He’s kind and compassionate and has always cared for my needs and issues. Appointments move quickly although he spends time with each patient. There is also a nurse practitioner but you can either see her or request the doctor.

I have been going to Dr. Farooq for several years! He has not only taken care of me at his office, but also at the hospital. His office is very clean and calm. His staff is so helpful and nice. I can easily get an appointment, and often if I am really ill, I can walk in without having a long wait.

I have been going to Dr. Farooq for years! Cannot ask for a better doctor! Has saved my life many times. Would not only take care of me in the office, but visited me while I was sick with pneumonia in the hospital! Compassionate and caring, as well as very smart!
