in Yorktown Heights, NY |
I concur on the ++about Dr. My experience w/staff is horrible. I saw Dr U on 10/24, we arranged an EEG in 2 weeks &office staff was to get approval for an MRI. The day <my EEG, the office called & cancel &told me they would get back to me in a few days to reschedule. At that time I asked about the referral for the MRI &was told that they would call when they got it. I called back in mid nov & staff apologized for lack of response, swore they'd call soon. Now Dec 7th-STILL NO CALL.

Dr. Ubaid is one of the best doctors that I ever met, he is a kind, respectful and extremely knowledgeable Physician, he spend whatever time listening to his patient, his diagnosis always accurate and give you the best way of treatment, If you are looking for a truly outstanding Neurologist, I recommend Dr. Ubaid Shaikh.
in Lake Peekskill, NY |
Arrogant, doesn't listen carefully, didn't review or have all medical records before appointment, (knowing I was there for a specific reason from a referral) therefore wasting my money and time. Opinionated regarding other medical issues that I was not there for (even though I am seeing a doctor for them). Although I had filled out questionnaire, asked same questions as though he didn't read the questionnaire. Very abrupt and unfriendly!
