Dr. Hamsa was very nice...but the nurses at the desk were rude. They don't say anuthing to you when you walk through the door as if you're already supposed to know what to do. When I was leaving one of theladies at the desk gave me my physical form to sign and I asked her if I was done afterwards nd she slightly nodded her head nd wouldn't even luk up at me.I told her to have a good day and she ignored me as if I didnt say anything.I wouldnt go back because of that reason but the doctor was very polite .

Good doctor. She seems to care about patients. She takes time to listen to your complaints and orders some tests before she reaches any conclusions. Most doctors i have seen arent even listening when you try to tell them about yourproblem - they just act like they already know whats wrong with you and go ahead and prescribe the same medicine they prescribed the last 10 patients.

This is the DR I go to only if I can't make it into the city to see my regular physician, basically for the sheer convenience of location. Dr. Hamsa's staff is extremely rude, the office is not very clean, andthe wait time has always been more than 1 hour each time I've been there. Dr. Hamsa and her staff give very little thought to other people's time. While she is fairly nice and a good enough DR, I couldn't see recommending her to anyone else.

first visit went very well. nice, polite, professional. she asked a lot of (good) questions and took time to understand my complicated list of medications I currently take. I can be picky when it comes to doctors but dr hamsa is definitely a keeper.

Dr. Hamsa is great. I luckily found her here on Zoc Doc and it's no wonder she's got such great reviews. The wait time on Saturday mornings is pretty horrendous but I think that's the deal with most dr offices onweekends. She is worth the wait, professional, thoughtful and doesn't rush her patients. I'd recommend going on a weekday.

The physical check was really quick. I hope to get more information from the doctor. I need to go back for blood test and cholesterol test. The office doesn't provide pampers test and ultrasound and I have to some where elsefor those. So, the office seems to be new and doesn't have all the facilities needed for a simple annual physical check yet.

The office was stuffed with sneezing and coughing people that refused to cover their mouths. The women at the front desk were okay, but incredibly short - possibly due to the fact that there were so many people - so manysick people. All in all the place had a very clincal-feel almost like the way the DMV feels - stuffed, gross, and "take your ticket" feel. Not much comfort - magazines, comfortable chairs, soft surroundings. After waiting a half hour - I was ready to leave...but my name was called. The doctor felt rushed. I wondered whether my whole physical had been administered. She was nice enough - but I don't feel satisfied. Maybe it was the atmosphere and her lack of warmth - but I just feel very...not taken care of - all it was missing was someone screaming "next" while every one stood in a straight face line...and someone throws mush onto your plate. This may only make sense to me, but what I'm trying to say is I got the service. It wasn't an awful experience. My wait was about 40 min. I didn't leave feeling violated or upset, but I didn't have a great comforting experience (which is something that I'm looking for)

Dr. Hamsa was great. She definitely took the time to examine me and listen to what I felt was wrong. Also the people working at the reception were diligent in getting paperwork prepared and managing wait times. I'm very happy with the experience overall.

Dr. Hamsa is professional albeit not necessarily personable. Receptionists/Assistants are slow, unhelpful and unprofessional.

very very sweet, took the time to ask a lot of questions and go the extra mile to ensure I was comfortable and to analyze my diagnosis. I don't think I have had a doctor who listened and communicated with me as well as Dr. Hamsa
