i unfortunately have had to see three doctors until i saw dr ash he is truly the best doctor that ihave encountered so far. he takes the time to listen and hear you out. the other doctors just hustled me out the door with several medications, it felt like russian roulette to say the least but not with dr ash. he hears you out and gives you good verbal advice and i feel like that is very important when dealing with emotional distress. yes you will have a slight wait on your initial visit but that's life.

It felt as though he was rushing through the appointment and jumping to diagnoses after a couple of minutes after makingme wait for literally 2 hours. The office staff got defensive when I brought up the excessive wait times. Really unprofessional.

I didn’t check a single star. The receptionists in this office are terrible at scheduling, answering phones, or simple instructions as to call in a prescription etc. Ive never waited less than 3 hours it’s usually a 4 hour wait, andwhen I asked if they can call me 5 min before my appointment they just blow it off and never phone you to come back. The Doctor at this practice is actually a great Doctor, his staff just inadequate and needs some training as to how to run a medical front desk , phone edicasy, and scheduling. The appointments must be set for 15 minutes long meanwhile, the patients talk for 30-40 min causing an overbook. I’m considering finding a new Doctor solely based on the front desk staff at this office!

The office was crazy hectic. I almost went home because I had to wait nearly an hour after my scheduled time. I'll probably give him one more try, but after that not sure.

I've been searching for a good psychiatrist for several months now and had almost given up when I found Dr. Elshafei. He's extremely knowledgable and actually explains his knowledge and recommendations to you. He was able to quickly determinewhat my issue with past medications had been and offer adjustments to fix it. The wait time is a bit ridiculous (I waited almost 3 hours the first time I came), but honestly the quality of care is worth it. Just be sure to bring a book.

Nice guy, but very judgmental of patients history. I've been on a certain medication for almost 5 years now and wanted to switch me to a different med, one I've never tried or even heard of before. When I told himmy current medication has been working great for me he says he's not comfortable writing it out because it's a controlled substance and I have a "history" of substance abuse. I explained I wasn't being treated for substance abuse for the medication I came to acquire. He said take it or leave it. So I left and found a psych the very next day who looked over my history and wrote me out a prescription no problem and no judgment.

Although the wait was long, the time with Dr. El-Shafei was worth it. He did not rush the visit and genuinely expressed interest in what I shared.

What I liked: Dr. Ashraf was very kind and charismatic. It felt like he was really listening to me and he diagnosed what was going on with me! While I could have been given prescriptions for two medications and start themat the same time, the doctor advised to start with just one and to see how things work first, which I appreciate. He also answered all my questions and apprehensions about the medication. What could improve: - The wait was 1 hour and 40 minutes, however, which seems to be faster than the other reviews here, but still a long wait. My appointment was for 7:30 pm and I saw the doctor around 9:10. The visit itself was about 10-15 minutes, so the wait is too long for the actual visit. I wish the visit was a bit longer, but I think my diagnosis was pretty clear cut, so there was no need to extend it. - It also felt like Dr. Ashraf was quick to recommend medication. - The front desk, while polite (if you treat them with respect and politeness, they will do the same), was a bit slow to do things. For example, I needed a letter of diagnosis from the doctor, but this took about 20 minutes for them to print and give to me. Their slowness is understandable because there are too many patients booked, so there’s not enough staff to deal with the volume of patients. - DEFINITELY overbooked. There’s so many people trying to see Dr. Ashraf, which translates to long waiting times and a (understandably) slow front desk. Some patients might go over the allotted time for their appointment (30 minutes, I think) because it seems like the doctor totally hears them out and tries to best to help them if they need the time. While this is really great for the patient, it exacerbates the waiting times even more. Having worked in a clinic before with similar overbooking issues, I’m not sure who is allowing this to happen, but I wouldn’t blame the front desk. They are most likely following management orders to book as many people as possible to maximize revenue. Overall: If you can get over the long wait times, I feel it is definitely worth a shot with Dr. Ashraf, who has great bedside manner and wants to hear you out. If I have the time, I will definitely go back.

I was warmly greeted by the front staff upon my arrival. I was an hour early so I waited a bit but they did their best to accommodate me. The physician came up with a game plan for me right awayand he was very thorough when explaining things to me. I’ve personally had a great experience. Don’t let the other reviews sway you.

He works with me. Very caring. Although he’s out of my network I still come back to him because he works with me and doesn’t pressure me as I’ve had by past psychiatrists in the past. I don’t know what moreto say. I just am very appreciative and lucky to have him as a psychiatrist. The only upside if the amount of patients he has which is a very long wait. The Doctor and his staff are Muslim so when their Ramadan (I think that’s how you spell it) ??????? goes into effect for them the wait is longer because that’s when they are able to feast. The wait to be seen is longer. I love that his office hours are after 5pm so all in all is ok, for me it works.

Doctor will take new patients ASAP..if you are a return patient OR you are not a friend of doctor then expect to wait 5+ hours. For a 5 minute session with doctor you have to wait 5 hours...just wow.

The front desk and the doctor were great, no complaints. The wait, however, was over two hours from the scheduled appointment time. Sure, a comfy armchair is nice while you wait, but when there's a room full of 20 people noteveryone gets a chair. The wait was so long that I counted 4 people sleeping. I do recommend, but only if you have the time (and sleeping bag).

Dr. Ashraf is kind, considerate, and very knowledgeable. He gives you all the facts in a calm, patient, and comfortable manner. He also offers noteworthy advice about how to manage medications. Furthermore, his office is extremely charming.My only small issue was with the extended wait time to be seen. But that’s only because he cares about his patients and doesn’t rush you. Overall my experience was very good—efficient and effective.
