Yasir Shareef is an incompetent doctor
Yasir Shareef is an incompetent doctor with a big ego and shoddy medical knowledge. I’ve never had a doctor treat me so disrespectfully. He mocked me in front of his staff, raised his voice, convince me I didn’t know anything about medicine and I wasn’t really sick and I didn’t really need tests. This is what he opened with, after quickly getting debriefed by his PA on my situation but before asking me any questions and before he did any tests. Guess what? “Doctor” Yasir Shareef was wrong about everything. Through my MRI report, I learned that I have moderate to severe cervical spinal stenosis and bone spurs in several vertebrae that are poking the thecal sac holding my spine and causing me great pain. When I told his office manager that I was thinking about writing a poor review because I had such a bad experience . She told me he wouldn’t care bc doctors don’t care about reviews. I told her, “well he should care because those are his clients thoughts and opinions.”

Absolutely awful. Will call other doctors idiots right to your face. Tells you all other diagnostic testing you've done is fake. He apparently is god and knows all. Horrendous attitude and a vicious know it all complex.

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.
