Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Fatimi "In medical school, I was fascinated by the diagnostic puzzles of clinical neurology.  While I still enjoy diagnostic challenges, forging long-term relationships with patients has proven to be the most fulfilling aspect of my medical career.  My strong relationships are based upon collaboration with my patients, their caregivers, and their other health care providers.  

I respect patients' time and accommodate busy schedules by offering early morning and evening appointments. I strive to maintain open and easy lines of communication by giving my patients direct phone access and by encouraging electronic communication via Weill Cornell Connect.  "

I was very disappointed with Dr. Fatimi. And, she did not respond to my request for follow up. In one instance, she waited more that 2 weeks. The second request - no reply.
