Sat in on my husbands appointment. Doctor was cold, serious, and refused to treat more than one problem at a time, eventhough secondary problem was acute stomach pain, then complained that certain paper work he may have to do to wouldbe a headache and complicated and didn't want to deal with It. Not considerate to the fact that my husband is foreign with accent and possibly not understanding his questions; seemed to get impatient and sharp as a result. Appointment was rushed. Front desk staff was cold and non-enthusiastic about their job.

No nurses took my vitals & I felt very rushed. I saw the doctor for all of five minutes. I understand medical providers can get busy, but he didnt even go as far as to give me suggestions or tips onhow to aid my injury at home. He gave me a diagnosis, a RX & a note for work all within five minutes. I did not feel like I recieved the care that I should had.

Dr Osman was very professional and attentive. I can be a little skeptical when going to new doctors, but I will definitely be going back. His receptionist was also very down to earth and engaged me in conversation quite a bit!

Very dirty office, doctor did not wash his hands and the place had paperwork strewn all ovr the place with people's personal info out for anyone to eye-over. He ran in, took off his coat, saw me for about two minutesbefore giving a serious diagnoses then left the office completely, putting back on his coat we saw him in. We just seriously hope the medication offers some relief as I am in bad condition and have spent good money to see this doctor. Would not recommend him, will not be seeing him again. It's amazing he is able to stay I'm business with such a dirty establishment.

I visited Dr. Carrim's office on three occasions. My husband was present for the first two. The first visit basically went like this: Dr: What are you here for? Me: Condition A Dr: I think you have Condition B. What doyou think? Me: No...not really. Dr: (turns to husband) Do you think she has Condition B? Husband: No. Dr: I would like to treat Condition B first. I had to be pretty persistent in communicating the severity of my symptoms and necessity for treatment. The Dr. prescribed a treatment plan and we scheduled a follow-up appointment two weeks out. There was a 30 minute wait for my second visit. Other than that, the visit was fine, yet rushed. No wait on the third visit, although there were four people already waiting when I got there. During this appointment, I found Dr. Carrim to be highly dismissive of my concerns, offering a "100.. no, 1000% guarantee" that they were unfounded. Regardless of the validity of my concerns, I find it absurd that anyone would say that in a professional setting, let alone a doctor. Dr. Carrim appeared to have a hard time focusing during each appointment. He would frequently interrupt me as I was speaking, then interrupt himself to begin voicing another thought. He basically ran out the door when he decided my last appointment was over (less than 10 minutes after it started). I understand that Dr. Carrim would like to make the most of his three hour work days, but it shouldn't be at the patient's expense. This office is understaffed and overbooked. The idea of personalized, quality care is a nice one, but the execution here is a complete failure. Also, there are only four parking spaces.

Dr. Carrim took the time to explain lab findings and his thought process with recommending further testings instead of just ordering them. It was a good 1 on 1 experience with a doctor and you don't feel rushed.

ZocDoc allows Dr. Carrim’s office to populate under “dermatologist” when searching for a dermatologist. Dr. Carrimis NOT a dermatologist. He did not help me at all – a co-pay spent just to get a referral to a dermatologist -- that isall I received. The site states Dr. Carrim is not a dermatologist, but he is a doctor that CAN and DOES treat dermatological issues. When you really, really want to see a dermatologist and cannot wait over 30 days to see one (usual time it takes to get in to see a dermatologist for the first time, you believe and rely on this type of information – it believe it has some validity). This is misleading. It is a waste of time and funds. I will NEVER see Dr. Carrim again, nor use ZocDoc.

He was very easy to talk to. Took his time explaining problem. I was early because I was afraid I wouldn't find it and I barely walked threw door and was seen. He truly listens to you and then sets youup with additional appointments. His staff was very friendly and caring too. I have already scheduled my second appointment and am pleased to say I have found my new doctor. I will be highly recommending him to friends and family. Thank you zoc doc. Without your service I may have not found this wonderful doctor.!

The appointment was rushed. Doctor was professional but way over-booked. I don't feel like he listens very well. Office is in an old home - not as appealing as a nice office. But all that said - I'll still go back and try one more appointment.

It is hard to tell. at this point. I will see how it goes on my follow-up appointment. My appointment today was at 11:45 am (and I admit I was a little late) and I was out before 12:00 pm. Things felt a bit rushed.

Love Dr Carrim! My one complaint is the new front desk lady. She is incredibly rude, and seems like she has no time for people. I really have nothing else negative to say. Hope this gets fixed though because I don'tlike feeling like I have to book my appointment online because if call on the phone to make an appointment it will be answered with an attitude. Oh, also, if you use this website to book your appointment, you more than likely will show up and they will have no idea why you are there. I got 2 different notifications/reminders of my appointment only to show up and her have no knowledge of it. I saw this same thing happen last time I was there with another patient.

I've seen him twice and both times were ok. The staff is not very nice. Especially the secretary. He seems to listen well but you will be rushed through the office. If you call with any questions you are met withhostility from the secretary. I do like the doctor and will keep seeing him. However I think the women at the front desk could really use a crash course in kindness.

The Dr. is very kind and it was easy to get a same day appointment. Only issue was they say that your prescription has been sent in, 2 hours later it was faxed in. Have to make sure before you leavethat they do it right away if you need a fast pick up/

This was our first visit with Dr. Carrim and came about because we were dissatisfied with our other doctor's treatment. Dr. Carrim listened to our concerns, made a thorough, but speedy examination, helped us understand the nature of the problem,and suggested a course of treatment. We were encourage and relieved as we left instead of frustrated like with our previous doctor. We're very happy with Dr. Carrim and feel like we've finally found a primary care doctor.
