16/08/12 5 4 5 5 Yes he is quick, but he knows what's going on, you just got to make sure you tell him everything that is going on,so he can diagnose you correctly. I told him my shoulder has been hurting me, so he said tendinitis, then I remembered to tell him I also been having hips and knee pains. He asked me if I had a tick, I told him anything is possible, so he sent me for blood work and urine test, so far Mono may be the reason for my pains. He does have a deep accent, if you don't understand him, tell him and he will help you understand him.

20/05/11 5 5 5 5 I received better treatment here then I did from the ER I visited the week before. I expect sub par care because it wasn't a hospital, but was blown away by the quick attentive care I received. AND at such an affordable price for someone without insurance!  Respond

28/06/10 5 5 5 5 I met Dr Haj in Urgent Care for a cold/flu symptom illness. I was at that time looking for a new primary care doctor. His Primary care office is directly above urgent care. I was quite impressed with him so I inquired if he was accepting new patients. I have now his primary care for over two years. He has treated me excellent. With the best care I have had from any doctor in my 54 years. Cudos Dr. Haj Keep up the good work. P.S. Those people that trashed him have no clue what a good doctor is!

24/11/08 1 1 1 1 This doctor was not very nice. He seemed like he was in a rush and was always on his phone. He talked with an accent and I couldn't understand him. I ended up going to the hospital because I didn't feel better after his treatment. The hospital was more curteous and they made me better. I would not recommend this doctor or the urgent care. Disappointing!

20/09/06 5 5 5 I went to woonsocket urgent care for a headache, the doctoe saw within minutes, order some blood test and a ct scan of my head, the results came back with minutes and he was very nice and explained to me my condition as migraine and i think he was right since then I have beed taking the medication without any headche anymore. the place was organized and clean, I did not need to wait for 6-7 hours like the emergency room, Woonsocket Urgent care is very good assest to our comunity and recommend every body to go there instead of the emergency room, less copay, less waiting time, and more personalized treatment, and they even call at your home next, this will never happen at the emergency room.
