Waist of my time
Omg....he was so refreshing... reminded me of the doctors of the 70's & 80's...truly a modern day Marcus Welby
Dr. Kidwai was extremely personable and open to answering many of my concerns. Though it was a bit of a wait in the office, he took the time to talk with me beyond the appointment as I was his last for day. I felt like I was talking to a knowledgeable friend, rather than a doctor. He was thorough and easy to understand when describing what happened, and asked about more than just symptoms (lifestyle, family background, etc). I would definitely recommend him.
He really took his time seeing me and listening to my concerns, I didnt feel rushed at all and he's really personable as well!
I don't know how to comment. am totally confused. I just went for PENNDOT DMV form filling. They spoke for one hour and said that we will post more amount of bill for a general check up as insurance will anyhow BCBS will pay. I am still worried what bills they will be posting, if in case my insurance denies. I wouldn't have gone. Next time I will not go. Doctor is very kind in speaking and treating. But my main concern is the claims what they project is the fear factor.
Dr. Kidwai was very friendly and professional. He spent a great deal of time asking questions and trying to understand my symptoms and history. He was very thorough. I was pleased with my first visit and will definitely be returning. The nurse, who was taking vitals and running the front desk, was very sweet and helpful.
This is the first time in my 48 year journey that I have ever met and felt completely comfortable around a doctor in my life. Doctor Kidwai I thank you for that. Very knowledgable and friendly, great doctors visit!
Excellent and thorough PCP. Takes time to talk and listen to you.
He is great doctor
Very nice doctor. Took the time to make sure he heard all of my issues, talked me through them. He is concerned with making a well thought through, educated diagnosis and cares for the whole patient in terms of medical, mental and even financial well being.
He didn't respect my time . My appointment was in 10 am and I came 9:56 and because I made my appointment by zocdoc his Nurse told my he will see me at 12 am. And I wrote my name as first one in the names list Now I am so sad , I very sick and I am Diabetic and pressure. He didn't take care of me.
he never gave me a physical the only thing he did was have me stand on a scale and take my pressure that was it and the visit was over within 20 minutes
I felt very comfortable and as if I had been a patient of his for years
Nurses at the reception were not professional!
Dr. Kidwai is one of the most consumate medical professionals I have encountered. He listens intently, offers sound advice and genuinely cares for the welfare of his patients. I highly recommend him as a primary care physician.
Dr. Kidwai took time to talk to me. It seemed he saw me as a person rather than just another patient to get in and out of the door. He was friendly and funny. I would definitely recommend him to anyone.
Great bedside manner, very good doctor. I've visited for a few check ups and a sick visit, and all went very well.
He is a very good professional doctor an nice
Dr. Kidwai is nice and patient, he answered all my questions clearly and he charges very reasonably.
Well knowledgable Doc
Very professional, thorough, and willing to engage in dialogue and explain things to the patient. Great bedside manner and overall a fantastic doctor.
It was a very excellent
I liked him very much.
The Dr is fine but trying to get any follow up information from the staff is next to impossible. 3 days and 5 phone calls and I still can't get the results of a simple x ray.
Physician was very professional. Allowed me to interact in discussion and took my preferences into consideration. Office staff was stellar. Would recommend this office and physician to those seeking a primary care physician.
Dr. Kidwai is great.
Actually, he is the best doctor I have ever seen.
YMeThe good docror K was extremely helpful and put my mind at ease as he explained the course of action. Dr. K is on top of many new and FDA approved meds and treatments. glad to have Dr Kidwai as my new primary care physician.
excellent doctor; highly recommend.
He was awesome , expert .
The best doctor ever seen. thank you.
I felt comfortable and glad.
The wait was a bit long, but it's a small office and I'd much rather have a doctor take their time then rush me out of the door immediately. Great experience and I'd highly, highly recommend!
Very good doctor. He was very pleasent and informative.
highly recommended. I really found my primary health doctor.
I would highly recommend Dr. Shoaib. he is very helpful and understanding. He takes his time with the patient and a very good listener. he takes the time to explain to you the reasons behind the tests, and makes certain you understand your results. I would definitely recommend him to my family and friends .
An excellent Dr
I was waiting more than one hour to sign one paper.
The best doctor I have ever seen before
Very frank and informative. Was looking for a primary care doc. Think I might have one.
Dr. Kidwai is a wonderful doctor who is very comforting and thorough. Highly recommended!
Dr. Kidwai was very friendly and funny, which I like in a doctor. He also seemed very smart, and was able to answer any and all questions I had for him. The wait was not excessive at all, and the ladies working at the front desk were competent and friendly. I've definitely found my new primary care physician, and would absolutely recommend him to everyone I know.
The staff members were nice. Everyone seems to know what they're doing, and Dr. Kidwai is a friendly guy, easy to talk to.
