First of all everything that is said in the prior reviews is true and then some. Not only is his bedside manner on point but he explains everything in detail. Dr Fahmy makes you feel comfortable and safe in his care.I was looking for a good GYN. I believe that I have found him! The staff is equally courteous. A definite 5+++++ review!

My Goodness, all I can say is he is a God send! He’s very empathic and seems very easy in his approach. He is a natural as if born to do this kind of job if I must say it thisway. He makes comfortable jokes and made me feel so comfortable sharing my concerns, listened attentively without judgement and was very understanding. I came in thinking I was dying from some newborn bubonic plague or something and he immediately calmed my fears. The staff were also friendly and made me feel comfortable as well. Overall it was a great experience and decision to choose Dr. Fahmy as my new GYN. I’ve had several and even stopped going/ neglecting my health because of feelings of judgment or non care from previous providers. This guy is a winner. You won’t be disappointed.

I had an absolute amazing experience with Dr. Fahmy. Unfortunately, I suffered a miscarriage and he made me feel so much better by answering all our (my and my husbands) questions, putting our minds at ease, so easy to talk to,and so knowledgeable. I truly wish all doctors and healthcare providers were like him. He knows how to comfort his patients and explains everything in a way you understand clearly. He is funny, smart, and sympathetic. Best doctor I have ever been to, highly highly highly recommend him 2000% !

Listen...I never write reviews unless I've had a highly unsatisfactory experience, and rarely then, but this time I couldn't wait to get home so I could leave a glowing review for Dr. Fahmy and his staff. In short: they were amazing.I was seen almost as soon as I walked in, even though I was a little bit early. The young lady behind the desk (so sorry I didn't get her name) was very sweet and efficient, and their assistant, Krystal, was one of the most personable I've come across. We chatted about a little bit of everything while she took my vitals, and she let me know everything that was going to happen during my visit there. When I went back to chat with Dr. Fahmy in his office before my visit (this is done for all new patients), I felt "at home" with him and did not feel judged or characterized by him based on some of the things I told him about my history, and he even made me laugh quite a bit; it was like talking to an old friend. He was very sincere and genuine, and I didn't feel rushed at all. My insurance is out of network (I guess I didn't pay enough attention when I booked the appointment), but he reassured me that I had nothing to worry about as everything would be covered. The pap was as painless as these things go, and he and his nurse made sure I was comfortable throughout the procedure. He was very thorough, giving me the run of the mill exam, pap, and did an abdominal and vaginal ultrasound due to some of the concerns I'd brought up. Once I was finished with that, he let me know that he'd have Krystal draw my blood for an extensive workup, and that all I'd have to do was make a follow up appointment to have my old copper IUD removed and a new one put in, and my labs would be ready in about a week or so. I was in and out in less than an hour, but I didn't feel as if any stones were left unturned, so to speak. I only wish I had more lady friends in NYC to refer to him.

I went to see Dr. Fahmy a few times, and I was not really a fan. He is very nice, and he goes out of his way to make sure patients can pay for his services, but it all felt alittle under the table shady. He will pay for lab results if you don't want to, but you will still receive a bill (that you do not have to pay). The first time I went was a standard experience: checkup, tests, bloodwork, etc. I did not like that the nurse in the room faced the wall instead of me- it was like she was uncomfortable watching this, and it made me feel like she was not properly trained to be an OBGYN nurse. It made me think that if God forbid something did happen, she wouldn't actually be able to serve as a witness. We went back to the office, and Dr. Fahmy asked questions about my medical history. He would not put down medicine I was allergic to because get said they didn't qualify as an allergic reaction. I asked him to make a note that I'd had a bad reaction to those medications anyway, and he did not want to (though eventually relented). At one point, he mentioned that I needed to be aware of my mood on birth control, and to check with my boyfriend if I was getting irrational. He said, if your boyfriend says your being mean to him, go off the pill. He told me he does not let his wife go on the pill because she is too crazy. I understood he was trying to be lighthearted and make a joke, but that's not a comfortable thing to hear from a *women's* doctor. My second visit, I was told to go do the blood tests again and to get undressed for an exam. I said I just did all that the month before, was it still necessary? And the nurse told me yes, it was standard practice. Five minutes later, she came back to tell me nevermind, get dressed and go into Dr. Fahmy's office. He apologized and said, "I should have looked at your chart first, we just did all this." That second visit, I was coming back in to discuss the new pill not working for me. He prescribed me the original pill I had been on-- the pill I had come in for because it wasn't working in the first place. I asked him why I was going back to it, and he said it was a different pill. It was not, it was the brand version of the generic I'd been using, and it was in my file as having been used before. I asked what to expect when that pill inevitably did not work, and he said there was nothing to do- we had tried two pills and I would just have to go off birth control. I asked about IUDs, and he said if the two pills online had been on didn't work, nothing would. Again, one of those two was the same pill in a different package. I later found out that the "different" pill he first prescribed was the same type of pill as the first, but either synthetic estrogen. So.... literally there was no change in my prescription the entire time.
