Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Dr. Hanif is a glorified data entry and referral agent. She never physically examines your body. Literally never looks at your place of concern. Instead, she writes notes on her computer about what you report is painful. Relying on you, the patient, to tell her what you need. She recommends no professional insight. Make sure to SPELL out the exact nature of your injury to get the referral for the appropriate procedure or specialist. Her process is to breeze into the exam room 45-60 minutes late without acknowledging she made you wait. She is disrespectful of the patient's time. In the rushed 10-15 minute appointment time, she quickly reviews her computer notes. Asking you redundant questions for procedures she ordered. Then she'll refer you to a specialist and set an unnecessary follow appointment. Afterward, you go back to the front desk where the receptionist speaks publicly about your referrals. This office is only a starting point to visit helpful physicians elsewhere, odd.

I have never had a worse experience interacting with a medical office. Doc was nice enough, although pretty rushed - hardly looked at me, didn't ask if I'd been vaccinated for Covid. The rest of it, a nightmare. My lab work was never given to me, though I called for it (& several samples lab said were improperly cared for so no results). They randomly did a spirometer test (why?) and results were alarming (likely done improperly). I have no symptoms but I guess they charge insurance for it. I found all of this out because I finally insisted a month later they put the results on the portal -- but no one thought to call me. Scheduled me for thyroid ultrasound and Pap. When I made the 6 hr round trip, was told she wasn't there, I wasn't covered for ultrasound and was there for carotid (no). Finally, results of PAP unreadable also because poor sample. Doc will only speak to me if I come back in and pay. Not a chance in hell.

These offices are cramped and unclean. Doctor did not seem knowledgeable. Lastly, very shady billing practices. Find a better doctor.

I had a follow-up appointment with this doctor, and prior to my second appointment i tried calling to reschedule however, they never answered the phone despite many attempts and voice mails. Lately i noticed my credit card was charged $70 extra (without my authorization) for a no-show appointment which in no way should be eligible since I called several times and left voicemails. I kept calling the doctor ever since and surprisingly no one ever answers the phone, and to this day they still don't answer (almost 2 months have passed by). There is only one text number you can communicate with, but those messages are pointless with insufficient information you seek for such as medical results, etc. I have canceled all future appointments with this doctor, and I am still calling everyday so they can provide the refund for the non-authorized fee, but no one answers regardless.

It was a wonderful experience at MMA. Found it the same as I had heard about it from my friend. A very compassionate human being, meticulous to details and an exceptional primary care physician.

Best primary care physicians clinic near me in Chelsea. I have tens of medical facilities around but never think of visiting any other than MMA. They provide excellent treatment, the staff is very professional and the doctor is meticulous to details. I appreciate their work a lot.
