Dr. Farag is very knowledgeable. She understands not just how to treat things, but why the treatments work. She’s also not afraid to think outside the box. It’s not your typical “take this pill and tell me about it in three months” situation. She doesn’t just prescribe drugs – she gets to know you and helps you make lifestyle changes that fix some of the underlying issues, and she is easily accessible even while you’re not in her office at an appointment.

I have been a patient for 15 years, I owe her everything for getting my life back on track with her willingness to take the time to listen and continue with me until we found what medications worked for me and brought me back to living a normal life again. This required a lot of patience on her part. Sometimes it was hard not find someone to blame because that’s seems to be the nature with people, everyone wants a quick fix and if they don’t get it then they always see it as the doctors fault. She’s honest and caring about her patients. I would recommend her highly. Your success with her is your honesty with her. No regrets ever!! DAP

I would be lost without Dr. Farag. She always takes time to listen to me ,no matter how much time it takes. I honestly was stunned by some of these reviews,I have known her for 5 years and none of the bad ones sound anything like her. The first time I started seeing her she saved my life . I had to start seeing another Dr. for a few years but went back to her. She tells me so so many things to help my body that I never would have known. Supplements and natural remedies that not only make your body feel better but that make you feel better about yourself. I actually enjoy going to my appointments. I cannot say that for very many Doctors.

Have been seeing Dr. Farag for several years. She is never on time. I see her monthly and for the past three months, I had to talk to her over the phone. She can't even come into the office on a regular basis. She only works 6 hours a day 4 days a week. And, can't even come to the office to see her patients. But, she sure can take the payment from you.

Yet another Dr. that does not take insurance and does not write receipts for insurance. That sounds very suspicious. I won't be seeing this Dr.

Dr. Farag is an outstanding psychiatrist. She shows that she truly cares about you as a person, not just a "patient". She is genuine and authentic . I am a physician myself and set very high stands for medical care. Dr. Farag satisfies all my needs, both physical and psychological. I give her my highest recommendation. Her office staff are friendly and go out of their way to be helpful.
