The doctor was great. She was very nice and helpful and answered my many questions. I waited so long though andthe office charged me more than I think was necessary for my PCP visit. The office staff at one point after I had already given my initial form, said "are you being helped?" like she didn't know that I had been there and given one form already.

Unprofessional office, receptionist was having personal conversations while I was waiting. 30+ minute wait for a physical,no updates as to why it took so long when I was the only person in the waiting room.

The nurse was extremely nice and helpful and Dr. Hanif was nice but did not seem concerned with what I was saying and I went in to get results back and it was more of just a reason for me to have to pay to come in again because everything was glossed over and nothing was explained.

Generally a frustrating and long experience. Seemed nice & clean so I assumed t would be professional and efficient. It was professional But NOT efficient. Came 10 minutes early for my 6pm appointment, and didn’t get seen until 6:45 and for less than 10 minutes. Mostly because the physicians who saw me had a very condescending and apathetic demeanor and generally didn’t seem to be able to even care to finish her sentences. It is what it is - doctors offices can be this way but I would not like to go back and find it is not as efficient as I’d want a PCP consult to be.

Dr. Hanif and staff were really wonderful. It was my first time here changing my primary care doctor and I was a little nervous. Dr. Hanif was very professional and friendly. She made me feel very comfortable and informed. When I became light headed while giving blood, the nurse was very helpful and attentive. She gave me water and took my blood pressure twice. I was very happy with the experience. I left feeling confident I would be back.

Dr. Hanif was wonderful, she was very helpful and efficient. The office experience was a little rocky. I was there for three separate appointments over the course of a week, and by the third appointment the staff asked me "have you been here before?" There wasn't a lot of explanation of the procedures that I needed done, so when being handled by the nursing staff, it made me feel a bit uneasy. The office itself is really small, it's weird to come in to a room where the door doesn't open all the way because the bed is in the way. Again, the Doctor herself was great, just not sure I'll be coming back again.

The visit to this office was a little disappointing, the first appointments I had made many tests including blood tests, of which I did not receive the corresponding reading, I asked to be referred to a specialist for my back problems and I never received an answer. Third time from my view to this office was the most disappointing of all I came to this place with a strong pain in the abdominal area with the certainty that I had kidney stones and the doctor said that it could not be possible, it was not until by a miracle I went to the bathroom and after peeing I threw a stone at that moment the doctor believed in me and did an ultrasound, it was a pretty ugly experience when you go for medical help and you do not receive anything, I did not receive any medication or order to attend specialists! After that I wrote an email to this doctor to ask for the records of my tests and the only thing she answered was that I should ask for a new appointment! obviously I did not do it after those experiences! delayed attention, decent equipment, qualified personnel but a very poor system to meet the patient's needs.

She didn’t bother to check if the vaccinations I needed for vacation were in stock at my pharmacy or could be administered there so I called myself while in the dr office and was put on hold as I didn’t want to be left unprotected and time was an issue. I had a tetanus in the office while on hold for the cvs pharmacist - the pharmacist was audibly stunned that the patient and not the dr was calling with these questions - and then I found out that it is against state law for the pharmacist to inject me with typhoid and hep A. Then when I went to tell the doctor this and arrange an alternative I discovered she had gone home without saying a word to me. I won’t be going back.

I went through lots of reviews and visits before finding Doctor Syra Hanif. The staff is very friendly and helpful the minute you walk in. Most important of all there is nearly no wait time at all. Appointments are made and managed through a web portal which is convenient if you have a busy schedule but if you rather call in to make changes, also very friendly at adjusting to appt change requests. In terms of your care, the attentive bedside manner from Dr. Hanif was the deciding factor in choosing her as my PCP. She takes the time to fully explain everything, you never feel rushed, and she opens up opportunity for any questions you may have. Overall highly recommended!

The doctor and her staff are nice enough but everything about the office was so strange. It’s location is confusing and it looks like they bring in the bare minimum equipment to keep the place running. I needed additional testing which in any other office they do right away but because this one didn’t have the right doctors and equipment, they scheduled me for 2 additional appointments on 2 separate days. I expressed a dislike for having to pay my co-pay 3 times for these tests and was told it’s because they don’t have those doctors there everyday. I came for my second visit and was told I needed to not only pay a higher co-pay to see the doctor who was running my additional tests but I also had to pay my regular co-pay to the doctor to hear the results from my first visit. 2 co-pays for 1 visit. I asked why no one told me I would have to pay extra and also said it didn’t make sense to me to pay twice for what is one visit. They apologized and said that’s just how it is. The “specialist doctor” I saw by the way, barely spoke English, took a phone call during my visit, and laughed at me when I couldn’t understand what she was asking of me. I’m so glad I paid that second co-pay for her. I cancelled my third visit, got the prescription I needed, and will be finding a new doctor for my follow up. My advice, even though the doctor and her front desk staff are friendly, if you may need any type of testing, find a doctor’s office that is in a traditional building and will be equipped with everything you need. If you’re just going for a quick physical then Dr. Hanif is fine.

She's fantastic :) Very knowledgable and pleasant. HOWEVER, I needed to pay a second copay to come in and hear my lab results, which I thought was unnecessary. Paying an additional copay to hear that I need a little more vitamin D wasn't ideal haha. Still, she is great.

Doctor was fine but I did not feel comfortable in the office. I could hear everything happening in the other rooms. The women who checked my in and was taking my medical history did not seem to care at all. Very basic history. Will be going to a provider who will take more time with me, as opposed to the 10 second stomach exam. Did not leave the appointment feeling any sort of peace of mind at all.

Dr. Hanif is truly wonderful - look no further for an extremely knowledgeable, and caring doctor. She will listen to your concerns, and look for every possible solution out there. As someone who needs a fair amount of medical attention, I was lucky to have found a doctor who is not only concerned about your well-being, but is willing to support you every step of the way. The nursing staff is great as well! Very personable and professional. The offices are always clean.
