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.

Great doctor! Respectful and listens to my wants and needs. He offers a wide range of treatments, not only does he have sample medications, but he can help you with acupuncture, cupping, as well as cosmetic procedures such as laser hair removal. My whole family goes to him!

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!

A few words to describe Umar Farooq: unprofessional, untrustworthy, disrespectful, greedy. The medical advice he gives out is scary bad. He treats his staff poorly, calling them dumb and stupid in front of patients. He's money hungry. He won't do tests/procedures on patients who need it because their insurance doesn't "pay him enough" and then will do tests/procedures on patients who don't need/want it because their insurance does "pay him enough". If this is his mindset, he shouldn't be a Dr.
Let me clear you. You're not my patient, never was and nor would be. In fact, you were stubborn, rude and unprofessional employee with countless problems and weird attitude. You wanted me to fire everyone rather than teaching or supervising in a proper way. Being an employer, I have all the rights to keep all the employees who are loyal to the organization and work. I am a physicians because of my patients' trust, my dedication & work. Take your unprofessionalism somewhere else & best of luck

Dr. Farooq doesn't answer patient questions at all, or at least mine. He disregards most concerns I have, and out right refuses to answer why need to be seen every month. It took more than 2 weeks to get results, & jat that I had to call more than once to obtain them.

Really like Dr. Umar Farooq, but his medical staff leave ALOT to be desired. My husband went into the office, for a follow up after being in ARIA Torresdale Hospital Sunday night into Monday, and the medical assistants, which were students from places like Brightwood, were UNPROFESSIONAL!! They apparently don't know how to do blood draws, and the lack of experience really showed. They stuck my poor husband 3 times, using THREE different people, and STILL couldn't find a vein!! The last person wa
