The office was below hygienic standards, with a filthy feces encrusted bedpan in the patient bathroom, and a bloody gauze on the table next to the clean syringes in the exam room. The office completely messed up on the appointment, with the female technician insisting upon starting an IV, even though it was not part of the test the referring cardiologist ordered, and then, when the patient refused it, she rudely made him wait nearly an hour before calling him in for his ordered test. "If you had scheduled it correctly, you wouldn't have had to wait," she said. Really? I think Dr. Shariff's office made the mistake. A mis-communication in Dr. Shariff's office also made the technician claim one of the two tests that were ordered had already been done (it was not!). It was a dreadful experience, and I wouldn't send anyone to this place. We left, without the tests being done...frankly, with staff this rude, in an office is as dirty and poorly run as this one, we wouldn't trust a diagnosis.
