This is one RUDE Dr. Allow me to explain. A long time ago I received a diagnosis of Bi-Polar which I've aleays disagreed with. The first thing I did when I started seeing Faheem was explain to her that I don't feel that diagnosis was accurate. However all she did, it seems, is look at my Medical history and base her opinion on what some previous doctors have said (not all have agreed on the term bi-polar) instead of her interactions with me. For about 5 bi-weekly visits she kept giving me medications for bipolar disorder. So I stopped going to her for a while. Because it's not an accurate diagnosis. After about a month and a half I decided to give her one more try. That was my mistake! When I returned for what would be my LAST visit, she sounded more like a prosecuting attorney arguing that my diagnosis was bi-polar. At one pont she actually said to me "If you're not bi-polar, then why did you just lose your job?" Whoa. Waits minute. What kind of thing is THAT to say to someone who's in her "care". Some bedside manner! That was completely rude, uncalled for and no way for a Doctor to talk to her patients. I've seen a mix of reviews for this "doctor". All the negative reviews talking about her rudeness are very believable to me now.
She is rude and refused to take to me when I had a problem with my medication because I missed one appointment.
Thanks to Dr. Fahim's support, my daughter is living independently and functioning as normally as possible. It took time, but she got us there, The doctor stuck with us in spite of our differences and listened to me/my daughter, changing medications and brainstorming solutions. She became the safe port in the storm created by mental and learning disabilities. My story has a happy ending because of her.
She is a horrible therapist. Treats everyone bad.
I could not be happier with Dr. Fahim. She's was extremely thorough with her initial evaluations. She even meets with the parents before seeing your child I have never had another psych do that. She seems to want the whole background of your child. She switched my daughter's meds several time until they were adjusted properly. She's doing great now! She's often very busy but I understand why. Front Office staff is very professional and courteous....wait time could be better tho
At first I thought Dr. Fahim was on the money. i was taking my daughter to visit her. I felt confident in our meetings that what I told her was confidential. Noooooooo. Whatever I told her in our one on one meetings together concerning my daughter she went back and told my daughter everything. My daughter is very sensitive and felt that i betrayed her trust because of what i had told Dr. Fahim. She refuses to speak to me. This is the last thing i needed in my life because my daughter has some emotional issues going on. I do not know why a psychiatrist would do this. It should actually be the total opposite. I didnt go to college but i feel i could be a better psychiatrist than her. Instead of bringing my daughter and I closer this has caused quite a bit of turmoil in our lives. Also i need to add she tends to give quite a bit of medication at once instead of starting off with one and working up if needed. As you can tell I am quite upset and frustrated and hope that this will help anyone needing a review.
Jumps from medication to medication. Extremely long waiting time because the office over books. Very disappointed. A doctor for mental health should go above and beyond but she does not seem to be too concerned about a patients well being.
I have been treated for anxiety and panic disorder my entire life. Panic attacks are not fun and for all who have them regularly you know how debilitating they can be. My doctor retired and I was looking for a new one close to work so I went to this doctor, should have done my research. She made me feel like a junkie and pill popper just looking for drugs. She also called my pharmacy DURING MY FIRST VISIT to get my prescription history while I was still there. The minute she did that I knew she was no real doctor and cared not at all for her patients. Very disappointed that in this 'doctor'...maybe she should re-read the Hippocratic oath because her attitude towards me was harmful.
she atarted of ok and then when i hsad a side effect from the medicine she told me i was lying , she also told my husband she feels badly for him for having to deal with me . she shouldnt be treating anybody. not sure where she recieved her medical degree
I have been a patient with Dr. Fahim for many years. She is a good caring doctor however her current staff is the worst I have seen in a doctor's office. The competency of the billing Manager is laughable. They keep terrible records then prevent you from seeing the doctor until you straighten out their mess. This is now a recurring theme. It is time for me to find a new doctor.
My husband and I are thrilled to have finally met a competent doctor, who cares enough to take the time to get to know our son. We have tried for years to find the right doctor. Dr Fahim always takes the time to listen to our concerns and we finally have a proper diagnosis. He is now doing fantastic in school as well. Our only regret is that we didn't find her sooner!
This was a terrible experience for my 9 year old daughter. Dr. Farheem does nothing more then throw pills at children. When she changed my child's medication my daughter started pulling on her eyebrows a little. I expressed my concern and the Dr. F only upped dosages and suggested adding more medication for this new âtickâ, which I refused. Before I knew it my daughter pulled out all her eyebrows and lashes and was now working on her arm. I spoke to my pharmacist and he said without a doubt it was this medication. I stopped the medications and talked to the doctor who wouldnât even make eye contact, (I was extremely upset that she did not even care.) and suggested I make my next appointment with the pharmacist. I told the good Dr. that I agree she would receive better care at the drug store then in her office. Which is a complete mess by the way. On our second appointment the DOCTOR was running 30-40 min late. I told them I could not stay any longer and had to return to work. They wanted to charge me $50 for that experience. I had to stay long enough to tell Dr. F myself that I had to go in order to avoid there fee. DO NOT TAKE YOUR CHILD TO THIS QUACK!
