DO NOT VISIT THIS DOCTOR!!!!Not only is this doctor trying to bill my insurance for exams that were never done but she also made up a diagnosis that was completely inaccurate. When I called to talk to her about it she yelled at me and asked what should she bill my insurance for, she is the doctor she should know. Also, Dr. Faroqui??s office and reception are tiny and filthy! Dr. Faroqui will reuse anything she can, including a dried out alcohol prep wipe. The worst part of the whole experience was when the doctor opened my gown to do a breast exam, paused and used her gloved hand to press down the garbage in the trash can and then returned to me and started the exam. When I protested that she changed her gloved she said she already started. When I made her stop she then said ??it??s just paper?. I was horrified! I have been trying to get the office to give me a copy of my medical records for two months and they simply will not. Finally at my wits end, I called and got uppity with the receptionist because I am frustrated of 8 weeks and each time I am called I am told something different; well the receptionist screamed at me that ??your nobody, you??re not my sister, you??re not my mother, I don??t have to answer to you.?

Bottom line, Dr. Faroqui??s office has been uncooperative, lied, unhygienic and flat out rude! And I still didn??t mention the 55 minute wait before the visit!

I had an excellent experience with Dr.Faroqui. I have had some extraordinarily demeaning experiences with doctors and feel so relieved to of found a doctor, of any sort, that treats me with respect. She was the most thorough OB-GYN I've ever been to and am pretty certain that if the treatment (not finished yet
) doesn't clear up my issue she will continue to treat me until it is. She felt lumps in my breasts that have always been overlooked and brushed off as normal and gave me a referral to get an ultrasound. I would highly recommend this doctor to any woman. Thank you Dr.Faroqui!

One word to describe - Horrible. Yes, indeed a horrible experience. Dirty clinic, rude and unprofessional staff. I have been there twice both the time experience was unsatisfactory. One thing to ring the bell is how bad the patient feel about them is you can get the appointment right away for the very same day. That's the other thing that doc would not be there may be she is sleeping or eating; you may have to wait for another hour or an half to meet her. There must be better deals around so please don't waste your time and your insurance company's money. DON'T GO.

Back in 1985, at the tender age of 19, I was having an itchy vaginal problem. After trying to self medicate using those useless medicated douches, I scanned the yellowpages for a GYN. I was too embarrassed to ask anyone for a referral. I found a small boxed advertisment under GYN DOCTORS; titled "FOR WOMEN ONLY" Dr. Raufa Faroqui.

I found Dr. Faroqui to be professional, direct and thorough (which I like) and she treated my problem quickly. Through the years I've had other medical issues the doctor has treated and the only red flags through the years were the following:

1. 1986: After experiencing pelvic pain during intercourse I met with Dr. Faroqui and described the issue. She matter of factly looked at me and stated "Say away from rough sex." I was taken aback, of course, and being only 21 years of age I couldn't think of a reply to her statement. What was rough sex? I didn't know what constituted rough sex, just regular thrusting seemed rather rough to me at the time. After she said that, I just nodded and left. The pains weren't anything serious and only happened three other times during the last two decades.

2. 1999. I was having problems with vaginal dryness and soreness. I made an apointment, waited thirty minutes, and met with a colleague of Dr. Faroqui's. A white blond doctor I haven't seen before or since. I was a little bothered, but I just wanted help so I assumed the position. This doctor only needed a whiff of my nether regions to correctly diagnois my condition as bacterial vaginosis. I was cured within a week, but I did miss Dr. Faroqui on that visit.

3. 2005. Since 2005 every time I call for an appointment I'm asked if I've ever seen the doctor. I state "yes". I'm told they can't find my file. I tell them I've been a patient since 1985. This becomes so annoying.

4. 2008. I just went through the end of a long term relationship and I'll admit I was "dating" rather frequently. After a couple of months of sleeping around I was due for a checkup and sonogram to check on fibrods I've acquired. After the sonogram, Dr. Faroqui did a pelvic exam and I'm embarrassed to say that a "forgotten" condom was found. I was floored, I believed my last boyfriend who said he had the condom and disposed of it... three nights earlier. After removing it, Dr. Faroqui then asked "So... what do you do for a living?" I told her I'm an Executive Assistant for an entertainment company. She replied, "Oh." That was the first time she asked me about my employment. Did she think I was a hooker?

I've also referred a couple of friends to the doctor with positive results. A friend of mine was walking around with a yeast infection for over a month. How she endured that I don't know. She has previously seen a fancy Park Avenue male Anglo GYN and his expensive office visit and treatment didn't help my friend. She made an appointment in Dr. Faroqui and treatment was quick and successful. My friend thanked me profusely.

After all this I will continue to see Dr. Faroqui. Now that I'm in my 40's I'm thinking about a cosmetic procedure consultant.

