Doctor appeared disconnected. Also kept pushing for x-ray and EKG test for my physical while I was waiting to make sure it was covered by my insurance. Will not be returning to see this doctor.

Dr. Harjee and her staff were very friendly and helpful. My husband and I came in with very little notice to be treated for upper respiratory infection (We do not have a regular family doctor we go to) and they were very accommodating. I would definitely go back.

The office was very busy so I was able to be seen by a different doctor (his name started with a T) but he was wonderful! Very personable and thorough. He understood my concerns and was willing to take the timeit took to figure out the problem and how to solve it. I had a great experience and will be back if need be.

My office visit was fine, other than the fact that I was told my insurance wouldn't be taken unless I made this office my primary care provider. The nurses told me it was "my choice" to release my records to themand make them my primary care provider. I only did so because I had already been examined at that point and wasn't able to cover the visit without insurance. I later called my insurance who told me I can see whichever doctor I want, they don't need to be listed as my primary care physician. I felt tricked into releasing my information and as a result will not be going back.

I felt like she did not take my concerns seriously and challenged what I was saying. She was kind of stoic with me as well, not super friendly..she seemed to shrug away a lot of what I was saying. Maybe itwas just a bad day for her, I know she did have to have some kind of emergency that delayed her. You never know what people are dealing with so I'm going to keep my follow up and hopefully my next visit will be better.

I was praying for a professional doctor with great bed side manners, and a doctor who was a great listener and God has heard my prayers. There are so many doctors out here that are good,but when you leave you feelrushed.I pray I continue to have a great relationship with Dr. Gulshan Harjee. Being a cancer survivor ,it's important to find a professional Doctor. I was also happy with the staff.Everyone seem to care and was patient when they were doing there job. Thanks again for a great visit!!

This physician is probably a great cultural fit for the people from the South Asian and Pakistani communities who the practice she's with seems to serve. But for people who don't like to haggle or deal with aggressive over-selling of services,or deal with bragging about credentials and status, Dr. Harjee might be a bit of a cultural shock.

Dr. Harjee was very straightforward during the appointment. She was a little intimidating, but still nice. It was a little difficult to understand her at first. That subsided quickly though. She seemed genuinely concerned about my well being.
