Specialties

Dr. Farida N Awan has the following 2 specialties

  • Adolescent Medicine

    Adolescent specialists are doctors who have advanced training in the health issues that adolescents face. These physicians deal with issues like the onset of puberty, reproductive health, eating disorders, irregular periods, mood changes, drugs and pressures from home and school. For girls entering adulthood, adolescent specialists can act as both pediatrician and gynecologist, so they only have to see one doctor for all their needs.

  • Pediatrics

    A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
    While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
    Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.

That's a no go

The first thing I noticed about this office besides how small it is is the lack of cleanliness ** mold on the ceilings.. Or a dark dust accumulation ... Dirty floors ... Musty BO smell very prominent & Everything looked to me that if you weren't sick when you went in you would be when you left...but instead of walking right out I stuck it out to see if the Dr was worth it .... That answer is No Lol . The other reviewer was SPOT ON when she said she has set questions that she asked & cuts you off & doesn't listen ... I told her NUMEROUS times we were only there for a follow up from my daughters ear infection ( she was already diagnosed by a great Dr but bc of Medicaid stipulations we had to find another Dr) anyways yhis Dr made me late for work spent two hours talking to me about irrelevant information & problems that she has personally & with her child ... Very inconsiderate bc I told her we just needed to know if her ears were clear or if she needed a stronger antibiotic & she would NOT do so .... Plus her basket with stethoscope & light viewer thing did not look clean . Other offices have the disposable tips & put a clean one on in front of you hers was in her basket & she pulled it out without me knowing if it had been used on the last patient .... I could go on but in conclusion horrible visit ... I think her excess talking & talking over you & cutting you off is not cultural but RUDE & that she would only appeal to those who don't understand basic anatomy & how the body basically works

Five Stars

I have impressed with how thorough and knowledgeable she is. I wasn't satisfied with their previous doctor and have been more than satisfied so far. She has a more natural approach to medicine with nearly unmatched compassion and ethics. She is not only a wonderful doctor but, she has a humanitarian spirit as well.

She needs to listen to her patients

Dr. Awan won't let you get a word in. She cuts you off before you can tell her your child's problem. She seems very arragant and the office was so small and dirty looking with large signs everywhere telling you to take your child's diaper in a plastic bag outside with you. Tissue paper was on the floor and she never gave me the chance to express my child's difficulties. She had set her own questions and only wanted you to answer that, then she had a nursing student in their and said to her let's make this quick, like my child didn't matter. Just horrible.
