I took my 1 year old to see Dr. Sharif about what appeared to be a skin irritation. She was very kind, answered all questions, and had him tested for various types of allergies. She explained the results and provided clearand easy to follow instructions/suggestions. I'm truly glad that we went to her based off of the really good reviews she has received thus far. The staff there was also really kind and friendly.

I went in to see Dr. Sharif with high expectations because of her positive reviews only to leave disappointed. Because my appt was later in the day, I knew I was the last patient for her to see so I didnot appreciate how rushed she went through the initial medical history examination/ my first ever allergy testing. I get that you want to go home, but at least be thorough! I spent more time waiting for her to see me in the room (half hour) than she did with me for the whole visit. How does that even make sense?! She didn't even have a patient to see before me. At least apologize for the long wait. Then, she had zero bedside manners as she talked to me in a condescending demeanor. I get that I asked a lot of questions but I shouldn't be judged for the type of questions I am asking or the request to have an Epi-pen practice tutorial as I just found out I'm deadly allergic to a specific allergen. I also told her it was my first time seeing an allergist because I didn't experience any problems growing up with sensitivity to anything until after college. The way she looked at me and treated me when I said that in the beginning really took me back because there was no understanding on her behalf. Okay, whatever. Her pictures of a kind personality are false, sadly because I got none of that. Maybe her demeanor is better with kids, I don't know but she makes me not want to go back to see her. Lastly, she was on a power trip with the wonderful and helpful staff at the clinic. The nurse, medical assistant, and medical billing specialist were so attentive and kinder than Dr. Sharif. I thought I just caught her on a bad day or something but Dr. Sharif is just as rude to her staff! The nurse had requested and was approved to leave early but Dr. Sharif rudely insisted that the nurse stay to do my breathing test. The poor nurse was about to leave the door, folks! The test was also something Dr. Sharif is more than capable of doing herself. When the nurse was hesitant and explained her situation/need to leave early, Dr. Sharif didn't care, forced her to stay to do my test that Dr. Sharif could've done, and then proceeded to talk bad about the nurse during my allergy test. That was so unprofessional. During the test, Dr. Sharif couldn't find a timer so she said, "Sorry, our clinic is a bit hectic because our nurse has to leave early." I was literally the only the patient in the clinic and you don't need a nurse to do the tests that you went to medical school for and to get you a timer.

I went to see Dr. Naba due to seasonal allergies and for allergy testing. Dr. Naba was very thorough in her examination and you can tell she is committed to finding a solution. I've seen several allergists before and she hasgiven me information both verbally as well as documented that other physicians have not. She is very approachable and has great bedside manner. I would highly recommend a consultation if you have any allergy issues.

Dt Sharif was incredible. She took the time to listen and asked questions. I didn't feel rushed or like I was part of a treadmill of patients. She even called personally to follow up. I've never had that kind of service from a physician!!!!