Dr. Faroqui has been my Gyn for the past 16 yrs and I have to say that the wait was longer when she was an OB. Now everyone has off days and there were times and have been times when her staff has been a bit curt, but I have found that since she has switched floors that is no longer the case. For those who feel she focuses to much on her dermatological patients you don't get that her bread and butter are her GYN patients. Everybody has off days and Dr. Faroqui is no exception. Overall, she has been a terrific Dr who is willing to go the extra mile especially for her regulars and has always been upfront when something was not as it should be. Can't speak for the rest of you, but she is a Dr who cares, but she also feeds off of you if you are evil and nasty to her don't expect rainbows and sunshine.

I have seen Dr Faroqui for about 25 years and she delivered both my children. I was a bit hurt to find that Dr Faroqui is no longer involved with OB/GYN. I feel that Dr Faroqui staff should inform anyone who calls for OB/GYN appointment that Dr Faroqui is basically is no longer in this practice. The doctor is pursuing a new career. My insurance will pay the doctor for an appointment that was useless due to her new career change. Her staff is rude. Now I have to find a doctor for my daughter and myself..Thanks for nothing.

My experiences with Dr. Faroqui were awful and only got worse with each subsequent appt. I've finally switched doctors (I should have much sooner), after enduring cancelled appointments, over an hour waiting for my scheduled visits, staff that is incredibly rude and uneducated and a doctor that is sub-par. Unfortunately all of these negative reviews were not posted when I first researched local doctors, however the reviews now posted are overwhelmingly clear - DO NOT GO HERE!

I went here on a referral so I guess maybe this office has its good and bad days. The 3 times that I visited they were all bad. The staff is average. Getting an appointment was easy. The office was not clean. On 2 occasions, there were urine samples left in the bathroom over an hour and there were no paper towels. After my exam was complete - the doctor wiped her hand on my gown - i was shocked. Not very knowledgeable or forthcoming with information about condition. I did a lot of research online and was left frustrated after our session. Needless to say, I changed doctors and getting the records sent over was a whole new drama. Much better service out there...depending on what you can tolerate.

I've been with Dr. Faroqui for over 15 years and have found her to be very gentle, very knowledgeable, and very professional. I had many issues to deal with having both fibroids and endometriosis at the same time. I have never had a problem with her staff or wait time, usually 10-15 minutes tops. I recommended her to my sister, and she loved her.

I've visited Dr. Faroqui's office several times, and--despite showing up early--have waited an average of 1.5 hours to see her. The doctor herself is fine, but her staff is incredibly unfriendly, cold, rude, and often outright disrespectful. I finally decided to switch to an ob-gyn that's farther from my office.

Not since my very first pap smear had a pap hurt. Fine, they're not comfortable. But, this one hurt! Mind you, I just went in for a regular exam. No pre-existing conditions, infections, etc. that may have added to the aggravation. Thinking, "Oh, well. We all have bad days." I decided to follow up with her the following year. This time I exclaimed out loud, my discomfort was too much. She was so rough and abrupt. No dialogue. No warning. Further, the staff is horrendous. Had to follow up with some questions regarding a condition that arose. The few times I called they seemed incredibly bothered, asking if I realized how busy the doctor is. At one point, knowing I was going to stop by in about a month (to retrieve my files; changing doctors, naturally), the office person threw at me, "Why don't you just wait until you stop by." Incredulously, I balked, "A month from now??" As I prefaced to the woman, my questions had an immediate relevance to my health. To sum up, the staff and doctor seem to lack any sensitivity and regard for the patient. (I only gave her 1 star as 0 stars is not an option)

Dr. Raufa Faroqui is one of the best doctors I've ever seen. She always treats me with real compassion...however her staff is very cold and nasty sometimes. They speak to you like they're mad at you...and hangs up the phone while you're still talking.

I have been seeing Dr. Faroqui for the last 14 year, and Ive always been pleased with her services. She is a true professional, a great gyn. She has always taken time to explain my medical problems and procedures to me and performed them in a very satisfactory manner to me. Her staff is pleasant and are always able to accommodate my schedule. Thanks to them all. I would highly recommend Dr. Faroqui.

PROS: clean, caring, professional
CONS: late afternoon appts can take longer than am

I went to this doctor because my friend goes to her and told me she was great. I soon realized why. Raufa is a very kind, intelligent, and thoughtful doctor. I feel comfortable talking to her about embarrasing health problems that I have and she gives me all the help I could ask for. She recently started giving botox. Very clean office, nice employees and friendly atmosphere. I Would ABSOLUTELY reccomend this doctor.

I went to this doctor a few years ago, because I needed a quick appointment. She was close to where I worked, and she participated in my insurance plan. I should have known something was wrong when I got a same-day appointment as a new patient. Anyway...the office wasn't the cleanest, for starters. Then, the doctor spoke to me in a condescending manner, and was very unfriendly and curt. She was also rough during the pelvic exam (Ladies will understand what I mean by that). I definitely would NOT recommend a visit to this doctor.
