This place is awful, we waited over 2 hours for the first visit then almost 2 hours for the follow up which was at 745am and we were assured we wouldn't wait because of how early it was. And if youask the secretaries up front what is taking so long they get rude with you. Don't waste your time at this over booked sweatshop

Dr Sheikh was very knowledgeable and informative. Asked me several times if I had questions and seemed to genuinely care about my well being. He is no nonsense and direct and to the point and that I think is a great quality you want in a doctor.

Excellent doctor. Wish he was not in such a hurry and took his time to explain details. Had to stop him and ask questions. His insight and advice were invaluable.

I can't really give much of a review because I wasn't in much pain and I already knew I had a herniated disc going in. However, I do feel like he was a bit brusque. He basically told me everything mychiropractor had told me only not as nicely. I kind of wish I had found someone else but I'll be sticking with him since my insurance takes him and I already paid for an X-ray there.

First time here. Had to wait just over an hour before I was taken out of waiting area, after that things went quickly. Dr. Sheikh was awesome. Took plenty of time to explain what the problem is and was very nice to. I would highly recommend him.

Dr. Sheikh is extremely knowledgeable. He answered my questions without hesitation and explained his diagnosis and prognosis. I was able to comfortably ask him questions as he talked and he didn't mind stopping to explain. He does speak rapidly,but will slow down when asked to. I am confident and very satisfied that I received excellent care.

Just one thing about Zocdoc: I filled the online form 2 days before the appointment, and when I was there, the secretary could not find it. I had to do it twice and I had to wait a very long time(more than an hour) to finally see the doctor (which was really excellent).
