I would not recommend this Dr. The first thing that creeped me out about him was his office, it is an old run-down motel that has been poorly converted into a "clinic." He has no real signs of income, his advertising looks like just went to a local poster maker and had them print out a bunch of things on cardboard and vinyl. He doesn't even have the money for a real sign outside of his "clinic." The second thing that caught my suspicions was that all of his "credentials" were black and white photocopies plastered over almost every wall in the lobby. The carpeting wasn't even fully tacked to the floor and the office reeked of some sort of mildew sprayed with a floral cleaning agent. I asked the "secretary" why they were located in a run down motel and she said "they had just moved from Corpus Christie and that they had only been in Arlington for a year and didn't know the area very well."I don't know about anyone else, but if I was a legitemate Dr. trying to gain new clientel in a new area I would not choose a run-down motel as my first location. Why couldn't he have gotten in to a regular office suite like all of the other Psychiatrists in town? Is there something wrong with his history that made a reputable clinic/hospital deny him residency?

Once we got in to see him (after waiting 30min past the appt time) he kept emphasizing his education to us, and telling us about how he taught at different colleges and went to Harvard and all this other study related material.....and that's fine except that usually Dr.'s don't harp on themselves and repeat the same educational/credential flim-flam in intervals every few minutes (repetatively), they usually focus on the patient and the patient's history. The way he kept emphasizing himself made me question if his edcation was really legit and it made me think that he was trying awfully hard to paint a picture of himself to me that probably didn't hold the complete truth.

He then went on with a power point presentation and trashed my daughter's previous pediatrician and his medication choices. He stated that "that is the last medication in the Galaxy that I would put her on." He ordered a blood test for her and then tried to say that he already knew what was wrong and what to give her after one not-so-focused-on-the-actual-patient-and-her-issues visit. Then, on top of everything else, when it came time for him to contact my daughter's current pediatrician (Dr. Fikkert), he refused to fax her any information and said he wouldn't do anything over the phone.......now why in the world would a legit Psychiatrist not want to work with or contact their patient's Pediatrician in order to schedule a simple blood test??? Overall I find Dr. Imam to be quite suspicious and I do not trust him with my child. I called my insurance agency and they asked if I wanted to file a complaint for his uncooperative professional behavior, I asked them if they have ever had any complaints about him before and all they could tell me was "If you feel uncomfortable with him then we reccomend that you change to a different Dr."........hmmmm.....sounds like great advice to me!

After the first meeting, we were very impressed. But the man we met the first time seemed to disappear. During the 2nd and 3rd visits, he threatened to terminate us because we had questions and he could not answer them. As a family, we felt our child's problems were more serious than he was acknowledging. He didn't want to do any testing to make further evaluations. He was rude and asked us to leave during the 3rd meeting. DO NOT GO TO THIS MAN. His office is dirty and shabby. He is so busy telling you about himself, he can't seem to take care of the patient in front of him. He may be great if you are only there for ADHD issues. He has lots of power points to show you on that. But if you dare to question and ask for information on anything else, he gets hostile. I think he is lacking a lot of training. He may have lots of papers on the wall indicating degrees, but I think he has forgotten most of what he learned.

I was a bit overwhelmed by all the information he was throwing at me, but I interjected and asked him to slow down and discuss a couple points with me. I'm grateful I did. My son's previous diagnosis by a PEDIATRICIAN for ADHD was not accurate.

Dr. Imam has overwhelming amounts of data available and it's easy to get overwhelmed. Do not hesitate to butt in and ask some questions. He's got plenty of data and is more than happy to share. Someone said in a review that he was rude and wouldn't answer questions -- which is not my experience at all. I know he will not refill prescriptions over the phone, because psychiatric & neurological conditions are touchy things. The prescriptions can have serious adverse effects that MUST be closely monitored.

We discussed the issues we might encounter with his peers in school and at home; and we discussed the prior medicine my son was on (Vyvanse). If you have your child on a psychostimulant on Concerta, Vyvanse, or Ritalin, I encourage you to ask him for his data on the possible side-effects. They are truly enlightening. He takes a very conservative stance with prescriptions, and wants to monitor closely. If you're looking for a doctor to slap a drug on it and call it a day, that's not going to happen.

Since Dr. Imam put my son on Intuniv, I feel like I have my real son back. We will be going further into depth in further appointments, but I'm pleased that we're on the right track.

Please check out who you are taking your child to! This dr. is a quack! You do NOT know the Dr Quzai Imam and that secretary that I just met! If you ask for a prescription change these are totally different people you are dealing with. I had to wait over an hour for this AND had the door shoved into my back by that secretary as I was leaving because of asking for a prescription change! We just had an apt the day before I asked for my child to go back to his same medication because I found out the other was more costly. I was forced to sign termination papers or they would NOT give me my kids scripts back before I left .... that I paid for the previous day!!! I have never been treated like this in a doctors office ... I never once raised my voice and cannot believe I was treated so UNPROFESSIONALLY!!!
Oh I did look up on the internet the drugs that he prescribed my child and one is known to cause some very serious side effects .... BEWARE!
Yes you are getting appointments really fast and timely because his clientele is very few also others are aware of this doctor from San Antonio. Too our visits were miserable with no AIR conditioning and made to listen to HIS life story .. UGH! He is so full of HIMSELF ... look at all the pictures of himself all over his office. If you love your child don't get mixed up with this one!!

This psychiatrist really treats you like a human being. Dr. Imam really interacts well with your kids and then all about the treatment with the parents for than an hour. He is the best child psychiatrist that we have ever seen.
