I saw Dr. Shareef as a result of ER visit that turned into a hospital stay. I liked him and found that he answered questions, was busy but the floor had a number of emergencies that day, he came back and answered questions again and followed up with MRI which he let me know was all okay. I liked him. I will follow up with appointment as suggested in discharge papers

I'm surprised to see (-) reviews. I've met with him a few times and he was very open to diff types of seizures and why they happen. I've done great at the half dose of what was prescribed. The people at the front were great especially when I had 5 specific questions for them before considering going to them & they passed all of them with flying colors. My service dog is welcomed as well & I am treated on a level where it seems like what I have to say is meaningful. Thank you! Kristina/Patriot!

I found Dr. Shareef to have little knowledge regarding the diseases his own test results (MRI's, CT Scans) reveal. Abnormal numbers are not acknowledged or explained, his ability to answer questions is not consistent, and the time spent with patients is minimal. An appointment was made at the last minute without explanation as to the need for it. A pain medication was suggested. I answered it wasn't necessary-no prescription was given. On the next visit, he asked if the meds had helped.

Untimely: constantly changes his instructions from visit to visit regarding medications. He causes this patient a lot of anguish. He does not listen to pain issues. Quick to come to different conclusion at every visit.

Terrible. He knew nothing about my disease (Neurofibromatosis) and they scheduled an appointment for me without telling me,and I was billed for that appointment for being a no show, I called the office and they said "oh, we didn't have the right phone number"
