After 30 yrs and many many medications I have finally found a Dr that has gotten me on the right path. His office is amazing from the front desk to the Nurse Practitioners even Dr Hashmi himself. I'm truly grateful for the progress I have made. NP Chinedu and NP Siddiqui are awesome, friendly and make you feel very comfortable.
