I saw the Dr. on Friday afternoon for injuries from an auto accident. He was fine and explained well the situation and prognosis. The staff/office set up is an entirely different issue. His office is one flight down and I hadto go back and forth to the main reception several times for paperwork, X-rays, etc. Dr. Farakh gave me two prescriptions which I was told were being electronically sent to my pharmacist. When I went to pick them up Saturday morning I was told they had no record of them. I called the office which I found out was closed and then called the 24 hour service # on the voicemail which no one answered. Very unprofessional.

Dr. Farakh was great, but his front desk staff on the other hand especially the office manager have the most ugliest and disgusting personality. Stay away from the Brooklyn office, visit the doctor at the other locations. I will never recommendthis office until the office manager is replaced. I feel bad for employees that have to work with her in daily basis.

I? have visited this office in the past and recently. Overall, the Dr.’s bedside manner met my expectations. The staff handles a high volume of patients, quickly , they get your needs handled. Most of the staff was efficient and addressedmy request. However, if you are the type of patient that requires an abundance of courtesy and concern, this may not be your best fit. Note: The intake paperwork is lengthy and detailed so be sure to give yourself extra time. indicate all your details their.

The initial reception from the ladies behind the desk was warm until I was told I couldn't be seen after I started filling out paperwork. After about thirty minutes back and forth, they finally got it sorted out after I requestedto speak to the manager. It was honestly only better after I saw the doctor who was very professional.

I hated it! I received a referral from my PCP and that wasn't enough, they required a script but never told me that when I made the appointment. It was so packed, I waited 2 hours and the staff members wereunpleasant. They don't greet you and act like they don't want to help you. The doctor is really great but to get to him, it's dreadful. I wouldn't recommend to anyone.

The staff at the desk is Awful . I never complain first of all the first appointment I made they called and said the doctor was in surgery so I couldn't be seen and of coarse the holidays were the nextfew days so my daughter couldn't be seen for days when I asked if she would be ok her nasty response (Sheila ) I'm not a doctor I don't know . Then I made another appointment because my daughter was in pain and they told me to bring her in on Monday I made the appointment and showed up only to be told the doctors gone I asked too please someone else because my 10 year old daughter is in pain shot down . Then I asked them is she going to be ok I'm concerned because she is supposed to be able to walk and she faint tgere response I don't know I'm not a doctor !!!!! I am well aware of this but you work in a doctors office at least make an attempt to help us . FYI the day I came and was turned away they had bags in hand ready to leave . Then I showed up today and was greeted with looks of annoyance . Doctor is nice but his staff not at all too bad

It took me half a dozen doctors to get to a doctor who knew what he was doing. Dr. Farakh has a great bedside manner. He didn't rush me in and out. He examined me and ordered x-rays, which were takenon the premises. After he read the x-rays he was right on point with his diagnosis. Really glad I took a chance on another doctor. His office was packed and from what I witnessed, he took time with each patient. Now I understand why I waited a while before I was seen by him. I don't mind waiting for someone who is worth the wait. I will continue to see Dr. Farakh as long as it takes to get my situation under control. I hit the jackpot when I found Dr. Farakh. He made me feel like there is hope. Thanks again doc.
