Dr. Mahmood is a very efficient doctor. I think she's wonderful. She listens and she gives you the best advice. You just have to follow it, and I think I've done so well with her, I trust her a lot for my physician. So anyway, I just hope everything she continue to always be like this because she's really a wonderful doctor. Thank you.

I felt like she motivated me to continue on trying to lose weight on my own first. But also is willing to run labs and go the extra mile to know more. I really felt she cares not only for me but for her patients.

I waited 5 months for this appt and seems like she was rushed the whole time didn't even let me ask questions. She just explained how we will control my issues and left. And my next appt I'm not even going to see her do to no openings.

I really like the doctor. I like her staff. My only complaint is that when I call them I have to wait long time on the line before somebody answers. But when they answer, they are very helpful and very kind, very knowledgeable.

I hope PIH decides to bring back Cigna insurance, otherwise I will not be able to go to PIH network.

This with endocrinology and it's extremely crowded, and It's really hard. When I originally called, they were going to give me a get me in until March, and then I texted my doctor my GP, and she eventually got me in obviously a lot sooner but, you know, the wait time to get in and do regularly is crazy. And so, something needs to be done. They need to get more endocrinologists or something because I they got all those diabetes people that have to be seen.

I made a mistake on rating, the staff. I would give them a 1 and I already expressed my concern to the people involved.

No one told me I had to register downstairs before going to see the Dr. I was in the waiting room over an hour before I found out I had to register downstairs.
October 06, 2021
Dr. M is honest, straight forward. She listens. Always supportive and encouraging.
October 04, 2021
To improve I would try to answer the call more faster because when you call, sometimes you're on the phone for 45 minutes, waiting for them to answer.
October 04, 2021
She is everything I hoped for - caring, competent and attentive.
