I originally said that I felt the staff was rude. I felt they had handled things too slowly, but I believe that was due to my own fears of illness.

I went to two appointments and saw only one of the PAs. You would think having been a first time patient, that I would have been examined and had the opppitunity to have a consultation with the doctor. Not going back.

I was shocked to find out I had Atrial Fibrillation. My doctor sent me to Dr Ashfaq 3 mos ago. for testing and diagnosis. What a great team of medical prosessionals he has. Testing was fast and correct, again I was shocked to have anything although I did feel tired. But Dr Ashfaq is fabulous and I just adore him and his staff for helping me. Now if I could lose some weight I would really feel good. He put on medication and I am no longer tired walking or my heart does not race sometimes,

Dr. Ash took care of heart issues for both my parents. He is a really skilled Cardiologist who really cares about his patients and has an excellent office staff supporting him, You know when he walks into the room that he has all the prior information and always seems to know right away how to make them feel better.
