Dr. Faruqi and his team are amazing. They were very efficient and always on time with my appointments. Luckily my time was short with them but I highly recommend their team
I was uneasy when I arrived for my appointment. Dr. Faruqui was calming, knowledgeable and encouraging. Very professional.
Franco was amazing in treating my 89 year old mother in law. He let us know everything he was doing and was so gentle with her.
Dr Faruqi was very thorough and answered all my questions before and after my colonoscopy. Also the wait time in office was very minimal which was nice.
He’s always so nice and gets right to the point of next step!