I would recommend him , he was very attentive , we discussed every concern I had plus some ,.Overall he just cares about the patients health which means hecares about the person he is a good doctor.
Very impressed. He spent nearly an hour talking to me about the health issues(that i came to see him about) and my general well being . I have not had any doctor spend that kind of time with me...
I highly recommend dr. Shoaib. From my own experience, he is very helpful and understanding.
The consultation went well, he was very easy to talk to and genuinely cares about your well being. Wait time was about an hour tho, very frustrating.
First visit to Dr Kidwai was as expected with no problems. But when I arrived for my second appointment I found that neither the doctor nor his assistant showed up. The office was completely closed / locked. Ordinarily I would suspect that I made the mistake, however there were other people who had also arrived for their appointments and were made to wait. Other medical professionals in the building indicated this was a common occurrence.
I sincerely enjoyed my visit to Dr. Kidwai's office! He has such a great sense of humor! He's also very patient to explain things in detail when asked questions. Awesome doctor.
Doctor or business man? This guy was a theif from the start with his words. He is purely trying to make money off of services and not your well-being. He wanted a battery of unrelated tests run for one simple infection I had which was curable with anti-biotics.
Great interpersonal skills
remind me of an old doctor I had for about thirty years.
he is a great doctor with a great sense of humor and courtesy.
Very nice, quick, helpful, and easy
There was a rain storm that morning, which caused the delay. Otherwise, Dr Kidwai was extremely pleasant and professional, and very knowledgeable. I think I found my new primary doctor!
Dr. Kidwai is very knowledgeable and a pleasant to be treated by. He informed to get on some dietary supplements which surpassed what was needed for me to be in optima health. He's very informative and I would recommend anyone to visit him if they want a doctor that is about honesty and integrity.
The Dr is great and takes a lot of time explaining you everything. However, wait time was a bit too long and they do need to change the TV channel in the waiting room. The trash TV is annoying and makes the waiting even worse.
Professional and kind
My appointment was a great !!
Excellent I will recommend him to friends and family!!!!
Great, he was friendly and personable. Everything was clean. I've never left a doctors office in such a good mood.
very professional, good listener, and insightful of patient needs and expectation.
I called back because my antibiotics did not work and he never returned my call. The front desk girl is aloof as well and there is no organization in this office. Also i felt like he was judging me during my history.
Great skills and very professional Very nice doc
Wait time was long, almost an hour, but once i saw the doctor, he took his time to explain all my concerns thoroughly. Besides the long wait, I would highly recommend and will be back.
Once I saw him it was great. The wait time as well as his office staff was horrible. Great doctor, horrible support staff....they lost my records from an earlier visit.
Great... . Found my primary doctor
Hes very good.
Very professional, talkative, informative and has a vast knowledge that contributes to his ability to perform his duty as a doctor. Highly reccomended.
terrible experience, do not see this doctor.
It was a great visit. Quick and fast and he is a pretty cool guy
fantastic doctor.....prefers to support none medication based therapies through diet and activity, alternative options than just writing a script for lipitor........
Let me start off by saying Dr. Kidwai is a knowledgeable doctor and when you actually get to see him provides sound, straightforward advice. His practice, however, appears to be mismanaged. I've had four appointments in this office. Each time I've made an appointment its usually preceeded by blood work, whether or not you request it. This might seem like a small thing, but it becomes a major inconvenience when making the trip out to the doctor is not convenient. Usually, when I make an appointment to see the doctor I expect to see the doctor, not his assistants or nurses (one of whom could not explain to me what the numbers on a blood pressure reading actually mean). Its my guess that this office opens up such a large block time slots to get people into the office only to provide "blood work" services (knowing Dr. Kidwai is not available), thus necessitating an additional visit (and co-pay) to see the actual doctor. Dr Kidwai is a good doctor, he needs to work in a practice that is better managed. The current setup does not work and further complicates a healthcare system already fraught with frustration and inefficiency.
If you're looking for a holistic doctor, he would be a decent choice. He's very friendly and enthusiastic, but also clearly overwhelmed with patients. The first time I went there I was late, and that's my fault, but then they kept me waiting over an hour, until I told them I was leaving because I couldn't wait any longer. There were also other patients there who arrived on time but were kept waiting for unacceptable amounts of time. The main reason I would never go back there myself, however, is that I had lab work done and they never sent me the results.
Well I would like to use Dr. Kidwai as my primary doctor.
Felt as though it was a scam
even tho dr.kidwai couldnt perscibe me my medication,hes such a down to earth doctor.hes office staff are amazing and i ended up talking for about 30mins...hes not just going to write you perscriptions and send you out.he mentioned having relationships with each patient and i felt like i established one when he asked me about my growing up etc and took interest in helping me.im totally going to make him my pcp for health concerns
Dr. was very nice and seemed very knowledgeable. One problem was that the same girl working reception was taking vitals, so she was answering the phone while taking vitals. I think that is very unprofessional and have never seen that before in a Doctor's office. She also failed to give us proper directions and gave me the wrong address (!) when I called and told her we were lost.
