Dr. Farooq was very professional, honest, and knowledgable. Easy to talk to you and made you very comfortable about a not-so-comfortable subject. Everyone in his office was the same. Hemorrhoid Surgery went so much better than I ever expected. Not pleasant the first couple days, but I followed everything Dr. Farooq told me to do and was up and ready to go with very little discomfort in less than a week. I would definitely recommend Dr. Farooq!
