Seema Latif MD has been working as a Pediatrician for nearly 20 years. As a Pediatrician and a mother, Dr. Latif understands how stressful doctor visits can be, and she works hard every day to help patients and their families feel at home. Dr. Latif originally studied Ophthalmology in Pakistan, but after moving to the United States and raising three children she decided to change her medical focus to Pediatrics. Dr. Latif says she likes Pediatrics because it gives her the opportunity to help parents by keeping children healthy. “I see a lot of nervous families, and people who just want their children to feel alright”, says Dr. Latif. “As a mother of three children, I understand what that's like because I've had that experience.” Dr. Latif has lived in Downey for many years and has put down roots in the community. In her free time, Dr. Latif loves to garden and work on crafts projects.

My experience wasn't what I enjoyed. The doctor wasn't specific with her instructions that it made me feel like I was doing everything wrong, she was also nosy trying to tell me how I should live my life.

We ha e been seeing Dr. Latif and (name removed) for 13 years. Both of them are amazing and listen and guide us through vaccine and dr recommendations. I trust them both with my daughters care. Very compassionate and caring with my child.

I understand that the day my daughter was seen, the office was short staffed. However, I checked in before two other patients and they were taken in first. Otherwise, I always have a pleasant and positive experience every visit.

The doctor sent her to do a study with the neurologist, but she did not realize that it was for adults and not for a minor. This happened since Friday and to this day I have not been able to have an appointment to have her studies done, thank you.

My daughter loves her new Dr she feels comfortable talking to her or asking her any questions she may have, it is her second year with them. I'm glad we made a good choice putting her there.

I wish I can get my $30 Co-Pay back. The Doctor didn't do much to my child, she knew nothing of his rash. So, basically went in there spend $30 for her to say, I don't know what that rash can be

This doctor didn't really listen to my concerns, as a parent. I will not be going back to this doctor. The end.

As always it is a great experience with Dr. Latif and her staff.

Besides the wait time and the fact that the documents I was given to fill out after checking in that day were unapplicable to me, the doctor and nurses that helped me were polite and showed professionalism. Also, I was pleased with how fast it was scheduling my appointment beforehand.

I specifically asked Dr. Latif for a note to clear my daughter for school attendance the next day. She said she would have the nurse call me back. I never got a call back so I called the office and they took down the information to fax the note. I assumed a note was faxed and took my daughter to school the next day. I later was called to pick up my daughter as a note was never received. I had specifically talked with Dr. Latif about needing the note before the next day and she acknowledged. Very upsetting experience for my daughter who had to sit outside until I picked her up.

Dr Latif is very patient and thoughtful as she checked out my daughter.
