She's extremely quick and acts warm, but couldn't care less about you - just wants to get you in and out.I had some concerns about my condition that were quickly dismissed. I've never seen her for more than five minutes at a time.

Very patronizing and unhelpful. Refused to listen to my medical concerns then rushed me out the door. You can tell she does not care about you or your health just wants to collect your copay and send you off. Now I know why it’s so easy to get an appointment with her.

I would not recommend Dr Farooq. When I asked questions she said “I don’t know” and that was it. I expressed my concern that I wasn’t losing weight and she told me to restrict my calories so I’m starving “it’s the only way to lose weight”. What kind of doctor tells you to basically starve yourself??

My daughter, who is in another state, needed to see a doctor asap, but did not want to go to an urgent care. I was able to book the appointment online, and fill out the forms online. My daughter was able to be seen, received a presciption, and was treated so well by Dr. Farooq! Thank you for taking care of my daughter while I am not there!

So glad I decided to see Dr. Farooq. After paperwork, I only waited ten minutes. She looked over my old meds from previous doc and explained the problems with it. She prescribed me new meds and explained everything. Gave me some samples, week long worth.

This doctor was horrible. Not only did she rush through exam. She was so RUDE! I would NEVER Recommend this woman for anything! This apt was a complete waste of time. One of the worst experiences ever. Dr. Marlene Rocha Farooq get a clue. Any successful business requires repeat customers/patients and be reading your reviews looks like you dont have many people saying nice things! I just wish i would of read reviews before wasting my time! Next stop yelp

She seemed nice but she worked as if she was rushed or as if she didn't want to spend the time to know you. Mind you, I was a new patient, and this does not give off a good impression. The waiting room was in fact empty and I'm sure I was the last patient of the day, as I've picked the last time slot of the day. I'm a nurse so I know I was entitled to 15 minutes for an office visit, that in fact is what our insurances pay for...a fifteen minute office visit even 25 for a consult . Our conversation was lackluster and very short. She talked on and on and cut me off as I was telling her important facts about my medical history. I think a history of breast cancer in my family is important to know? Thankfully this was only an emergency prescription visit for a refill. So no, I don't have plans to visit this practice again. Her MA seemed lovely. Polite demeanor. The doctor however shows no compassion or interest in what you have to say...
