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.
