Dr. Mahmood was extemely educated in what she spoke about and what she explained to me. She set up a game plan for me so that I can achieve my desired result, PREGNANCY. As someone who has been trying for 7+ years to get pregnant this is the best that I have felt after a doctor's visit. She let me cry and understood my frustrations and was nothing but encouraging!

September 13, 2017
Dr. Mahmood seems to know her stuff. She changed one of my medications at my first visit. Time will tell. I had to wait almost 2 hours my first visit. Someone else was in the office complaining that they had been on hold for over an hour. I also experienced long hold times (Sometimes 1/2 hour)when trying to change my appt. date. I believe I checked back 3 times to try to change my appt. I made my original appt. over a month in advance.
September 11, 2017
One of the best doctors I've seen! Always asks Pertinent questions.Everything has always been covered at each visit. Know what to do till next appointment.
September 11, 2017
Best Doctor hands down !
August 31, 2017
The staff was friendly when i was there. Calling in to make the appt.was a nightmare. In order to schedule an appt i was required to give them my medical records. That was a hassle to have released. Earliest appt was 2 months. A day before my appt. they called telling me they didn't have my medical records and to bring all that with me because they weren't sure why i was going. Which is ridiculous due to what i went through to schedule my appt. Dr. Mahmood though was great! she listened, gave me explanations, not as detailed as I would have liked. Would have liked to know the game plan. Maybe I would have liked some more time to go over more concerns.
August 28, 2017
Dr. Ghasak Mahmood is very knowledgeable, resourceful, attentive with a no-nonsense style of communication, which I very much appreciate. Dr. Mahmood's approach makes the visit and discussion all the more comfortable.
August 28, 2017
This provider was the first endocrinologist I have ever made an appointment with, and it was based on a referral. She is very sharp and knows her field, and is also flexible enough to listen to the patient and find a balance of proposed treatment, while inviting the patient rather than demanding they obtain such treatment. Her brain works faster than she can get the words out, and for me, this shows a mind of multiple sources of information to include an intuitive touch. Since I have only been to my initial visit and had a request for bloodwork instead of being given any form of treatment until the results come back, I cannot comment on any personal results yet. I am very optimistic.
August 24, 2017
I had an outstanding doctor, knowledgeable & understanding.
August 24, 2017
Staff and doctor are invested in your healthcare. They are kind, patient and have good listening skills. They give you time for questions and provide information so you gain insight to your illness. I always feel encouraged, never feel rushed and a genuine relationship with my doctor. I feel we are a team .

Dr. Mahmood really knows what she is talking about when it comes to your health and the care of it. You can sense her genuine focus on getting you better and always has a plan of attack to get it account mplished. As for myself, my health was bouncing up and down before Dr. Mahmood took over my health. She completely turned my health around and as of today, I am all off meds, and my symptoms have completely reversed and returned to normal. I haven't felt this good and with as much energy in over twenty years. Thank you Dr. Mahmood.
