Referral & Patient Info

Patient Information

Since 1997, our practice has been providing excellent care in a patient focused environment. Our staff is highly experienced and seeks to treat patients as we would want to be treated.

Communication is the key. By listening carefully and taking the time necessary at appointments to answer your questions, we can provide better care and you’ll feel more comfortable. Dr. Firdos Sheikh invests her time towards building strong relationships between her patients not only as their doctor but also maintains a friendly relationship even after treatment has been completed.

When you call, patient appointments are set as quickly as possible and we make every effort to keep wait times in our office at a minimum. As a courtesy, we ask that you give our office 24 hours advance notice if for some reason you need to cancel your appointment.

What to bring to your first appointment:

* Your insurance card
* Physician referral forms if required by insurance
* A list of current prescription or over-the-counter medications you are taking, including dose and frequency
* Pertinent information about your medical and surgical history
* Any pertinent records, films or test results you may have
* Any patient forms you might have filled out in advance (see below)

Testimonial

WHAT OUR PATIENTS SAY ABOUT US

  • "“I had not seen Dr Sheikh for almost four years She had taken excellent care of my husband who died a few months ago. He often remembered her but was too weak to make it to her office. I was feeling very depressed and remembered how well she had taken care of my husband and i wanted to see her as none of the doctors were helping me. I could not remember her full name, and i suddenly found her card which fell out of my husbands book. I made an appointment immediately I was so pleased to see her now more beautiful, younger and smarter."
  • "Her office is the best I have ever seen and she decorated it all by herself, She greetedme with her soft sincere smile and after about 30 mins i was feeling almost a 100 percent better. I had to give her a hug and I did. Inspite of all that she has been through her healing power has gotten even better. She listens, she connects and she heals, as you walk into her office the healing starts as her warmth is all over in the paintings, the wall colour and her flowers. I am so glad I found her. No other doctor has had that impact on me and i am almost 72 yrs. God Bless her and I hope her healing power will bring the same comfort it gave me. I recommend her undoubtedly. You must see her office, Its a piece of art and she told me that she is an artist herself!”"
  • "“She is one of the best doctors. Everytime i have been in her office, everyone in the waiting room has told me that she is worth the wait, and they are absolutely right. She is the only doctor who listens. I have had more relief with my pain than any doctor i have ever been to. She recently moved her office and was busy settling down, during that time she was very busy. Dont go by one bad experience. We all have those, but what is more important is how many patients she helps. Her waiting room would not discuss about her positively if she was not good, If you did not like her it is indeed your loss I recommend her highly to everyone”"
