I generally do not review doctors. But Dr Athalye is hands down one of the best doctors I have met in a while now. I was seeing another doc at a clinic in north Scottsdale and was unhappy with the care I was receiving. My GI doc recommended Dr Athalye. World of difference. Right off the bat, labs were done and I was contacted immediately with the results. Apparently, I've been taking wrong dosages on a few meds! I was taking higher than needed. A bunch of stuff was corrected. My health is much much better. Also, Dr Athalye sees you in the hospital too. My wife was admitted and he was her hospital doctor. Not some random doc assigned by the hospital. Turns out, he sees his patients in the hospital if they get admitted. Whoch makes all the difference since he knows you and your health history. He took care of my wife till her discharge. Honestly, we knew we were in great hands with him and that was the first worry free hospital stay my wife has had. All I'm saying here is, this is one awesome doctor. No question. You can rest easy in his care. He knows his stuff, smart as a whip and most importantly is kind hearted and patient. 10 stars here.
Dr Athalye is a very busy doc which at first concerned me. But took him 2 minutes to diagnose my sickness which 3 other doctors were unable to. These other doctors completely missed what I have and told me that I just have to live with my symptoms. Dr Athley not only figured it out quickly, he made me do the correct tests and now I am doing much better. My health is much much improved. I had lost all faith in medical professionals but now i do believe that there still are some great doctors out there. If you need a really smart Doctor, see Dr Athalye. Brilliant guy. But not arrogant in the least. You may need to be persistent for an appointment with his receptionists because it's a bit hard to get in.
We recently started seeing Dr Athalye for our medical care and we are thrilled to have finally found a great doctor. It's hard to find a really good, trustworthy primary physician these days. Dr Athalye is kind, patient and really knows his stuff. He will tell you like it is and walk with you through everything. He is amazing with children and our kids adore him. If anyone is looking for a top notch doctor, see Dr Athalye. You will be in amazing hands. I generally do not like to write reviews but we really love this doctor.
I had been having severe abdominal pains for a couple months and had been to various doctors and admitted to the hospital a couple times where I saw the hospital issued doctors. On the advice of my gynecologist, I established with Dr Athalye. He pretty much decided to start from scratch and with a few tests, he was able to pinpoint my diagnosis ( a rare form of Crohn's disease). Now I'm on a treatment plan that's working and I'm also seeing a specialist - the correct specialist - all thanks to Dr Athalye. I finally have some semblance of my life back! This is hands down one awesome doctor. And yes, my entire family and extended family will be going to him for their medical needs.
Dr Athalye was recommended very highly by my orthopedic surgeon. So, I went ahead and established my medical care with him and I have to say, my surgeon was right. Dr Athalye is a downright brilliant doctor. I am 68 years old and have a bit of a complicated medical history. I have seen my share of many internists and Dr Athalye was the first doctor who actually came up with a productive diagnostic plan and solutions. If anyone needs a internist, and is able to get an appointment with Dr Athalye, let me tell you that you will be in excellent and safe hands.
This is one very caring and compassionate doctor. Bonus is that he is an extremely smart doctor. He took his time listening to my problem and did not over prescribe which has been my experience with other docs. If anyone is looking for a family doctor, see Dr Athalye. He is a busy doctor but I don't think my family and I can trust anyone else. As long as he is practicing, (which I hope is a long long time) we will be his patients.
Highly HIGHLY recommend Dr Athalye. He is compassionate, patient and knows what he is doing. Glad to have found him.
Dr.Athalye is an excellent doctor. He listened to me very patiently and explained everything in detail. He made sure that I understood everything. I highly recommend Dr Athalye.
Dr. Athalye is one great doctor. Kind, patient and extremely smart. No beating around the bush here. He will outline all your options/scenarios and walk you through everything. He will not prescribe you unnecessary meds. I recommend him very highly.
