Patient Comments (6)
Houston, TX |
Agree with other reviews. High pressure to have expensive, potentially dangerous procedures. These procedures are performed in the back room next to the restroom. No privacy and unclean looking. If you don't agree to the $1,000 injection, they won't manage your pain. Receptionist very rude. They did a urinalysis test and charged my insurance $1,200!

The receptionist was rude the wait was four hours in total the doctor did not listen to me but he is very quick to offer procedures that can be highly dangerous to the patients I thought that I was being blackmailed into having the procedure is done so that he would treat or manage my pain management . I would not recommend this doctor to anyone I seriously believe that my insurance had a lot to do with what happened today since I'm on Medicaid I will be contacting my insurance tomorrow .
Edinburg, TX |
Incompetent nursing staff, can't even set up a proper appointment. Never see the doctor unless getting an injection, quality of care is mediocre at best. The general staff are VERY hit and miss, mostly rude and very and not compassionate to the patient's needs.

Dr. Rashid was attentive, compassionate, and most importantly a highly skilled professional. HIs office staff was polite and patient. I am a winter Texan and went to him for back pain. My pain totally resolved with the help of his interventions. I am recently retired from the medical profession and would recommend Dr. Rashid to my friends and family.

I'm not sure about how good of a doctor he is, because I haven't seen him yet! My appointment was at 10, it's now 12:05 and still waiting. Ridiculous! Everybody understands that things come up and doctors can be delayed, but this is the typical case of a doctor money grabbing. It shows a huge lack of respect and a real arrogance to do this. I will post a follow up once I have been seen...
