Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

I have a history of polyps, diverticulosis and a strong family history of colon cancer. Dr. Farqui did my colonoscopy on 10/06/16. Results were normal except he could NOT see in the cecum. Because stools were in the way. His office said in that case it should be repeated in 1 year. But he recommended it be repeated in 5 years! With my family history I could have stage 4 cancer by then. Leaving my testing frequency up to him could very well cost me my life. Please beware.

I had to use this doctor for a colonscopy because of insurance restrictions. I received appointment instructions in the mail. My colonscopy was scheduled for 1:00 on a Friday. Imagine my surprise when I received a automated phone call the night before confirming my appointment for 10:30. There's been no office visit: only at the procedure. He has done no follow up. I was told to call his office for biopsy results. I have called the office 3 times and left messages.

My husband and I have visited Dr. Faruqui on many occasions. I will start with his office staff, they are exceptional. Whenever I call for Porsha, his assistant she is always very prompt at returning my calls. Dr. Faruqui himself is very knowledgeable and patient. He takes plenty of time with us and is always very attentive. He always goes in depth when explaining our lab results and symptoms. I highly recommend him and his office!