El servicio es pesimo, al principio me devolvieron la llamada en minutos por ser un paciente nuevo, luego de la primera cita me dieron tratamiento para ADD y otra pastilla mas que me envio al hospital, trate de llamar como 20 veces para explicarle como me sentia y nunca me devolviÃ³ la llamada, luego me dio mal la receta para nuevo tratamiento, la farmacia, mi seguro y yo tratamos de llamarla durante una semana para que arreglara el problema y no se tomaba el tiempo para contestar ni devolver la llamada, es increible lo desorganizada que es, lo sucio del lugar y el mal servicio, ademas por su acento no se le entiende NADA.. lo peor de todo es que solo le importa el $$$ y no sus pacientes cobra al seguro sumas enormes por 10 minutos que dura en consulta, ademas me cobro dinero adicional el cual no estaba supuesta hacerlo.. es pesimaaa! SAVE YOUR MONEY y su tiempo y NOOO vayan a verla, la peor doctora que he tenido en mi vida y el peor Staff que existe
At first she came on as very caring and it was extremely easy to get an appointment. However as time went on she proved to be quite uncaring: an extremely poor listener and a know it all who had no regard at all for the fact that her patient actually has a brain in his head and the ability to distinguish real side effects from psycho somatic ones do to "anxiety." My son came to her at the age of 18 with extreme anxiety and concurrent psycosomatic symptoms. She prescribed Prozac and Risperdone, two excellent drugs that worked rapidly and gave him his life back. After a while though, he became more anxious due to either the Prozac or the Risperdone. Initially she thought he just needed a higher dose which is undestandable. But when the anxiety got worse on a higher dose she refused to acknowledge that it was most likely a side effect of the drug and not the original anxiety. She just kept upping the dosage of the Risperdone until my son was experiencing very uncomfortable side effects which were driving him insane. When he told her this she refused to acknowledge his concerns and responded by once again upping the dose. The same side effect proceeeded to get worse and occurr more often with each dosage raise. But she kept insisting that it was all in his head and it was "just" his "anxiety". Finally he ordered her to take him off the drug and she did so albeit grudgingly. As soon as the drug was removed the side effects disappeared completely never to return. However she refused to admit anything. She pretended to not remember what he was talking about. She was so reluctant to take him off Risperdone, she took him off Prozac instead. This is not understood because we had a gut feeling the Prozac was not the drug that was causing the problem. She then put him on Anafranil which caused his anxiety to disappear but made him angry and arrogant. Once again she refused to listen to him and told him it was "just" his "anxiety". He finally became so disgusted that he decided he didn't want any meds and he ordered her to wean him off. She became angry and barely gave him instructions on how to wean. He is now in a psychiatric unit of a major hospital with depression spiraling out of control and someone trailing him day and night because he had suicidal ideation. She never listened to him, nor did she take seriously his concerns over side effects, or any concerns that he had. She was bored by him and only interested in being paid and doling out prescriptions. She has turned him against psychiatric meds and psychiatry in general, and he now refuses to get help for the obvious mood disorder that she failed to diagnose.
Very professional, very sincere doctor. Minimum accent, explains everything very clearly, makes you feel comfortable, which is what a psychiatrist should do. Wait time was minimum.
Dr. Fahim is amazing. She is courteous, professional, and knowledgeable. The only thing is the wait time is a little bit much, but overall great experience.
Gave my child Risperidone and paxil for a year and then quickly changed his medication to prozac without easing him off the other drug. My 13 year old suffered terribly with withdrawal symptoms. I almost took him to he hospital. When I called her to discuss this she wouldn't admit this was happening. She is a terrible listener and has a know-it-all attitude. My son hated her and he likes almost everyone. She has no bedside manor and doesn't really care about her patients. Go elsewhere!!!
After repeated calls and left message, no one from this office ever returned my call. Highly unprofessional.
It seemed clear to me that Dr Fahim made a diagnosis regarding my condition before I ever opened my mouth. She was condescending, didn't listen when I spoke (she repeatedly got key facts of my situation confused or incorrect), and yawned continually throughout our discussion. Do yourself a favor and seek professional help elsewhere.
After Dr. Fahim prescribed my child Adderall, Rrisperdone,& Depskote my child began to get very agggresive toward my entire household. e had to take him to crissis on several occassions and had to spend time at summit oaks mental hospital.When we stopped giving him the medication he started to be more like the child we had all knew and loved before he startd taking the medication Dr.Fahim prescibed .
Dr. Fahim, Gives miss diagnosis to our children so she can use the reaction for research purpose not for the sake of helping our children. She would rather get rich.
Might as well be a vending machine for perception drugs, I could have gotten anything I asked for, and she didn't check in, or care how I was doing. Definitely, do NOT work with her!
Dr Fahim treated my daughter in a comnpletely unprofessional manner. She shared with her confidential information and prescribed a course of treatment without discussing it with us the parents first. She did much dasmage to the situation. When suggested she have some kind of relationship with a patient before telling them how messed up they are, she said it is not her job to establish a relationship. Then she blamed us for the problems, despite diagnosing her with bipolar. Her attitude was rude, unprofessional, and when told she talks like she knows everything, her response was I do.
After I got referral for Dr Fahim was able to schedule appointment in one phone call. She is courteous and has excellent manners. Have been her patient for several years and would highly recommend her.
She is extremely difficult to get an appointment with and she doesn't make herself available even if you have a crisis. It takes days or weeks for her to return a phone call.
