait!

after my primary care doctor said I needed to see a dermatologist for possible skin cancer, I called dr.waqar office to make an appointment. I was told they couldn't see me for 7 months (may 2019) and then the girl laughed. I said im not sure what is funny, but I will call another dr. not a good look for your office.

I had a good experience at the office and had a mole removed and taken for biopsy. The office called with the results while I was at work and unable to answer the call. I have now called back 4 times this week, leaving a message each time, and have had no one call me back. This is unbelievable. Hopefully the results of the biopsy were OK and they are withholding bad news from me!

Dr. Waqar is excellent. She is so very knowledgeable, patient, kind, and is on the cutting edge of dermatology. I am very impressed by her and her staff. She offers a wide variety of medical and aesthetic procedures. I don't know of any other doctor who actually listens closely to what you need and then makes a very accurate assessment of how she can solve your issues. I drive a minimum of 45 minutes to see her... that says a lot.

As yet, Dr. Waqar is not a good diagnostician. She did a biopsy which was unnecessary and caused additional problems. In addition, although her answering machine indicates someone will return the phone call later in the day, this does not happen. It can take a week.
