Super nice doctor and seemed very intelligent. I got bloodwork done and am very scared of needles. They did it wellbut my only wish was that I was able to lay down during the procedure because I passed out sitting up and woke up very pale. Otherwise was great and I got medicine to help me right away.

Akash was great as usual. He makes me actually look forward to going in to the doctor's office. Which says a lot! A year ago you couldn't pay me to attend the doctor's. The waiting time is superb and he makes you feel like you're his only patient.

Dr. Ferdaus is very kind, patient, and knowledgeable. I didn't feel rushed when speaking with him as I have with other doctors in the past. The office staff and medical assistants are very friendly and efficient. Even though the office seemedquite busy, they kept a steady flow of patients and my wait time was very short. It is a small private practice but Dr. Ferdaus also works at a local hospital. Communication with the office for making appointments, providing insurance information, and getting referrals are also very simple, easy, and pleasant. Overall, a very nice experience.

Dr. Ferdaus was very nice, it was my first time visiting his office and I felt like I knew him for years. He took note of all my complaints and concerns and gave me full information on the medication he provided.His staff was also really sweet, wait time was 5 minutes, the time it took the receptionist to take all my information. I would highly recommend.

I showed up an hour early due to getting out of work a lot sooner than planned. I was able to be checked in, have my vitals checked, got blood work completed, and booked a follow up appointment all within ahalf an hour. Receptionist was very friendly and helpful and Dr. Ferdaus was very personable and inviting.

Dr Ferdaus was extremely professional, personable, and quickly diagnosed my symptoms and called in medication and tests immediately. Despite the fact that I made an appointment the same day I was able to be seen fairly quickly after I showedup even though the office was backed up with other patients. Highly recommended.

I went in for a prescription refill (same prescriptions that I have for years) but I haven't been able to make it to my PCP because she is so far away, he was unable to send scripts to the pharmacy electronicallybecause he said that he didn't have the software, so he hand wrote the one that he was unable to send except he put my birthday where today's date should have been, invalidating it. Also, I asked to have the Dr look at a very bad cut on my hand and to take care of a wart on my foot, he did neither and he said that the front desk would call me to make sure that I made him my PCP by Monday (I saw him on a Friday) and "we could go from there". He seemed to be a nice man, and I am sure that he had a long day and was exhausted, mistakes happen, but he is almost as far as my usual Dr, and he took care of none of the things that I went in for, so I will not be going back.
