The dr. Was fine. The office was terrible. Two nurses were standing outside smoking when I got there. They made me wait 3 days to schedule an MRI. Some of the staff seemed very unprofessional. Will be going elsewhere for a follow up.

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 had to 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 recommend this 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 addressed my 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 requested to speak to the manager. It was honestly only better after I saw the doctor who was very professional.

I'm very impressed with Dr Farakh. He is very professional and caring . I've been back to the office a few times now and when he gave me the injections all I felt was a little bit of pressure. He answered all my questions and I felt very satisfied with the care I was given .

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 were unpleasant. 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 next few 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
