Patient Comments (5)
in Meriden, CT |
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.
I have watched Dr. Waqar's practice change and rapidly grow over the last few years since they first opened. It has been amazing to be a part of that experience as a patient and as member of the local community. She has consistently shown me compassion, kindness, and expertise at each visit. So thankful to have her as my dermatologist!

I saw her a while ago; first app't. when I left, I realized I had no diagnosis nor a treatment plan!

The most rude receptionist I ever encountered.

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.
We are dismayed that you experience at our Practice was not positive. We take pride in treating our patients with compassion, genuine care, and with open and honest communication. We want to learn from your experience so that we can continue to improve our standards of care. We would really appreciate if you call us and share your concerns with one of the practice administrators so that Dr. Waqar can address your concerns personally.
