Always a good listener and helpful + shows concern for me. I like him very much

Reviewed on Oct 7, 2022

My only comment is that I would like to do/receive a followup call with Dr. Hashmi to directly discuss my Dad's condition/case, so that I'm fully aware of what he believes in his expertise will be the ongoing course of treatment, so I plan to call his office to schedule a call.

Reviewed on Oct 7, 2022

Again, I'm SO very GRATEFUL for Dr. Hashmi making the time in his busy schedule to see/assess my Dad-- it put a lot of concerns to rest and to finally know that he has been prescribed medication which will hopefully subdue/counteract his "odd behaviors" (which are out of his normal wheelhouse), is a HUGE relief to me!

Nurse and Fellow were excellent and spent alot of time with us. Once Doctor was with us, he was excellent as well. No rush. Spent a great deal of time explaining and discussing treatments.

Reviewed on Feb 17, 2022

It was a good experience. The wait was quite long. I will never fault having to wait, if the cause for the wait Is due to giving patients the quality of time and explanation that Dr. Hashmi provided to me in assessing my health and planning for my care, thereafter. I feel confident in his ability to deliver exceptional care for me.
