I had an appointment today and it was horrible. I waited over 2 hours to be seen. Other people that was waiting just left. During my visit, Dr. Faruqui told me I needed to lose weight and told me to google a diet plan. While she was talking, she asked was I educated.. was I educated enough to use google. I said my 8 year old son can use google. Why would you asked me that? Being educated has nothing to do with my appointment. Very disrespectful. I will not be returning.

I was referred to Dr. Faruqui for treatment of my breast cancer. I was so nervous and scared. When I walked into the office, I was greeted with the warmest smile from her staff. Everyone there was so pleasant. I was so worried about everything. Dr. Faruqui was so reassuring. She took time to explain everything to me and plan my treatment. I received chemo over a period of six months. Dr. Faruqui and her staff were amazing. I would definitely refer anyone to her.

I was referred to this doctor by my primary care physician. She was very caring and compassionate. She spent time with me and answered all my questions. I would recommend her to anyone. She and her staff were excellent.

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.
