I really appreciate that Dr. Iftikhar was able to see me today- I'm a new patient and she saw me the same day! Jessica was so helpful when I arrived and Nadia was so kind and thorough while 5aking my medicalhistory. Dr. Iftikhar spent a lot of time going over my history, meds, and concerns- she was so kind and explained everything. I can't say enough good things about Dr. Iftikhar and her staff!

This doctor I thought was very friendly when I first picked her. Eventually I realized she doesn’t really care much about her patients. You can never speak to Dr. Iftikhar over the phone, because she doesn’t take calls. Her nurse forgetsto send proscriptions, she also will writes things in your medical charts and records that she didn’t do. & if you leave a voicemail you won’t receive a call back. Unless you call again. Really disappointed this doctor turned out this way. This doctor also makes comments that are inappropriate. I would never recommend my family & friends to her.

Dr. Iftikhar is very kind and helpful. She answers any questions I have and does her best to solve any problems I'm having. The staff is great, as well. I started going to this doctor's office after being disappointed with myprevious primary care physician and office. I'm really glad I switched. Unfortunately, I am moving soon, so I will have to find another doctor in my new location. Caring, informative doctors are not always easy to find; I really hope I can find another physician like Dr. Iftikhar.

Dr. Iftikhar relieved so much anxiety I had been having through her usual comforting explanations and even more by listening intently to my long explanations of certain issues I had been experiencing. I left the office almost like a differentperson, with less anxiety or concern and so much more hope and positivity:-)

This is by far the worst doctor I've ever seen. When I told the doctor about my medical concerns, she laughed at me. When I told her about my concerns, she tried to deny it saying that it was in myhead. When I told her that my medical concerns were not a laughing matter, she asked me to leave and said "we are not compatible." When I walked out of her office, she told her staff "that patient doesn't like me" and her staff started snickering. I would say her bedside manner is extremely poor.

Dr. Iftikhar was incredibly warm and friendly. She asked relevant questions, sought clarifying input, and offered suggestions for improving my health without making me feel bad. I appreciated her demeanor and am very happy to have found mynew doctor in Houston. The office staff was very personable and made the paperwork easy as well. I did not have a long wait and was pleased to be in and out in a very reasonable amount of time, compared to other providers. The office was clean, well kept, and felt far less "cold" than many other doctors' offices. Overall, it was a great visit and I highly recommend her.

Absolutely superb treatment and care! Friendly, warm and welcoming staff (a wekcome change to the many sour-faced, 'Mother Superior-I-am-doing-you-a-massive-favor' types I have encountered so often in Houston! ) After three years ofliving here I have finally found a family doctor whom I feel totally comfortable with. Dr. Iftikhar is fantastic- she is hands-on, extremely thorough, and she is fully engaged with the patient in front of her. I have heard about her from two friends who raved about the level of care they received there, and I was not disappointed! Seriously impressed!

I moved to Houston a year and a half ago, and had to find a new doctor. I am so blessed to have found Dr. Iftikhar, and the Texas Family Practice. I immediately felt comfortable and have been treated like familyever since. The medical assistants/reception, Glena and Leah (not sure my spellings are correct:/), are always so welcoming and able to fit me in at the drop of a hat:)

Dr. Huma Iftikhar and whole staff at Texas Family Practice were very friendly. I usually hate going to the Dr. because I hate the wait time then feeling like the doctor is in a rush when they are performing my exam.This was not my experience at Texas Family Practice I had an appointment and waited maybe 10 mins to be taken into a room. The doctor was not in a rush which made me feel better about the diagnosis. She made sure to take her time during the exam answered all my questions and made me feel comfortable.

The doctor is very experienced and helpful. She listens to your problem calmly, Whereas Nurse is not so much Friendly. I do not write reviews but after today's experience, I had to write one. She makes you think like you aredumb and kind of very insulting the way she talks to you. I forgot something and called back, and her response started with rude 'I told you so'. Even though I love the doctor because of the nurse I am not planning to go back again.

Dr Iftikhar was friendly and seemed to listen to me during my visit. The nurse was extremely unpleasant though. Follow up calls by the nurse were equally uncomfortable and I have many questions unanswered. My symptoms remain and I do notknow what is wrong with me. The doctor is not interested, so I will be looking for another doctor.

the wait was long but the nurse was very apologetic and explained that there was an issue they were dealing with in the office. That's the reason for the wait review, but otherwise, Dr. Iftikhar was great. Very compassionate and listened.The nurses were kind. I look forward to her being my family doctor for many years.

My office visit was to establish a primary care doctor since the retirement of my previous one. I like the easy excess to make appointments was impressed with the caring atmosphere of the office staff. The doctor saw me right awayand I had no wait time. She asked what were my concerns and we went over all my medications and reasons for doses, etc. Went over side affects in case I was not aware and alternatives. She also questioned me about issues I had not considered to ensure that my health was good. My age was considered and advise given to me to ensure I have a healthy lifestyle. I was very comfortable with her immediately. Excellent doctor and am recommending her to family members.

Never got an answer with my issue. The doctor relayed messages through the nurse and didn't speak with me in regards to my results. Blood work came back fine but I am still sick. Nurse brushed me off and told me to go to a neurologist. I wouldn't recommend them.
