Ratings for Dr. Shahida M. Abbas
The office is not a real Dr's office. The Dr has no interest in why you are there. And the man up at the desk is a mess! Doesn't know where to find referrals or specialists and tells you your prescription is sent but it never makes it to the pharmacy. There are papers that are patient's all over behind the desk which you can see from the counter. The Dr rushes you out. Doesn't do the usual heart, lungs and ear checks or even temperature. Horrible waste of time! Not professional at all!
Worst Dr. Ever! Took me 2 weeks to get in then my appointment was canceled 10 minutes before I had to be there. They couldnt get me in for another 2 weeks. Had to go to the hospital instead of my primary. This was an issue with my insurance and had to explain to them I had no choice becasue it took forever to get into my doctor's office. The 2nd time I made an appointment they got me in faster but I was treated rudely. This last time I went in I was giving medication that didn't work all the way and was still having issues. I called to tell them and they acted like it was a big inconvenience for them that I called. Was told the doctor would get back to me which she didn't. Had to call again and in so many words was told there not doing anything. Guess I had to make another emergency room trip and have to explain it to my insurance company. I'm changing my primary today.
Worst Dr ever. Went for 1 Issue I was having. Dr gave me a quick look over (ears nose throat and breathing) and was ready to leave said everything is fine. Maybe 1 minute. I asked what about my issue she said she would send prescription to pharmacy go in about 20 minutes to pick it up. it was 3:15 pm Office hours were 3 to 5 that day. Went at 4:30 to pick up prescriptions and they were not sent yet. Called the office and they said they just sent it. Go back to pharmacy and they sent a refill on an existing med. Now its after 5 office closed for the weekend. Called Monday morning and was told office hours are 12 to 3 at the brick office. Called at 12 And was told to make another appointment. Worst Dr ever don't go here.
Her posted hours online are wrong. They say she opens at 9am, but she doesn't arrive until 11! I never get called back when I leave messages. She said she sent my scripts to the pharmacy, but hours later, the pharmacy still hasn't received them. So I came back to her office to ask about it, just to find that she closed at 2pm (after opening at 11?!) and won't be back until monday. I have no medicine for this entire weekend! This office and doctor are terrible. Do yourself a favor and AVOID HER!
Using this Doctor for many years and things have become very bad in her office. The staff has no idea of what they are doing and the office is filthy. Dr Abbas does not even do basics and hours are poor and call backs are impossible. I'm moving on.
I was going to this doctor for the past 10 years. Worst thing i could have done to myself. Every time i went to her i felt that she was more a business woman than a doctor. I felt she never cared what i had to say or what my concerns were. It felt like she knew why i was there before i even said anything. Well 10 years later i change a doctor and after hearing my family history i was sent for the ultrasound just to find out that i have 2inch lump in my body!!! I should have listened to my gut feeling and changed doctors much earlier.
She's awful. She lacks basic social skills and is not thorough at all. She doesn't even do the basic, listen to your heart, blood pressure, ears, NOTHING. Just asks a couple of questions, with no interest at all, then says you have to see specialist! Well, I GOT another doctor, another PRIMARY doctor and all I needed was antibiotics! HA! Thanks for nothin, Abbas!
