Excellent physician but poor staff
in Lodi, NJ |
Friendly staff and very helpful. Dr. Shafqat took all the time needed to explain what was going on and what we needed to do next.

DR shafqat takes the time to listen to me - which is rare these days. I feel like a human being and not a number.
East Orange, NJ |
Dr. Shafqat seems to always be running behind on appointments. I usually have to wait 30 minutes or longer to see her. However, she is very friendly and approachable. She discusses my condition with me in detail and spends time answering my questions. I forgive the longer than usual wait times because I know she spends time with each patient being incredibly thorough.
Englewood, NJ |
My first visit w/ Dr. Shafqat. I was very happy with the time she took to gather all the info. to see what would be the first steps to start figuring out my diagnosis. She was very kind & pleasant. The only thing I felt was she isnt really into holistic healing, such as herbs or natural supplement, because it can mask the real issue. But that is ok. Everyone is entitled to feel different about this. I hope that I continue to get the best care possible in the future visits.
in Kearny |
Dr. Shafqat spent considerable amount of time with me on my first visit. She reviewed my issues, asked pertinent questions and was able to begin treating me. She is also researching other issues with my Oncologist to further assist in my treatments. Excellent beginning.
I was very disappointed in this doctor. She seemed annoyed when questions were asked, doesn't have a progressive perspective and is not open to discuss other aspects of the body. Her bedside manner had a lot to be desired and when a doctor tells a patient to get used to not feeling well, It is definitely a goods sign to move on to another physician that cares also about their patience will and desire to improve their health, instead of discouraging them.
in Verona, NJ |
Dr. Shafqat is a nice lady but worst endo I have seen. I switched over and visiting my new endo today. Blood work results not delivered in a timely manner, no reason a patient should always have to follow up for their results especially during a pregnancy. Office staff always seem clueless and do not check you out appropriately. They don't book your next appointment even though Dr. Shafqat tells you in the room her staff is booking a scan and calling in new medication
Belleville, NJ |
They gave me an appointment for 5 and left Addy 430. I'm type 1 diabetic who had a kidney transplant. Wouldn't be that bad if they hadn't called me to confirm the night before, and asked if i could go in early and said nothing about LEAVING EARLY THEN. doctor is wonderful, whoever handles the appointments us horrible. Oh to top it off they didn't call to let me know they were leaving early
in Montclair, NJ |
Dr. Shafqat is a conscientious provider. She has an empathetic ear.
Caldwell, Nj |
Dr Shafqat was very helpful, spent considerable amount of time with me and my daughter discussing number of options and further treatment plan. We were very satisfied. Her kind and affectionate attitude help alleviate most of our anxiety and concerns. I would highly recommend her
Verona, NJ |
Waiting time was over 1 hour, poor bedside manner, not open to discussing options for treatment
