Gentle, patient & caring doctor
My husband and I have been seeing Doctor Farooki over 20 years now as our PCP. He is kind, mild mannered, and patient. I never feel rushed, he listens to my concerns and provides solutions. I would recommend him to anyone but especially patients with "white coat" syndrome-he has a very calming nature.

I have been a patient of Dr. Farooki's for many years and have been so pleased with the treatment I received. My husband is also a patient and it was Dr. Farooki who diagnosed kidney failure. Thanks to him my husband promptly began treatment and was able to get a kidney transplant. His entire team, nurses, office staff, etc. are friendly and helpful. I travel from my home in Rockland County so I can remain with Dr. Farooki's practice!

Dr. Farooki has been our primary physician for many years. This month I saw him for an annual physical examination which was overdue for one year because of the pandemic, He was totally friendly and personable, as usual. His examination was thorough, exhibiting caring and good judgement. I thanked him for all the help he has been for my wife and me.

I agree with the other reviewers that Dr. Farooki is both kind and patient. He listens and over the years (Dr. Farooki has been my Primary Care Physician for over 20 years) his experience has helped me identify risk concerns and, for the most part, address them. It is my opinion that he has lost a little in recent years. His annual examination (physical) is not as comprehensive as it used to be. He relies more on lab testing than the traditional touch and feel "physical" (e.g. prostate for one) exam. He is also not as good on follow-up, e.g. reporting results and providing interpretation. In emergencies he is always available and makes time to see you. One side note, his receptionist at the Ruckman Rd office, leaves a lot to be desired. Not friendly - makes you feel like you are wasting her time.
