Las Vegas, NV |
Dr. Wahid is the worst doctor I ever dealt with. He shows no concern for his patients. I was admitted to the hospital and was informed by the nurse that he would be performing a colonoscopy and scope to determine the cause of my abdominal pain. I was only allowed to speak to him 10 seconds before they put me under. Afterwards, 4 hours later, the doctor spoke with me for approximately 30 seconds regarding the results, would not entertain any questions or concerns. Will never go back to him.

After being admitted from the emergency room, it was clear from day one that this doctor doesn't care about what is actually wrong with his patients. 4 days in the hospital and o ly saw him twice for a total of 30 to 40 seconds. Didnt explain ANYTHING. Had nurse discharge her without giving any diagnosis. She is still having same pain. Seeing another doctor on Monday. This guy is terrible, go somewhere else!

I had a TERRIBLE experience with this doctor. He never explained the procedures, never spoke to me afterwards, and was unable to even give me the correct diagnosis. After the procedure he never showed his face again. His assistant was the only one who came and offered no answers. When discharged I was given the diagnosis of constipation. I ended going to another provider which diagnosed me with a very serious illness that required immediate hospitalization.

I am having a colonoscopy in 3 days. During office visit I told Dr. Wahid I have Ankylosing Spondylitis and I'm concerned about my fused neck and spine, also a hip replacement. Specifically I told him I'm afraid of a bowel purfiration. He assured me I have nothing to worry about, "I have preformed colonoscopies on people who are in much worse shape". He made me feel very confident in his ability to not cause me any harm. So I decided to go ahead with the procedure. I will post results.

One of the best doctors I ever had. I can give him the highest recommendations.

The doctor is okay. Not the greatest communicator. However, dealing with office staff after both hospital visits has been difficult. They don't return phone calls. He's impossible to schedule appointments with that are not months out .... even after being in the hospital. I've even had an endoscopy scheduled, showed up and he wasn't there. No one called me to tell me. I go here because I have to.
in Las Vegas, NV |
Scheduled second colonoscopy, never explaining to patient or their family a reason. Doesn't make hospital rounds or inquire on their condition. Never communicated with patient's nurse as directions for care.

Worst Doctor experience I've had, doesn't explain the procedure, doesn't take time to talk, has a rude attitude.
