To be honest, I wasn't impressed, because when I asked the Dr about my concern she was kind of rude and stopped me, saying, "we are out of time". I think she should know that time is not important, listening tothe patient and making her comfortable when she leaves is important!!!

I was disappointed that I was charged a very high deposit for the visit, which I was not warned about in advance and my copay is normally very low. They told me I would be reimbursed by my insurance within 4weeks. It is now around 10 weeks since my visit and I have called 3 times to check up on the refund and they are now quoting me 2 more weeks. I have yet to receive my refund. The office visit was satisfactory, she was professional and treated my condition. But the frustration with this financial aspect will make it unlikely that I will return.

She has a very, very narrow approach to medicine and it seems lets her own life choices drastically inform how she engages with her patients. Because I had a college degree and she really seems to value education, she told methat I was "better than this" and needed to be "better than my mother" who I also indicated suffered from anxiety issues. This was all within 5-10 minutes of meeting me. I had never seen her before, and there was almost no intake process where they got a history of my issues or family issues, with the exception of the information ZocDoc requested. I met with her for about 15 minutes total, but within the first 5 minutes she had already decided that I needed to be put on prescription medication immediately, which was her only recommended course of action. I would not recommend this doctor if you're looking for someone to present you with options to make the best choice for you, show empathy, and allow you to feel better after leaving than you did before you got there.

I've only seen her once, but she was helpful and understanding. The only thing I found difficult about this visit was the check in. I arrived at the appointment on time but the doctor only had one assistant so I hadto wait for about 20 minutes until I was assisted. Other than that, the appointment was informative and much appreciated.

We disagreed about whether I should remain on a particular medication, so I may not see her again. This was my first visit, but I will tell you this: despite my not seeing her again, I would recommend her to friendsand family. She is kind, caring, compassionate, and knowledgable. Even if I didn't feel strongly about this medication, I would definitely see her again. She is a great doctor.

Dr. Maryam was courteous and knowledgeable. She listened to what I had to say and based responses upon this and her experience. She also stated truthfully when things were outside her sphere of knowledge, for example when We discussed herbaltreatments I had been taking. She was very personable and east to talk to. I look forward to seeing her again and recommended her to my wife as her PCP.
