Just went to my first appt yesterday. So far, the staff is very friendly and Dr Houmam is very nice. I’mhoping it’ll continue to be a great experience. The wait was very long though and the waiting room is very small, but other than that, it all went very well.

How do I keep this short!? Someone give this team a trophy! Seriously! Great Dr! Very professional, easy to voice concernsto, great friendly front desk staff, nice friendly nurses! At my last ob, the nurse didn’t take my blood pressure and just wrote down a random number, and my wait time was alwaysss 1 to 3 hours! Guess what my nurse here went to ask and double check she took my blood pressure ! Thank you! Best of all .... are you ready ! My appt was at 11am. I did get there 15 mins early. When I got in my car to leave it was 11:23!!!! Holy cow right! And that was checking in, weight, blood pressure, past history recap, ultra sound, questions time, solution to my problem, given a prescription, and made a follow up appt! I have no words, crazy right. Obviously I highly recommend.... wish I would of found them sooner seriously.

Went to Dr. Hakeem for a follow-up about an operation I’ve been recommended and he was very kind in answering all my questions. I’m scheduling him to do a hysteroscopy and laparoscopy.

The staff and Dr. were very nice. Paper work was digital which made it easier to complete and once I was taken back I was seen right away. Other offices usually just shuffle you to the back to make room in the waiting room. It was a nice surprise.

It was my first time and last time with him. He only had about 5 minutes to spend with me and then sent a mid-wife to do the examination instead of doing it himself...he gave me a diagnosis of infertility dueto an appendectomy I had years ago, but I have only been ttc for 6 months... it was a very bold and threatening statement that I need surgery after meeting me for 5 minutes. Stressful

The staff was beyond rude! Made me come back in the afternoon after I had an appt. Scheduled at 930am. They opened the 10 minutes late and had everyone waiting outside. What made it worse was when they did open thedoor the lady had an attitude. Everyone sat in the waiting room for ANOTHER 30 minutes before anyone was called. You could just here the office staff laughing away while everyone was there waiting. I will NEVER come to this location again. I will however go the the one off 151 now since I live right by sea world. Hopefully the staff is better at that location.

All my questions were answered and the staff were really friendly. They were running a bit behind, but that’s fairly common for OB/Gyns (in my experience), and, to their credit, they worked through lunch to make sure everyone was seen. Iwas happy with my experience. **If Zocdoc didn’t force me to give 3 stars for wait time, I wouldn’t. I waited 2+ hours at the previous gyn I was seeing, and never once saw the gyn I’d scheduled an appointment with. I felt like my wait at this appointment was reasonable. Some people require longer appointments, and you can’t always gauge how long it’ll take to treat someone, at the time they’re booking.***

After being seen at another Ob/Gyn & having an awful experience I was referred to Dr. Hakeem. I totally expected to have the same horrible experience. As a new patient I did wait over an hour but when I was calledback the MA took her time w/ me going over every perscription. She was meticulous about making sure my chart perfect & correct. I was then taken back to meet Dr. Hakeem. I was made to feel as if I was the only patient there. He first talked w/ me about my situation & then did a sonogram. He explained everything to me. Im so comfortable w/ Dr. Hakeem & glad I found him.

Dr. Hakeem is such a great doctor. I always stuck to women gynecologists, but I decided to try a male gynecologist . That’s when Dr. Hakeem showed up on my Zocdoc. I’m so glad he appeared on it, because he’s byfar the best gynecologist I’ve gone to. He is a good listener and makes you feel really comfortable. He asks the right questions and attends to your needs. I definitely recommend him.

Dr.Hakeem was very nice and informative. He had a delivery during my appointment but still made it by to greet me. The midwife there was also friendly, sweet, and very informative. The only issue was the receptionist. Upon arrival she wasvery cold, didn’t smile, and almost looked like she hated her job. I went to the wrong window to do my next appointment she just sat there holding the card out in the next window until I approached, no ‘hey this is the window over here’ or anything. I smiled at her, laughed to ease the tension, and said thank you have a nice day. Nothing from her. Not even a bye or here’s the exit. Had to find the exit while she slammed the window shut and walked away.

Wanted my iud out. He said he couldn't find it after I waited over 2 hours for them to call me in when it was only 2 people ahead of me. Then he said I needed my IUD surgically removed afteronly looking for 1 minute. I went home and felt my IUD string, so I pulled it out myself.

It would be nice if they would take the trash out in the restroom and made the restroom look nice. Also, the people in the waiting room made the office look ghetto for a first timer. That's the reason why iswitched doctors in the first place. Over all he is great just don't like the waiting area.

I wasn't impressed with the staff. I arrived before my appointment time to fill out paperwork but didn't get the paperwork until after my scheduled time. It was on a super slow computer and took forever. I was then put ina waiting room for a long time and the mid wife did my examination. The doctor came in for less than 3 minutes to just talk. I had to call twice to get my results and the second time the nurse gave me my results and didn't seem to know much. I also needed a referral for a mammogram and it needed to be diagnostic rather than a screening and they were reluctant to listen to the imaging center to get it changed. I will probably find a different Doctor. They seemed to over book for what they were able to handle and my appointment should have been the first of the morning.
