One of the worst psychiatrists I've seen. Comes across very abruptly which gives the perception that she does not care or listen she is just dictating instructions. They are almost always behind so be prepared to wait for your terse, cold session.

(continued) vomiting, and diarrhea. Severe cases may result in coma and even death. Please do not go to her. Once my friend was experiencing these interactions, she had to go to the hospital. Dr. Firdous was not available because she was out of the country and her staff was of no help. they told my friend she had to wait until she came back to be seen...

Horrible Doctor! Please save yourself the trouble and time! She is by far, the worst Doctor I've ever had the displeasure of dealing with. Unfortunately she is one of the only doctors that prescribe my medication so I have no choice but to deal with her once a month but I feel horrible after each and every visit. They change appointments last minute, she leaves for Pakistan every month it seems and she couldn't care less about my health.

Dr. Furdous took the time to listen to my mental health history. She was very thoughtful and transparent in her assessment of me and the treatment plan she suggested.
