Dr. Faruk S. Abuzzahab's Ratings
Dr. Abuzzahab,Sr. is doubtless the most intelligent doctor (the most intelligent PERSON! ) I have ever met and he is also a compassionate doctor with great intuition. He created a cocktail for me in the mid 1980s of .05 mgs of Prozac and 10mgs of imipramine and it was laughed at: it worked! Now it's a common methodology. He calls me back,he talks to me,he has me on anti-aging supplements. I have developed a disabling pain problem, he wanted to be the doctor treating me as he knows my difficulties, but new rules prohibit him and we must find a Pain Doctor. So far, in my opinion, it's been wrong dosages,wrong meds, wrong treatments and wrong advice, although Dr. Abuzzahab alerts each new doctor to my extreme sensitivities. I have been in the ER 3 times, and receive no instructions but to take nothing until my next appt. It's terrifying as the Pain Monster awaits these moments with glee! Only Dr. Abuzzahab respects me, likes me, & tries to help with advice. Bless him! Susan Kirkham
Abuz is the man! I have never seen a doctor out there as humble as this man. He actually LISTENS to his patients. Most doctors you see, they "hear" what you have to say and then don't ask YOU (the patient) how YOU feel about the possible treatment. Anyways, I cannot recommend him more.
A now former best friend was a patient until her insurance no longer covered, a few months ago. Dr. Faruk S. Abuzzahab. Had her medications down and each one was working for her, she was stabilized. Her insurance no longer allowed coverage to this doctor, after 4 years+ of service! Since then she has been taken Off vital medications, making it impossable to even maintain a friendship. I blame the other dr for adjusting and eliminating some vital meds and wish she could see Dr. Abuzzahab again! I don't even see him and I love the man for what he did for her mental Health! Even the wait could be long for her but he gave her all his attention until she was happy with everything they discussed! Well worth a wait!! Dr. Faruk S. llll
Dr. A has saved my life. He is the best doctor I have ever seen and I have seen a LOT of doctors for my disability. I have seen him at least 10 years and know him very well. He is the most compassionate and caring doctor I have ever seen. Also, he has been practicing for so long that he has "heard it all" and has never said to me, "I do not know". Like I said, he has saved my life, I surely would have taken my life if it were not for him. I live in chronic horrible pain. Please do yourself a favor and get under his care.
The doctor saved my life. Only doctor to correctly diagnose me and prescribe the proper meds. Knowledge of Pharmocology is second to none. In addition to M.D. in psychiatry and PHD in Pharmacology, he has a PHD in Philosophy. He is my hero.
I believe that while people go to doctors for help with conditions, they have a responsibility in their care as well. If someone is not comfortable with a recommendation, for goodness sakes do your research. Dr. A can be intimidating if you don't do your homework and enter into a doctor patient relationship completely uneducated - he is an EXPERT in his field and I would think that if you seek him out or are referred to him then he has a realistic expectation that you will be able to relate to him and have an open dialogue regarding your condition, possible treatment options, and recommendations. If you expect him to do all of the work, then he is going to do what he thinks is best and counts on you to keep him informed of your condition and any changes and/or concerns. While I am certainly sympathetic to those who have lost their loved ones, surely you realize that no person can MAKE, let alone LET, someone take their own life.
Dr Abuzzahab has his good days and bad days just like us normal folk. I have been seeing him for almost fourteen years. He doesn't make me come to him every six months to get a refill on my prescriptions which I really appreciated - other psychiatrists make you come every six months so they can get their money from you. I went to him today and since he is semi-retired he requires cash for his office visit. I didn't know that but he saw me today ANYWAY! Truthfully, I don't know ANY OTHER MEDICAL OFFICER that would do that! NONE! He is from the old school and isn't the most organized but he does care about his patients (not just the money) and sometimes he is in a better mood then others. If you bring it to his attention - like I have a time or two - he will back off. He basically always listens to me and sometimes I dont like to hear what he has to say, but in the end he is right. You have to be your own advocate for everything these days - here is no exception.
