Ratings for Dr. Mark D. Omar
Dr. Omar is difficult to get into see. He dismisses patient concerns about serious matters as well as the symptoms. He does not make referrals to specialists and prescribes minimal medication which in our family has been inadequate to treat the condition. This resulted in our family member needing to go to the emergency room in a crisis on multiple occasions. The emergency room physician took our family member off the medication prescribed by Dr. Omar. Yes, he is chatty and friendly. So are the cashiers at Chik-fil-a.
Dr. Omar has a bedside personality I wish all doctors had. I consider him the traffic cop of doctors beyond anything basic in healthcare. That's not a criticism as he will direct you to a specialist if you need one. He's at the hospital if you are for any reason to check on your status. Expect an early morning visit. Very early. He's thorough but hard to get into see unless it's an emergency-ish type of situation. Can take months so prepare for that. If you can wait he's worth it. There are so many uncaring and in a rush physicians these days that this is why he is so popular. He won't rush you, so realize he's not rushing other patients either, so bring a book or iPad to distract yourself. Other doctors would do well to emulate his personality and gentle nature. He's rare these days.
Dr Omar has been my primary care physician for years. He is very kind and concerned. He does not hesitate to refer you to another doc if the need arises. His office is very busy and difficult to get an appointment but I don't want to go to a doc that has no other patients. An empty waiting room would make me wonder about the quality of the medical staff. I have had serious medical issues and he has always treated the problem correctly. Awesome doctor-I would recommend him highly.
Dr. Omar is the most compassionate doctor I have ever know. He makes you feel like you are the most important person in the world. The only time I have had to wait is when they had to fit me in because I had an emergency. Dr. Omar seems to care more about the humanity side of medicine and less about the monetary side.
Dr.Omar has a great "bedside manner." HOWEVER he is not a great diagnostician. He will refer you, sometimes unncessarily, to specialists. I had a very common ailment (that was documented)and he ordered an MRI be done, in that bldg.(which meant my insurance wouldn't pay for it, because it wasn't done in the hospital) Then sent me to see specialist,an orthopedic Dr., who I saw for a whole 20 seconds! I was treated by his P.A. and given a shot of cortisone. The MRI was useless because the orthopedic Dr. didn't even use it! They use X-rays. So I had a huge bill to pay for no reason! Dr. Omar IS a caring person, however, you should do your research before you just have expensive tests ordered you have to pay for. If you are hospitalized for something,he will show up EARLY every day. You might get charged for it. His office staff is nice and helpful, but he no longer takes new patients from what I have heard.
