Ratings for Dr. Farah Gafoor
Was told a different thing by 3 different receptionists, so I asked to have Dr. Gafoor call me so that I didn't have to make 3 unnecessary appointments knowing that the clinic is busy, not close to where I live or work, and that I would have to wait. It should have been a simple phone call, not a medical question, just needed clarification, waited all day and never heard anything from her.
she seems to have little care or interest in her patience. maybe she is overworked in a clinic that I perpetually crowded, but it would be nice to have doctor that listened to what you had to say instead of texting on her cell phone during my appointment.
I started seeing Dr. Gafoor when I found out I was pregnant. Thoughtout the pregnancy I thought she was good, not overly forward with information but good. Then when it came time to deliver, her options differed greatly from the other nurses and doctors and this made me skeptical. If 5 professionals agreed that I was 5 cm dialated and Dr. Gafoor check and thought only 2 cm. it seemed a little odd. Then after our daughter was born many of her diagnosis were off when compared to a second opinion. I don't have any confindence left in her ability as a physician and am currently looking for a new family physician
Dr. Gafoor is always late and seems to cram as many patients in as possible. This reduces patient quality of care which I find frustrating. I also find that she has misdiagnosed me with several things which worries me a great deal. I have sought a 2nd opinion and they are baffled as to why she would diagnosis me with conditions that she has not even tested me for. For instance, she said I had a fatty liver with no blood tests etc. by just feeling my abdomen. You cannot diagnosis fatty liver disease with just touching someone. I saw another doctor who did tests and said I do not have that at all! I was needlessly worried. See someone else if you can.
I have been seeing Dr. Gafoor for the last few months. The clinic is nice but the staff can be abrupt. It can be difficult to get an appointment also. I was left sitting in the waiting room for a long time but this has gotten better recently and I'm usually seen within 30 minutes of my appointment time. I find Dr. Gafoor very knowledgeable, friendly and helpful.
I find her pleasant enough as a person, but she is dismissive and overly generalized when it comes to answering questions. She doesn't listen to symptoms, speaks over me, and rushes me out the door even when I've only asked one question. She doesn't give any empowering information which I find disappointing and disturbing. I have no confidence in her ability to help me be proactive with my health or to find anything abnormal should that happen. The front end staff are pleasant, but the waits are very long. The nursing staff are usually very abrupt and bordering on rude. I went to this clinic because of its close proximity to where I live, but it just isn't worth it.
