very caring
Usually Dr. Qadir takes her time and really listens, but on this day, the patient of another doctor was added to her schedule (overheard in the waiting room), and she was VERY rushed. She never told me what she suspected I had. I tried to explain that I had tried EVERYTHING she was suggesting. I just did not feel heard and believe it was a result of her being rushed and having extra patients added to her already busy schedule.

I could not be happier with the care I receive from Dr. Qadir. She is absolutely amazing, and genuinely cares about me. I will always have her as my PCP (as long as she is working in this area) as I can't imagine another doctor who would take the time and give the personal touch as Dr. Qadir does.
The doctor was very thorough, very kind, and did not seem in a hurry.
the wait time is a deal breaker. and she literally told me to take Tylenol for a week and ice the areas and let her know I'm a week how things are doing. that's for an er follow up visit. she could have told me that on the phone and saved me a precious 1.5 hours of my work day. plus the commute.