Very informative and feels genuinely concerned about you. I rarely visit doctors unless I have to but I will keep coming back here for my check-ups. Thanks!
Great doctor, very attentive, cool guy
Dr. Kidwai is amazing! I've been seeing him for over a year and he's great at what he does.
I found the office to be very unprofessional and felt slightly uncomfortable as the nurse who was working at the front desk was also the nurse having to take my vitals and administer a TB test. This might not have bothered me so much if she did not have to answer the phone in her pocket while she was prepping my arm for the injection. I came to the office based on other ZocDoc reviews but did not feel that Dr. Kidwai was actually listening to me as we reviewed by medical history during my visit. I was also frustrated as the doctor knew of my paperwork that he needed to sign off on when my test was read for my job, but they scheduled me to return on a day when the doctor was not in. I had to return on a third day, weeks later, when my form was ready to be picked up. I am writing this review almost 9 months later as there is still a billing issue I am trying to sort out with my insurance, as the billing department billed for out of network service when this doctor is in fact in network.
He is awesome! So down to earth and makes understanding everything so much easier.
Dr. Kidwai's office doesn't look like a real doctor's office. He also doesn't conduct himself like a real doctor. He is passionate about his beliefs and very unconventional. It may or may not work for you. It didn't work for me.
Very knowledgeable! Actually takes time to talk with you, which I find extremely rare!
Very good doctor, nice and real profesional
I was very impressed with Dr kidwai. He was very caring and knowledgeable. He also gave me very good advice pertaining to my daughter's health. He is my new family doctor
He is excellent! He answers all of your questions. He genuinely cares about your health and does not carelessly give random drugs. He prescribes medication only when necessary. He is not like many MDs that do not know a lot about nutrition, he is very knowledgeable about overall health.
Absolutely the best office visit I've ever had! I went in as a new patient and was pleasantly surprised with the amount of time Dr. Kidwai spends with each patient. You can definitely expect a wait, but it is worth it to be seen by a truly exceptional professional.
Dr. Kidwai is great! He actually spent time with me to get to know me and is the first doctor I've seen to actually inquire about my diet and lifestyle.
Dr. Kidwai is very nice and personable. However, his front desk staff make it near impossible for anyone to know that. Long waits, poor follow-up response, and general laziness hides a fantastic doctor. I have trouble wanting to recommend him purely because I don't want to subject anyone I know to his horrible administration!
The wait was a little long but Dr. Kidwai was great. He seemed very interested in me as a patient and I didn't feel like I was rushed or was bothering him like with some doctors. He listened and was very attentive to any problems I mentioned.
I was very happy when I left my appointment with Dr. Kidwai. One of the most caring doctors I have ever met. He gets a 10 in my book :)
The wait is always significant for Dr Kidwai, but it is worth it. He genuinely cares about his patients overall health & well being. His approach is holistic, blended and well balanced. If every doctor were like Dr Kidwai, The Country would be much healthier.
Dr. Kidwai was very attentive and personable. Seemed to genuinely care about my well being and offered advice outside of traditional medicine.
You might have to wait a long time, but only because he spends a long time with you. He is very easy to talk to, and I find that I agree with many of his opinions/procedures.
I love how Dr. Kidwai has lots of natural suggestions as solutions to problems.
He was friendly, attentive, and very thorough. After listening to my concerns, he ran a battery of tests. I was surprised by how many tests he ran for my blood work! I appreciate his dedication.
His ability to make you feel comfortable is great. He is very informed about the well-being of the patient. He is very affable and helpful and I will continue to visit him as my doctor.
Dr. Kidwai was excellent. He was very informative, and had great bedside manner.
Thourough and very informative.
Excellent! Spends time with the patient and educates patient about the problem. Also discusses alternative medicine. Highly recommend.
Friendly and personable - great bedside manner. Will definitely see again.
Excellent bedside manner.
He is very intelligent and a thorough professional.It was my first visit and I am really very impressed by his courtesy,intelligence and professionalism.I would highly recommend him as a personal physician.
Professional yet personable manner. Good laymans explanation of medical information and clear concise easy to follow directions.
Very personable and took the time to get to know me. Not in a rush like most doctors seem to be.
Very sharp, intelligent doctor that actually engages you in a dialogue in your health. I was also impressed with his knowledge of alternative medicine.
Best Doc I've ever been too...Good staff as well.
I only had to wait about 15-20 minutes before I was seen. He was excellent, professional, and very knowledgeable.
He is very easy to talk to and he listens to everything you may say. Makes the atmosphere very comfortable.
