I would not ever recommend Dr. Faruqui to family or friends. I wouldn't even recommend her to enemies. She is the absolute worst doctor I've ever encountered. I am an oncology RN with 20 years of experience, and I can tell you from a medical standpoint, Faruqui does not follow, and isn't interested in best practices. Her only interest is in herself and making money. I watched her first hand speak to my uncle like a dog. Stay far away.

Horrible person with a very negative attitude. 3-4 hour wait for a two-minute consult. Tells patient they're going to die without her. Depends on referrals from her husband. Berates caregivers and resents any questions. Just milks the insurance. Run, run, run and don't look back. Hospital nurses have no respect for her.
