This was my first appointment with Dr. Ashraf after searching for a local orthopedist who would accept my insurance and see me quickly. The office conveniently imported my info from Zocdoc, so I only had a couple forms to sign when I arrived. The office seemed to be very busy with several patients, but they were organized. Unfortunately, I had to wait about an hour despite arriving early with an appointment; however, Dr. Ashraf acknowledged that and apologized as soon as I saw him. He listened to my concerns without rushing or interrupting and performed what seemed to be a basic exam of my injured area, still listening to my personal observations. He stated next steps that included some follow-up tests I'd have to get on my own, as well as prescription medication, but he did seem to be a bit rushed in explaining things at that point. He did give me the opportunity to ask questions as he was leaving the exam room.
Most of his staff was very friendly and professional. I'm just surprised they didn't provide any summary of the visit in writing, which is something I always get from my primary physician or any other specialist. Everything was just verbal. Further, the facilities they referred me for the diagnostic tests did not accept my insurance, but I'm not sure they would know that.
Overall, I would recommend Dr. Ashraf. The office is clean and modern. He is an active listener, and the staff is pleasant. His recommendation for a specific physical therapist is excellent. I have a follow-up with Dr. Ashraf coming up, and I hope that visit will also be a positive experience.
