November 15, 2019 11:00 PM

Dr.Yasmeen is amazing and professional. I just recently became ill within the past year and she explained everything thoroughly and listened to all my concerns. I feel extremely lucky to have found such a very very smart Endocrinologist!!

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.

November 10, 2019 11:00 PM

I enjoy Dr Yasmeen!

November 1, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Yasmeen is my diabetes doctor, she is always concerned with my health condition and calls me when I do good. Dr Yasmeen went over my condition, gave me an exam and we went over my prescriptions.

Dr. Yasmeen and her staff are wonderful. When I need to call the office, I always ask for X, her certified diabetes educator.

excellent and very helpful

May 19, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Yasmeen was very caring, listened, and was open and honest. She made a point to ask what I wanted out of the visit and then took the time to answer my questions and insure my needs were met. I trust her with my care and would highly recommend her to anyone needing an endocrinologist.

May 19, 2019 7:00 PM

It was excellent. I am always pleased with my care when visiting this provider.

I'm very happy to meet the doctor yasmmin

April 22, 2019 7:00 PM

You could use better signage in the lobby. I had no idea where the doctors office was and found it by wandering around. Dr. Yasmeen was very caring and showed concern even about issues that I was not seeing her about.

April 21, 2019 7:00 PM

very good, professional.Thanks

April 6, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Yasmeen is an excellent doctor. She is attentive and is cognizant of the latest advances in her field. I trust her judgement.

Very good

March 10, 2019 7:00 PM

I appreciated not feeling rushed. Excellence. My nurse was amazing.

March 5, 2019 6:00 PM

Overall good.

February 24, 2019 6:00 PM

She was very informative and talked about best options.

February 17, 2019 6:00 PM

Very short.. She checked me out, told me, without running tests, because my thyroid antibodies were high, that my presumed Hyperthyroidism was not the case and that I'm depressed. She kept asking me personal questions regarding depression in front of her Scribe that I was not comfortable discussing. She sent her MA in the room to give me a summary of what took place, NOTHING, gave me her business card and told me to call her if I needed anything (she said she can't help me, why would I call her?) and sent me on my way. I was VERY emotional and it took me 20 minutes to get myself together and leave because I felt helpless, I've been sick since October and NO ONE wants to help me.

February 16, 2019 6:00 PM

great

February 11, 2019 6:00 PM

always awesome

February 11, 2019 6:00 PM

Dr. Yasmeen was excellent and made me feel very comfortable and was informative. I realized there are additional changes I'd like to make. She's very approachable when you have questions.

February 11, 2019 6:00 PM

I had scheduled an appointment with this provider through the call center. When I showed up to my appointment, the receptionist was unable to check me in because she said my appointment was with a different doctor (one I had never seen before). It became apparent that the call center personnel scheduled me incorrectly. The receptionist explained the situation to Dr. Yasmeen, and they fit me into a same-day appointment. I was incredibly grateful for their help, especially because it was no fault of their own. I was happy to be seen like I thought I was going to that day, but it did cause problems as I am a nursing mother, and did not expect (or prepare) to be at the doctor's office for such a long time, due to the call center's mistake.

February 7, 2019 6:00 PM

Excellent provider!! Very caring/understanding & knowledgeable!!

February 7, 2019 6:00 PM

This provider usually has a "helper" taking notes for her. The quality of my visits has diminished, she included info on the summary with no explanation as to what specifically it meant.

January 30, 2019 6:00 PM

Dr. Yashmeen is always prompt and she always makes me feel like she has my best interest/health in mind.

January 30, 2019 6:00 PM

Dr. Yaseem is friendly and supportive. She is open to listening to me and she answers my questions. She takes the time to educate me on my healthcare and how I can maintain good healthcare.

January 29, 2019 6:00 PM

she seems competent enough

January 29, 2019 6:00 PM

Dr. Yasmeen asks questions and listens to my answers and anything else I want to share with her. I feel she is extremely compassionate. I feel she"gets me" and understands my background and where I'm coming from both medically and personally. Without a doubt she is the best doctor I have ever had.

January 29, 2019 6:00 PM

Excellent

January 29, 2019 6:00 PM

excellent visit however the nurses were not very friendly this could have been due to getting acquainted with a new computer system.

