    Amazing experiences with the Mission Bay OB Team!

    She was friendly but was VERY rushed. She seemed like she was trying to get out of there as quickly as possible and not fully engaging with my questions. She left 10 min before my appointment was scheduled to end. I had to ask a nurse/assistant to bring her back because she hadn't answered all my questions yet.

    I felt that the appointment was very rushed and my questions about disability and the discomfort I had were brushed off. The note written by provider didn't mention any of that but that I felt good.

    De Farooqi is amazing she is the best and provides the utmost care because she indeed cares herself about me

    Dr. Farooqi was pleasant and informative however we determined the appointment was unnecessary because the device does not need to be removed for another two years. Dr. Farooqi tried to rectify the situation by "cancelling" the appointment and refunding my co-pay. She spoke to the front desk and let me know they would be able to further assist me.

    I feel I pushed to get the Nuba ring no one tells me how to improve the adenomyosis or the endometriosis.

    This was my first pre natal appointment with my provider and she revealed the baby's gender to me. This is not fair and expected from a facility like UCSF. I got to ask the patient in this case me if I even want to know! The dr while doing to ultra sound said "it looks like a boy if I had to put my bet on but yeah it's too early to say". I am so disappointment with UCSF.
