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...

I went in because my migraines have been getting worse. I know I have migraines, I let the the doctor know I knew about my migraines. My visit with her was literally 30 seconds, and her only response was "You have migraines, have a great day". My old family doctor was incredible. He at least spent more than 30 seconds with us to be courteous. Unfortunately our old family doctor closed down and I had to search for a new one.

She was impeccably professional, knowledgeable, and friendly. She had the answers, responded to what research I had already done, and gave me precautionary measures to handle things in case things went south. She also was very cognizant of the pricing environment and recommended several options that would be equally effective. All in all, she went above and beyond all my expectations.

Waited over an hour my appointment was at 11:45 the man behind me had an appointment at 12:00 they saw him first?? Once the doctor saw me, I asked several questions, and her answer to everything was I dunno, everyone is different. Asking her about side effects of birth control. Previously I asked if hair loss was a symptom which she said yes it's normal, and it would grow back. Than after taking the pill for 5 months, loosing an excessive amount of hair, I questioned her again about it, and her response was I've never heard or seen that happen from birth control. Asked her what she would recommend, again I dunno. Rushed me to leave bad experience. Total waist of time, learned more from Google, never coming back.

I had to go to Marlene because she was the only doctor listed on my medical plan. I haven't been to a doctor in over a year because I didn't have insurance. I was overjoyed to finally see someone to treat my needs. I walked in, she said immediately that she didn't have time to see me for a physical and basic exam (Okkkk, I thought, why did I make an appointment then?). I asked her if she could refill my medication and she said, nope! You shouldn't have this medication for acne, that is not what it is used for. I begin to tell her that I was on it for two years, and my amazing dermatologist who no longer works with Kaiser, specially recommended a treatment that worked for my face and she shut down every medication I needed a refill on. She said she would only prescribe one medication and I told her it didn't work for my face. That was the end of that. Then she told me to get blood work done at another location before seeing me for anything else. I was probably in the room for five minutes. Not friendly, not helpful, and no bed side manner at all. I will not be coming back.

She was very sweet at first, but then seemed very rushed. She barely spent any time with me and I hadn't been to a doctor in a while so I had a few simple questions. She was literally trying to get out of the door as i asked her things and she just told me "you can make another appointment at the front desk" I didn't really like that and it made me feel like I didn't want to see her again, so I probably won't. I'm looking for a permanent doctor since I've never had one and this didn't really inspire me to chose her.

I've been her patient for three years. Iriabel the nurse used to make it so pleasant going to this office. Since she left its gone down hill. I drive far in rush hour traffic to see this doctor. The doctor is brilliant but she was so rude and did not care about me. She was late an hour and said to the nurse that if I want to see her I will have to wait. I waited an hour and she came in and didn't even apologize. She made it seem like I was being unreasonable. Ironically enough I was singing her praises to her nurse an hour before hand and has always given her fantastic reviews. But she basically said with an attitude and lack of care, go see another doctor. I did not fight her, but in the end she reiterated and looked me up and down like I was worth nothing and said, yes you should go to another doctor this is not going to work. Wow, I am speechless. I feel bad for her nurse now, she is so positive and sweet. She made me so mad, but maybe she was having a bad day but there is no excuse for being so unprofessional and disrespectful.

Very rude and clueless staff, they didn't even know how to take my blood pressure. Dr. Farooq only prescribes medication for 3 months intervals so that you constantly have to make new appointments for the same medication. She will not refill prescriptions, even for simple birth control that you've had for years, so that she can make money off your visits/ your insurance. She only see's you for 5 minutes and does not listen to your concerns. Dr. Farooq prescribed me allergy medication even though I don't have allergies and wasn't complaining about anything related to allergies. ?? what kind of sham is this doctors office?

The receptionist was horrible unprofessional. She was having a personal conversation while I stood there waiting to be checked in. I sat in the room for over 30 minutes waiting for the Doctor, who was not even in the office at the time of my appointment. She had horrible bedside manner and seemed in a rush to get me out. I would not recommend her.