January 29, 2019 6:00 PM

Provider seemed knowlegable. Washed hands.Polite

January 26, 2019 6:00 PM

I think the doctor and her assistants are fantastic. very professional yet friendly and personal. The telephone system is awful. I dont think I have ever had a good experience calling this office due to an inefficient IVR. Also, when you finally get the phone to ring to speak to a person it takes forever for them to answer. The office staff, although courteous when they finally call you over, do not acknowledge you when you enter the suite. They ignore people waiting to get checked in. They have personal conversations while you are waiting. Not well run in my opinion.

January 26, 2019 6:00 PM

organized

January 25, 2019 6:00 PM

dr. Yasmeen is an excellent doctor. always pleasant and never rushes you. also listens to what you have to say.

January 25, 2019 6:00 PM

I was glad to have the services of an experienced specialist.

January 25, 2019 6:00 PM

good

January 25, 2019 6:00 PM

This was the worst endocrinologist I've seen in 29 years of care. She was disrespectful, rude and lacked any alternatives to surgical removal of my thyroid. She put down nutrition. She chided my daughter for drawing stick figures on her business card after a 75 minute wait. She confused me with a diabetic patient and couldn't seem to understand I don't have diabetes. Also I came to her to find alternative approaches to treating my 29 year diagnosed Hashimoto's and she treated me like I was a dumb bumpkin. I've got a doctorate and work in the medical profession myself. Maybe get to know the person in front of you.

January 24, 2019 6:00 PM

very knowledgeable and encouraging

January 24, 2019 6:00 PM

I don't feel like I was taken seriously

January 24, 2019 6:00 PM

Dr. Yasmeen is always accompanied by a student. She is rushed and dismissive and is not interested in discussing what is going on in terms of anything that does not directly accord with what she wants to discuss She has gotten worse st spending more than 5 minutes and then just leaving.

January 24, 2019 6:00 PM

Dr Yasmeen is a great doctor. She is one of those doctors that all the 'students/residents' should need to study under.

January 7, 2019 6:00 PM

For my initial visit I came early to fill out paperwork - was told they had my HMO referral records, no paperwork to fill out. I waited a long time to see Dr. Yasmeen. She cut me off. She kept asking about my sugars, diabetes - I kept trying to tell her I was there for my thyroid. I've had thyroid issues for 29 years. She insisted she would re-test me to confirm I really have Hashimoto's and test my cortisol to see if elevated from from prolonged steroid use. I asked for alternatives to stop my thyroid from growing, prevent nodules - she said she places no stock in nutrition, etc., she either gives prescription meds or recommends a thyroidectomy. I expressed concern over thyroid removal if my case is autoimmune and she had zero input. She could easily be replaced by a laptop computer. She was cold, uncaring and dismissive. I've seen endocrinologists for decades and she's the worst I've ever encountered! She insisted on a follow up appointment after my labs came in to reiterate the same thing she told me at my initial appointment - total thyroidectomy! Zero alternatives. Then she said I don't have Addison's - she forgot why we were measuring my cortisol levels.

December 3, 2018 6:00 PM

Very good.

November 26, 2018 6:00 PM

I was so impressed with Dr. Yasmeen compassionate, knowledgeable, thoughtful care, I wrote her a thank you/fan letter! She is a super doc!

November 16, 2018 6:00 PM

excellent

November 12, 2018 6:00 PM

Since she is retiring to Florida due to father's health, I will miss her. we did discuss a replacement with her service.

November 11, 2018 6:00 PM

Front desk was rude and crabbyDr was wonderful

November 6, 2018 6:00 PM

I have complete confidence in my Doctor

November 5, 2018 6:00 PM

very caring doctor

October 24, 2018 7:00 PM

Very thorough. We dicussed best option plans for diabetes. Also added medications.

October 16, 2018 7:00 PM

Dr. was genuinely involved in my progress from my recent health setbacks. Very familiar with my history and discussed my overall health and maitenance regimen. Made specific suggestions to improve my AiC numbers and ordered blood tests to check my progress. Very personable and enjoyable to be with!

October 16, 2018 7:00 PM

very good

October 15, 2018 7:00 PM

Dr. Yazmeen and the office staff are extremely attentive, professional and thorough. I highly recommend her to anyone who needs an endocrinologist.
