Dr Mir has a poor bedside manner. He almost seems disinterested in hearing one' symptoms. I'd look elsewhere for a rheumatologist. Also without proper diagnose, he prescribed very toxic drugs that made me more sick
Farmingdale, NY |
Open-minded and good at listening. Constantly learning and seeking new solutions. What more can you ask for from a doctor? He doesn't rush you out, he takes detailed notes, and is always open to trying something new or offering alternatives instead of writing an instant RX. He doesn't try to make you come in unnecessarily, too, saving you the co-pays. Flexible payments, friendly staff, typically short wait time, and night hours further justify the full 5 stars.

Excellent Care. Helped with my Arthritis; so I referred someone else and he too said Dr Mir was a big help in relieving pain. Also the office and staff and great and short wait time. I give them the highest rating!

Useless. The first visit he seemed very caring and wanting to help, after that he didn't care about me at all. Only wanted a paycheck. He never checked my follow up blood work so I went to another doctor and found out that the medicine he put me on is damaging my liver!

less than cursory exam. After completing a detailed medical history form, unaware of history and issues

I limped into Dr. Mir's office suffering from painful arthritis in my knee. Never having experienced this type of joint pain, I was fearful & confused. Dr. Mir's calming demeanor quickly put me at ease answering questions & calming my fears. I walked out confidently for X-Rays around the corner. On my next visit he gave me an injection that was virtually painless. I'd heard horror stories of doctors painfully missing joint. Dr. Mir has proven highly skilled. I've since received 2 more painlessly

I have been suffering from debilitating migraines for years. I've seen plenty of specialists to try to get my constant pain under control and never had any luck. After asking around for some alternative therapies, a friend referred me to Dr. Mir and I couldn't be happier. I came in to get acupuncture and and I'm so relieved that my migraines are finally going away. Dr. Mir is extremely knowledgeable and all of his staff are very sweet and accommodating.

I originally saw Dr. Mir due to hip pain. He was very helpful in assessing the source of the pain and offering treatment that enabled me to avoid surgery. I am returning to him now with shoulder pain, because I trust him to work with me to develop an effective treatment plan.

The left hand doesn't know what the right hand is doing..... The P.A. is worse.... No one listens and every time you call the office it seems like they are having a party in the back ground....
