Dr. Daniel Hakimi's Ratings
I am distraught after my visit. I put my entire trust and time in Mr. Hakimi's hands only to experience a visit completely malpractice and unprofessional.
I came in as a new patient because my previous Gyn relocated two towns away.
I was in severe pain for days and made an appointment with Mr. Hakimi.
Upon first look it was a clean office with easy availability, which was convenient because I needed treatment a.s.a.p because of severe pain and irritation.
When trying to discuss my pain, Mr. Hakimi assured me that after a Pap smear and blood test that he will have more information for me. He couldn't even tell me what the problem MIGHT be or what I can do for the pain in the meantime.
Instead, he proceeded to tell me about his other business preforming labia surgery to aesthetically minimize the size and how he's had celebrity clients. He was more eager to give me his cards about his other "profession" and asked that I'd share them instead of giving me any answers to why I was in pain! Nothing!
So I urged once more! "But why am I in pain? Is there anything we can do?"
He BARELY took a glance at me and said that he'll see if there is an appropriate ointment that he can give me. "IF?"
Then, the power goes out in the office! A nurse comes in to do blood work and draws blood from me in the the dark!!!!!!! At this point I feel very awkward but remain polite and tolerant because I trust in the staff's ability and experience given the good reviews online.
After the blood work I am escorted back to the receptionist desk. I STILL had NO idea what was wrong with me or why I was in pain! I urged the doctor one last time before I left, mentioning that I am traveling often and that I need to know what to do for the pain. The "doctor" insisted that the results will be back in 6 days and he will give me something for the pain and that I will be notified first thing.
3 and a half weeks go by and no phone call. I have been taking over-the-counter medicine in the meantime, still in on/off pain.
I call the office and ask why I haven't received notice by now. The receptionist told me that results came back normal for the Pap. Ok....but what about the blood tests, or the pain?
The receptionist asked what was I prescribed and I say "Nothing! Thats what I have been waiting for!"
She tells me that she can send my pharmacy a prescription right away. Why wasn't that done when I originally came in 3 weeks prior in agonizing pain? So then I ask her about my blood test and she seems confused and puts me on hold....once she comes back she tells me the the blood work was never sent out...it was never done even though they drew blood.
I thanked her for her time and hung up. I am absolutely broken up about this. How can you leave a patient clueless and in pain for weeks? I trusted that the staff and "doctor" knew what the were doing and that if I waited I would have an accurate answer and treatment. I have lost my complete trust in offices like these. How could you just NOT send out a patient's blood work? I feel neglected and I do not recommend anyone to try and find treatment here. What a dishonorable and horrible experience.
Dr Hakimi delivered my baby a few years ago, he is a great person and doctor. But unfortunately like another comment said he is in high demand. I was told i wasn't an important case and that i had to see a new doctor he hired. I tried and i really dont trust this doctor. I tried to talk to dr Hakimi but nothing. The waiting is horribly and they have a lot billing issues... i just cant keep going there, I'm currently looking for a new doctor.
I can confidently say that there is no other Ob/Gyn like Dr Hakimi in NY and NJ areas. He is in high demand. From complex Robotic Surgeries and plastic Gyn surgeries to highly complicated obstetrical cases Dr Hakimi should be your first and last place to look for your medical needs. His is unmatched in his surgical skills and medical knowledge. In my humble opinion, he is a woman's dream. His calm demenor will allow you to get through any possible unforeseen complication. Trust me as an experienced labor and delivery nurse. Over the years I have seen how others conduct themselves and I have also seen Dr Hakimi. A different elite on Hackensacks Labor & Delivery. No one but Dr Hakimi!
Dr. Hakimi always gave us the time of day and made us feel like we were the only patients. He is an extremely caring person and I felt like I was in good hands. He delivered my daughter and I've had a wonderful experience. The office is also beautiful and clean with really nice staff.
Dr. Hakimi delivered my precious Granddaughter. I was in need of a good doctor. After two D&C’s, with my previous doctor, I tried another doctor and was horrified at the care I was given. My Daughter-in-law recommended I go to Dr. Hakimi. Well, it was a blessing I did. He is truly a caring and dedicated professional who performed some tests and thoroughly went over my records and history. After careful consideration, a total Hysterectomy was recommended. I agreed and he performed a Robotic Hysterectomy, in and out of the hospital the same day, with minimal discomfort and a smooth recovery period. Many are astonished at the difference between my surgery and theirs.
Dr. Hakimi is a wonderful person, a true gift to his profession. His office staff is also, just as caring and dedicated, always there to help.
Thank you Dr. Hakimi you are a blessing. TH
Dr. Hakimi is a phenomenal person and doctor. He is a patient doctor, explaining everything along the way and comforting and reassuring when needing to deliver some upsetting news. He is incredibly skilled and truly has the patient's best interests and health at heart. His office is always clean, though there can be times where the wait time is long..
I started coming to Dr. Hakimi from a friend's recommendation and he discovered fibroids in my uterus that my previous gynecologist completely missed. He saw me a few times on a weekend and at 10pm because I was so nervous and he explained everything and calmed me down. He even did the ultrasound himself since it was after business hours. After all my paranoid questions he finally performed robotic surgery on me and it went excellent. I was back to work in 3 days and couldn't have imagined such an easy recovery. Dr. Hakimi has such great bedside manner and is such a skillful and smart doctor. I trust him more than any other doctor I've had. His staff is also very helpful and polite. I met the midwife Eve for one visit and she was very sweet and thorough. I highly recommend this practice because you can truly see when the staff truly care about your needs and a doctor who goes above and beyond to take good care of you.
Dr. Hakimi and his entire staff are simply amazing! During my pregnancy I was considered high risk because I am in my 40’s and have a history of miscarriages. When I first arrived at his office I was a nervous wreck because I was sure that I was going to miscarry again but, thanks to the very attentive care that I received from Dr. Hakimi and his staff, I had a very healthy baby girl. She is my miracle baby girl! Dr. Hakimi is sincerely one of the most kind hearted doctors I have ever met. He really has a way of putting you at ease and making you feel like you are in the best hands possible. After my c-section I was surprised at how quickly I recovered and how I barely felt any pain or discomfort compared to my first c-section. Getting an ultra-sound is always very scary for me but Libby, Shira and Aleida carefully went over every detail on the screen and reassured me that everything was going to be well. Eve the midwife answered all of my questions patiently, even the overly paranoid ones. The two medical assistants Rebecca and Samantha were also extremely helpful with everything from spending hours on the phone trying to resolve health insurance issues to rescheduling appointments. I am very impressed with the professionalism everyone demonstrated at all times. But, most of all with the genuine concern and kindness that I was treated with during my high risk pregnancy.
In all my appointments I have talked to Dr. Hakimi twice and that doesn't bother me at all. He is very courteous , soft spoken, and a good listener. I feel as if I will only see Dr. Hakimi if I end up having a dire emergency and that makes me feel even more comfortable going to his office. Although the wait time is atrocious, both he and his staff are worth the wait. I am always seen by my midwife Evelina, who is amazing, knowledgeable, and extremely sweet. She takes her time to make sure I have everything that needs to be done, and thoroughly explains any questions I may ask. The staff overall is great!! Rebecca is the BEST woman to have draw your blood, not even a pinch!! (I'm terrified of needles but she's genuinely helped me over that) and the one U/S technician Shira is a proficient worker as well!! Everything I need in a Ob/Gyn is located in this clinic. I'm satisfied thus far!!!
