I had a bit of trouble finding a doctor to assist me with some issues I had. So I thought I would give Dr. Qamar a try. Immediately upon walking into the door you are met with a smile and afriendly hello. For me this immediately made me feel welcome. Both nurses working on site are amazing. I do have to warn you though, the smiles and good encounters are highly contagious. Even when your feeling down they bring you back up. Dr. Qamar is no exception. She is very polite and understanding. Any questions you may have she will listen and answer them. She has helped me understand the importance of maintaining a healthy blood pressure and healthy heart. I honestly don’t know how I’m able to book appointments with them. They are amazing ??. I would highly recommend to anyone.

I went in for a physical and weight loss consultation. This doctor walked in and in under 3 minutes dismissed me, never touched me and did not even ask if I had any questions. With a surprised look on my face,I told her that I had questions. She did no research and dismissed everything quickly. My insurance was charged for a "physical" that never happened. I was highly disappointed.

She seems like she's always overbooked. As a new patient, I would think she would take her time with me, walk me through things. Instead she rushed right through my appointment, I don't even know if the amount of time shetook to check on me was enough to actually make sure everything was alright.

Very disappointed; I have worked in the healthcare field for more than 10 years. The physician prescribed 5 medications, ordered labs and CT before even completing an exam on my child. The exam was maybe 30 seconds. She gave no indicationof what could be wrong. Told me to follow up in 2-3 weeks and if worse go to ED. My child was in severe pain, received no answers; it was a complete waste of my time. We will NOT ever go back. The physician never made eye contact; only typed in her laptop everything I said.

Won't be back. The front desk ladies were very unprofessional. Even though the visit was supposed to be free because of my insurance, and since we previously discussed this, they were talking about how they should just charge me anyway. Thiswas a 15 minute conversation that they had with the window closed. I could still hear everything. It wasn't a pleasant experience at alll.

I came in to discuss depression and possible medication, and in the process: -It was insinuated that I might be a junky because of the medicine I requested which had worked for me in the past and which I had notused in the last 6 months -Medicine was prescribed with side-effects I specifically asked to avoid (high drowsiness) -The doctor told me my BMI was over 30 and that I was obese (it was miscalculated by 3 points high). This in the context of a meeting where the patient is telling the doctor they are seriously depressed, then to be told I was seriously obese (when redoing the calculation proved I was overweight, a much less serious/less depressing condition) seemed pretty tone-deaf.

I had a really great experience all around. Getting the appointment was easy and there was very minimal wait when I arrived for my appointment and the staff and doctor were both very courteous and efficient. I definitely recommend Dr. Qamar :)
