This is the BEST Doctor I have ever had!!

In all my years dealing with pulmonary difficulties.. No other Doctor has treated me so well as Dr. Farooq. He is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED if you ever have need of a doctor in the Troy NY Area. They also have a wonderful sleep lab and technicians there. I did not want to move away from the area, because I know I will miss him and do not know if I will ever find such an excellent Doctor again!
