Ratings for Dr. Amir M. QURESHI
I absolutely loved Doctor Q when I went there. His shots and blocks all were helping my pain. His prescribing of meds is in line as well. My issues are with those leeches and idiots that he has working for him. I can't stand that second doctor that works there. He makes you feel as though you are ignorant. And his receptionist or nurses NEVER call back when you leave a message. I was rushed in for emergency abdominal surgery and the surgeon gave me NO meds. Here I am with two drains hanging out of me sitting at the PM office for 3 hours and they giveme 20 morphine tablets and tell me to return in 6 weeks.
Switched procedures in the middle of having it done after i was under mild sedatives and never knew what was done and then after I experienced extreme pain that was not present prior to the procedure. I was pressured into the procedures after he moved to his new clinic and did the procedures there, I am sure this was due to money he made from them. Very unprofessional atmosphere and scary how many rules & policies were not followed..
I went to Dr. Qureshi for pain management and also because I am in acute pain. I have no problem peeing in a cup or following the instructions given to me. I do exactly as I am told but, what do have a problem with is when I called out for help 5 to 6 times just to be told there is nothing they can do for me. They were supposed to order an urgent (emergency) MRI and that never happened. When I called the second time they said there is nothing more they can do for me and to go to the hospital to have them order a emergency MRI. I went to the hospital and after 5-1/2 hours they said we can not order a MRI and to not follow up with this Dr. That was alarming. I have been suffering with this acute pain for over a week now and they just tell me there is nothing they can do for me and to take some Tylenol. If that's all I need then there is no reason to see this Dr. I was not asking medication I was just asking for help. The staff is very rude and uncaring I wld not recommend this Dr.
I have seen Dr. Q 4yrs now. NO INSURANCE!! He may be overbooked at times but I have yet to visit a doctor who isn't.. As for comment I read about drug test it's 25 dollars not 400.00!! You probably failed is why you are complaining ! I can talk to him about whatever my lastest problems he listens very well and explains pros and cons and the why and why not. I have even had an injection free cause he new my pain was real and very intense. I just LOVE Dr. Q!!!!
I have gone to him for many years with my neuropathy pain and low back pain. He listens and tries all he can, to make me comfortable and live my life being usual and happy. He is very professional and takes his time talking with me. He gets overbooked sometines and I must wait (which is so uncomfortable). I have recently had a blocked nerve in my back. Oh do I ever feel better. It is not going to last forever tho. We seem like old friends when I see him and he is easy to talk to about anything. He seems to know what my pain is all about and understands me. I don't feel as though I am complaining, but someone is really listening to my needs. His staff is so kind and helpful.
This Is hands down one of the two worse experiences I have ever had with a doctor ever. He basically made me feel bad about being in pain. He also made me feel worse about myself because i had previously seen another doctor that no longer practices and because he had prejudice against this doctor it was apparent he was looking at me in a bad light. I am so sorry that i went to this man. He also decided that he wanted to act as another specialist i see telling me i should be taking something i already have been taking for years that has had minimal effect and has not helped. so much for listening to me or reading my chart. if it worked would i be seeing him? I would have worked with him if he wasn't such a total jerk.
Dr. Qureshi probably really needs to return to his home country. He seems not to understand American customs, he seems to have difficulty communicating with patients (a major disadvantage for an M.D.). I found him to be less than straightforward. For example, without telling me, he obtained a "random" drug screen that cost me in excess of $400. My PCP asked me to ask this Dr. for his recommendation for a prescription analgesic. I did. Twice. I received no specific answer both times. A couple of days ago, I received a statement from his office. He is trying to collect on the amount that he has agreed not to receive from my insurance carrier. Needless to say, he isn't going to receive it, and I have reported him to our state's Insurance Commissioner. Find a doctor who will communicate with you and advise you of procedures before he initiates them. Even Dr. Qureshi's staff seems aware of and self-conscious about his interpersonal and communicative shortcomings.
