I've been a patient of Dr. Qureshi's for almost 2 years. I'm on certain medications that are hard to have prescribed for obvious epidemics. She has constantly worked hard to get me to the correct specialist so that I get thebest quality of care available, where other practitioners have just sent me on my way. I have battled my weight since a young age. When I brought this concern up, she listened, and was empathetic towards my frustrations. She didn't give up on me. She was able to find a regimen to actually worked for me! I'm happy to say that I've dropped over 100 pounds since being her patient. She's offered several discounted procedures, since my insurance doesn't cover much of anything. She's been very supportive throughout my journey. There are some days that she's shower swamped, and running late, but that is common at all doctors offices. Im willing to wait to insure O receive the best possible care! I like the fact that she will not mix words. She gives me the information I need, whether I want to hear it, or not. She is to the point, and although some individuals would consider her approach as rude, I believe more providers should take her approach. If you're looking for superior health care, and don't want the B.S. involved, then I would highly recommend Dr. Q. Her office staff is even super helpful, and will go the extra mile to makes sure that I'm properly take care of. Also, Dr. Qureshu is wonderful with children as well! She takes the time to speak directly with my son, instead of me trying to answer about his issues with her. I would highly recommend her too others looking for the highest level of care provided by a primary care physician.

She seemed like she had a long day, wasnt sure she was delighted to see me. I was hoping to get a physical exam done today, but she advised me to reschedule since ive just got done having my period threedays ago. I said thats fine, I'll reschedule. Aside from that, she mentioned about my acne problem on my back and also my face. She recommended a facial peel and prescribed me a couple of acne medications. I give her four stars.

I scheduled my appointment at a certain time because unfortunately I knew that I had to take my son with me. I was considerate enough to do so around times that I know he would normally take a nap sothat the experience wouldn't be offputting for the office staff and Doctor. I kept in mind the amount of time an initial visit may take so that by the time I leave my son would be due for his nap. Unfortunately despite the office staff not being so welcoming and cold I was still made to wait an additional 30 minutes past my appointment without any dialogue or "heads up" by staff. I arrived 30 min prior to my appt assuming that I would be asked to fill out paperwork since this is my first visit to the office and tried to be mindful of their schedule.The professional thing to do would be to be mindful of my time as well. I don't ask for much and I'm definitely not high maintenance I just ask for a little bit of communication so that I know what is going on.It's very frustrating as I have a very tight schedule and it's hard with my children to get away to an important appointment such as this one. I definitely need to schedule another appointment but needless to say it will not be with this office.

I was really disapointed with my visit to Dr. Qureshi. Her staff was rude and not helpful at all. I was the only patient in the office and waited 45 minutes to be seen. When I asked the receptionist, she saidI will be seen soon.....20+ minutes later. I never made eye contact with either girl behind the desk the entire time I was there. Dr. Qureshi was nice, and I really wanted to have a good visit. I was frustrated that she was late. She didn't do a full exam which was upsetting. I will not go back to this doc and do not recommend her.

Dr. Qureshi was polite, professional, and able to answer all of my questions. She was informative and gave me a few different medication options and readily gave me what I wanted even though it wasn't her top recommendation. I would haveliked to have been able to do the paperwork online before the appointment to cut down on some of the 4 pages of questions/responses. Aside from that, I was satusifed with my visit.

My first visit with Dr Qureshi was great. We talked for quite a while on my symptoms and history. I am set for additional lab tests and we will go from there. I purposely arrived in the office 30 minutes beforemy scheduled appt. I spent 15 minutes filling out the standard forms. I was seen by the Dr several minut s before my scheduled appointment. She cared enough to request to review previous MRIs for a long unhandled back condition if I was interested, a condition separate from the reason I went to see her. Thank you Dr.

Even after taking an appointment, we had to wait for 1.5 hours. The office opens at 9 am and our appointment was at 9.30 am. When we reached the office there were already 3 patients ahead of us and we gotto see the doctor at 11 am. It was very frustrating. She prescribed me some very strong prescription which I was not happy about. I will not be going there again.

Dr. Qureshi is consistently a kind, generous, thoughtful caregiver and sharp doctor. She has a casual conversational style that makes me extremely comfortable so everything is easy to discuss, and her feedback is balanced between westerntraditional medicine and a healthy dose of common sense...mixed with a subtle holistic (but not overly granola) mindset. It's refreshing, really. Highly recommend Dr. Qureshi. Some people are just built upon a certain kindness at their core. She is definitely one of them, which goes a long long way when dealing with health issues.

