IF at all possible steer away from this doctor!! She does not listen to her patients or care about their health. The other reviews are correct. She shouldn't be practicing.

Met first time and only gave me 15 minutes to tell her about my conditions. Told her off and this is my time and I pay to see her! Very rude and does not listen about your mental illness and health. Pill pusher. She rx me a medication I am very unsure of. I am going to give it a try though. I have another appt with her and will see how the next go round will be. I doubt of her MD degree.

Nearly walked out of initial consultation. Dr. Faheem seemed desperate to peg me into the holes she wanted. Took small comments and made wild leaps of (il)logic. When it came time to refill the medication she prescribed, CVS was unable to get it refilled. Called the office and they took a note. Nada. Called again. Said she was busy. Ran out of pills and fell into anxiety trying to get it refilled. Well, it's time for another refill, and she is still impossible to reach. I'm done.

Made a bad situation worse with her icy demeanor. Needs to work on her people skills. Spent very little time with patient...10-15 minutes. Never re-evaluated during 4 day hospital stay.

Pill pusher. Did a 30 minute evaluation for a local college student. It is poor practice not to spend at least 90 minutes to do a comprehensive evaluation before prescribing psychotropic drugs.
