Sanaa is always very friendly and has a great, natural skill with my kids. She understands them, and does her utmost to set them at ease during the appointment.

Great provider; asked me questions and told me X's health progress in accordance with her height, weight, and head circumference. She asks if I had any questions and then the nurse/medical assistance gave her the vaccines and I was done with the appointment. I was out within 15 min since the beginning of the conversation with the provider. I could say my experience was efficiently fast.

We absolutely love Dr. Qamar and are so happy she is the physician for our daughter. My only concern is my inability to contact her via the office. There is no direct line to Yacktman Pediatrics, I have to call a general Advocate number and hope that I get transferred to the right place, if they even allow that. Sometimes they only take a message for our provider and then I never know if it was received.

Dr. Qamar was very thorough and talked to my son (16 years old) about a lot of good teen topics. Tried to get in to see Dr. X but have seen Dr. Qamar once before & she was great.

Dr. Qamar is wonderful. Although we've had issues with her nurses. Particularly nurse X. She was so slow while administering vaccines, which causes more pain and checked my 3 year old's height using the baby scale. Not good!

Dr.Qamar was very thorough like normal. She answered all of my questions in a kind and easy to explain manor that was not condescending. We did end up waiting in the exam room about 20-25 minutes after our scheduled appointment time, and we were on time for our appointment. Dr.Qamar is great with my son and never makes either of us feel uncomfortable or nervous.

Always appreciate that Dr. Sanaa takes the time to find out if I have any questions that she can answer & that she is in tune with my baby's moods & doesn't push him but is patient when he needs someone to be gentle with him.

This is the first time we saw Dr. Qamar since Dr. XX is not available. She was really accommodating and listened to my son's previous history and my concerns.

Reviewed on October 9, 2017 7:00 PM

Dr. Qumar is not my child's primary pediatrician. I originally saw her because I made an appointment for the first available doctor because my child had not made a bowl movemenet in a week. at the appointment Dr. Qumar was not concerned about it but she was concerned about her weight. Our primary pediatrician knows her history and weight gain and I don't think she would have been concerned with her weight. At our follow up appointment that she requested she thought my child needed to get a echo test. I had questions about her weight and the test that I felt were not fully answered. she kept referring me to a chart but could not answer my questions. My questions were not answered or explained throughly. I was very unhappy with our visit and will not be seeing this doctor again.
