Ratings for Dr. Sylvia Fahim
Dr. Fahim has saved my life on multiple occasions now. She is a lovely and compassionate doctor. Shortly after taking me on as a new patient, she saw on one visit that I needed to be at the hospital asap. Within 12 hours I underwent a life saving surgery. Several years later I was diagnosed with stage IV colon cancer and she pulled out all of the stops to get me to the best surgeons and oncologists. I'm strong and healthy because of those referrals. Recently, I had some blood work done and when she received a call from the lab at 5 am. She was on the phone with me shortly after and again had me in an ambulance to the hospital for urgent treatments. Her follow up with me and aftercare has been truly beyond expectations. Her knowledge helps me to get on the right path again and again. Her staff are wonderful ladies! Always kind. Give them a smile and a happy hello. You will always get it reflected back at you.
I am always disappointed when I visit this medical clinic. The staff is terrible, unfriendly, lack customer service and always look upset. Dr. Fahim always looks tired and quickly rushes through your appointment. She does not seem to really care about helping others or maybe it's just me, not sure. Dr. Faltas is my family doctor and although he is polite and friendly, he lacks understanding, empathy and listening skills. I am in the process of finding a new family doctor.
Dr Fahim is okay I can say but those receptionist are pathetic. I cannot believe Dr fahim haven't taken any action. They are rude and ignorant. She needs to make a change. Read the reviews. More reviews are against the receptionist then her.
Great staff and wonderful doctor. Dr. Fahim is very through and knowledge. She will look after you and you can be sure that you are getting the best care and advice. Your appointment will be very close to your appointment time and you can get same or next day appointments.
I would definitely not recommend her as your family doctor. She is more interested in filling her rooms than caring for her patients. A two hour wait in her waiting room is the norm and she barely gives you 10 minutes of your time when you do get to see her. Her staff is rude and terrible at organisation. Had her as my doctor for 5 years, and the difference between her practice and the practice of my current family doctor is gigantic.
She is a good doctor but both the receptionists are HORRIBLE. They have NO phone manners, no respect for the clients. They both should be kicked out immediately. I have seen them talking to clients disrespectfully in person. They are worst on the phone with no manners. The other day, I called them to ask for the doctor's timings. They assumed the doctor was my family doctor and instead of telling me her hours, she said, "You are her patient and don't even know your doctor's timings"? WHAT THE!?!? Who says that to a client inquiring about the doctor's timings? I am not sure how are they surviving there and why is the doctor so tolerant of their rude behaviors.
