I was having acid reflux problems almost every night before seeing Dr Faruqi. He prescribed Nexium and explained about proper eating habits. I came in for my six month follow up and can say I haven't had an acid reflux incident since our last visit. Very happy with my care and colonoscopy. No pain experienced and good results.

My visit with Dr Faruqi was one of the worst ever. He was rude from the minute he walked into the room. Had very serious questions to ask him and he didn't even care to answer or check out the problem. Office help was rude and inefficient also. I will find a Dr. who cares and gives the patient the care of a simple exam and the 2 seconds it takes to answer questions regarding my health.
Houston, TX |
Fast friendly and painless. Will use him for all future gastro needs.
Houston, TX |
I made a previous review out of frustration of not being able to get through to his office all day - i am just now finally being told they are having telephone issues - so I apologize and will remove that post as soon as I can

Excellent bedside manner. Takes time to answer questions. Can schedule colonoscopies in a reasonable amount of time ( within a week or 2).
in Cypress, Texas |
I was not with Dr. Faruqi for long during my pre-screenings and at my two colonoscopy procedures and at my follow up appointments, but just knowing him over a five year span, he is one of my favorite doctors of all times and I am almost 72. I liked him very much and felt totally at ease and safe with him. He has one of the best hospital teams for the procedure I have ever encountered. They were incredibly efficient and professional and yet when I left I knew five of them by name.

in Houston, TX |
I was scheduled over a month ago for a colonoscopy. I called the office to verify my appointment twice this morning before taking the prep medicine. I was told to begin the medication and they would call me back. I never received a call back and when I called again after taking the medicine, I was told my appointment had to be cancelled because everyone is new in the office and the referral was not processed so my insurance could not authorize the procedure. POOR customer service!!!
in Cypress, TX |
Was referred to Dr. Faruqi by my physician, he was professional as well as his staff, I was very nervous about having a colonoscopy for the first time , I worried for nothing, also the product they sell for the day before was well worth the money and it was not a bad experience at all.
in Houston |
My experience with this office staff was unprofessional. After many times of asking the nurse/assistant if there was going to be any other charges I should be aware of, I was told that everything was paid for. I even specifically asked about lab charges. I was told that if samples were sent, then it shouldn't be anymore than $1000.00 per sample. I was ok with that. A few months later I was hit with a 6000.00 lab bill!!! I was never told the amount of samples being sent to the lab
in Houston, TX |
He has been very good to my husband and stays on top of his health. We really like him and would highly recommend him.
