Always a great experience. Even when diagnosed 2-3 years ago.

Dr. Yasmeen is a great doctor and she took the time to explain everything I needed to know regarding diabetes. She also explained my medication and test that I will need in the future due to being a new heart transplant patient. I met her after my heart surgery and it's been a great experience having her on the team.

March 19, 2020 8:11 PM

The experience was good and informative. We discussed my condition and a plan to continue my progress.

March 19, 2020 8:11 PM

March 14, 2020 1:34 PM

my experiences have usually been positive. there have been times when I've had to call, and there seemed to be a breakdown in communication, as a didn't receive a call back or any answer to a question I had raised.

She listened to everything I researched.

March 12, 2020 10:05 AM

The wait time was really long, this was the second time that I waited over 50 min to see my provider. I had to take time off from work to ensure I'm there on time. My suggestion is to call patients if the provider is running really far behind.

November 30, 2019 7:36 PM

November 11, 2019 11:00 PM

the wait time was too long for the short duration of the time that I had with my doctor.

November 11, 2019 11:00 PM

I see Dr. Yasmeen every 3-4 months and I like her but the wait time is too long. I almost would rather schedule a virtual visit with her since there is really no need for me to go to the office that often.

I enjoy Dr Yasmeen!
