Saw my 13 year old daughter today who slammed her thumb in the door. She is an athlete who plays volleyball and was concerned about her season. Dr. Faruqui explained things in very good plain language that a teenager could understand and explained the extent of her injury and her road back to playing again.

Dr. Faruqui is very good at the entire education of an issue. I knew I had carpel tunnel, but never knew the extent. Dr. Faruqui explained in detail what he would be looking for, the options of fixing the problem, all of the possible side affects, recovery, and overall process of surgery and follow up. I learned quite a lot of information in the first and second appointment, which is very comforting for any patient. I highly recommend Dr. Faruqui for any person experiencing hand/arm issues.