She was wonderful I've seen many doctors including specialists for over 15 years and she is the first doctor to recommend surgery that has a high success rate with very low risk. She cares and spent the time to help identifya long term solution which will eliminate having to take medicine for the pain. I was impressed how quickly she diagnosed it and am eager to get the surgery and no longer deal with the severe back pain I've had since a teenager. Lastly just to show she truly cares and just doesn't resort to medication for the solution she even discussed a plan how to safely eliminate the medication once I'm able to save enough money to cover my portion of the surgery cost. She's a true doctor not one that just prescribes unnecessary medication that is detrimental in the long term. I am lucky to have found her while researching on the interne.

Dr Qureshi looked rather rundown and was not very coherent in her explanation of the drugs she was prescribing me. It seemed that describing what these were going to do to help or hurt me with their side effects was toodifficult to ask of her, as she used very general terms and oftentimes trailed off with her sentences. So, I didn't exactly understand the drugs all that well and their distinctions from other drug options. She made some statements for the reason of her prescription which disagrees with other doctors I have been to for the same illness. Their methods for treatment were all successful for me, so I'm not sure why she has such a different stance. I did not go to my previous doctors for reasons of appointment time and having switched my insurance situation. She is of a sound mind all by herself, but listening to patients and getting their feeedback is half of the treatment. One of the prescriptions she sent with me caused me to experience a lot of distress with a near pass out followed by violent vomiting, and all it was supposed to do was help me with pain that I never mentioned that I'd had. She made 0 mention of this beforehand. I'm going to forego that part of the prescription for the rest of my treatment, and HOPEFULLY the other half of the drug prescription is not of the same poor judgement. Also, I'm not sure if this is ZocDoc's fault or the office's, but this office doesn't utilize ZocDoc's check-in forms. I had to fill in all of the new patient forms by hand. After having become very accustomed to ZocDoc for years now, I really don't want to go back to the old manual handwritten system.

I didn't like her. This is why: I have 2 children. I told the doc that I was planning on having another. She said that 2 were more than enough, why would I want more, that she had 1, and washappy with only that. And as a young woman with a life ahead of me, and probably unstable finances, (she wrongly assumed), I should re think this. I came to her for a medical opinion, not life advice, and that was annoyingly judgemental. Again I mentioned that I was using an implant for birth control. She asked me why not the pill? Now the implant is just as effective a form of birth control medically as the pill, possibly more, as you cannot forget to take one, why is she criticizing me for that? My choice! My baby, who was with me, but not the patient. She asked me if he was eating well, and expressed concern about his weight. Again, interfering lady. My son has his own doc who knows more about his vitals than you do! Her office isn't computerized. She gave me a prescription on a piece of paper instead of sending it to a pharmacy. Most importantly, I have ongoing medical conditions with medical history from various specialists. She did not request or look over those medical records. Instead, she relied on my orally repeated hustory, and barely listened to that. Not planning to see her again.

Very unprofessional, just wants your money! For a first time patient, you would think she would want to know about me and my medical history. She just looked at my chart, checked my heart beat, and hit my knee and sentme out the door. Had me get my blood drawn---a staff member called me a couple days later saying the doctor found abnormalities and that i would need to come in for a follow up. It's difficult for me to find time for appointments in my schedule, and asked if the abnormalities were something i should be concerned about and if i should take a day off work to come in... the staff member would not tell me! After 3 calls, I was finally told I had a vitamin D deficiency and to take over the counter pills. WHAT A JOKE.

Very rude ; not professional. Did not listen to my concerns and kept interrupting me. Was shopping around for a new doctor with my new insaurance and I will never be going back. She rolled her eyes a few times asI was talking and made judgmental faces. As a patient, I don't need to see that nor should an MD be conducting that behavior. Do not recommend; unless you want to feel rushed the whole time.

This doctor appears to be nice but is impatient and does not seem to know 100% what she is doing. I did a panel of STD tests and she asked me to see her in regards to the results. She rightoff the bat told me I was positive for something, which really freaked me out. She was acting nice and told me that she will treat me. After I left, when I looked into the results, all results final interpretation from Quest Diagnostic were saying I am negative. Absolutely do not recommend anyone to see her.
