Dr Quddusi rocks. She will listen to you and if you listen and follow instructions given by her your health in my opinion will greatly improve. She's been a great Dr. For me going on 10 years....thanks... Tony

I have never left a review about a Dr until now. Doc, as my husband would call her, was the most caring person. Her heart felt treatment of him was beyond the care of any Dr we have had. She truly cared and we knew it. She was kind, compassionate yet professional and an excellent Dr. She always took extra time to explain every stage of my husband's illness. Thank you Dr Q!

As an RN I am always looking for providers who are comprehensive in their care and knowledge. A co-worker recommended her to my husband and I went along to assess her abilities to care for him. I was so impressed that now I see her as a patient and have referred my mother to her as well.

She is knowledgeable, prompt, and clear with her assessment and advice. She is a no nonsense provider who will tell it like it is.

I highly recommend Dr, Quddusi to any diabetic needing specialized care. I have been an insulin dependent diabetic for over 45 years and have complete confidence in her care.

I saw Dr Quddusi one month after having surgery for a hyperparathyroid adenoma. Pronounced cured by my surgeon ( Douglas Sorensen MD) I still felt HORRIBLE and was told perhaps I had something else going on. Discouraged and desperate, I referred myself to Dr Quddusi. Rather than scold, she assured me that recovery sometimes is SLOW and that I had a new body that would take time to adjust. I left her office with hope and she was absolutely right!Today, I am well and eternally grateful.