I generally don't write reviews but I will this time. My family and I are so grateful to have found Dr Athalye. I have a special needs teenager and he was so caring and patient with him. We were waiting on a specific lab result for my son and we were very anxious about the results. Dr Athalye called us at home after hours to tell us the results. He is one of the most compassionate people I know. And an extremely intelligent doctor. We had gone through 4 other doctors before we were referred to Dr Athalye by a family friend. If anyone needs a doctor who knows medicine, this is it.
Dr. Athalye is an amazing doctor. Takes his time and is very compassionate. Plus, the fact that he follows his patients in the hospital is a huge bonus. It's slightly harder to get an appointment with him now than before - probably because he's becoming well known for being such an excellent doctor. My parents were his patients, followed by my wife and I and now I can't have anyone else see my kids but Dr Athalye. If anyone needs an internist, I very highly recommend Dr. Athalye.
After seeing multiple doctors, I am extremely happy to have found Dr Athalye. He is patient, understanding and very caring. He is a busy doctor but that's with good reason. It is hard to find doctors who know what they are doing and actually care. I have been to many a doctors who have had time for lengthy appointments but none them were able to accurately diagnose my illness. They were prescription fillers. I needed a doctor. Dr Athalye just did not give me medicines and send me on my way. He was more interested in diagnosing my illness and treating it. He wanted to plan my recovery. Now that's a real doctor. I would very highly recommend Dr Athalye. And today, because of him, I am able to enjoy a quality life with my husband and kids.
Excelent Doctor, Extremly rude and uncaring personal nurse and staff!
At my recent appointment with Dr. Athalye, I was impressed with his caring manner. He took the time to really listen to my symptoms. I would definitely see him again.
Patient Mill plan and simple. I had three appointments with the guy and he maybe spent a total of 5 minutes with me. If you need anything fixed or changed, don't expect for him to do it out of the "kindness of his heart,"- be ready to break out your wallet (even if he writes the wrong dosage on a prescription!).
My family has been seeing Dr Athalye for the past year and we are so grateful to have found him. He is compassionate, honest and an excellent doctor. He ALWAYS takes his time with us and treats my family like we are HIS family. When my father was diagnosed with lung cancer, Dr. Athalye was on vacation, and he still called us directly and spoke to us about the diagnosis and options. While he was in vacation!! Now that's who I call a real doctor. They don't come like this anymore. Thank you Dr Athalye.
I had a rare illness and had been to several doctors around the world. Seen specialists of all kinds. No one was able to diagnose what my condition was. Then I finally met Dr Athalye. This was a boon from the Gods. He was able to diagnose my condition instantly. I got treatment done which required medication for just a few weeks. I would highly highly reommend Dr Athalye. He is worth the wait......You want a knowledgeable doctor who can diagnose your problem then this it.
Dr Athalye only schedules 10 minutes for each patient, exactly 10 minutes. If you are late you are out of luck. No other doctors in the same office will see you even if you cannot get an appointment with Dr Athalye -- a policy I never encountered while visiting other doctors' office. The office manager is extremely rude and threatened me by citing the law which she interpreted incorrectly. Although I have been a patient for years... I am changing doctor.
He couldn't even make out if there is thrush in my mouth or not.?
Dr. Athayle has been my Dr. for some years now. He is always attentive, caring and professional. Whenever, I do have questions he is always ready to answer them and doesn't rush me if I'm still not understanding. He takes the time to make sure that I'm comfortable in my understanding of my health. I had a 3 day stay in the hospital awhile back and he was there each day checking on me and working with the other specialists as a team. I would recommend Dr. Athayle to anyone looking for a really good family Doctor.
I have a feeling this practice is one where the MD's are alloted about 10 minutes per patient. Dr Athalye spent all of 5-6 minutes with me, then recommended a diagnostic test that he would have known would be harmful to my health if he had only listened. Everyone can have a bad day so I'm not saying this visit was typical. Be advised Scottsdale Family Health is a high volume practice, and if you don't mind being treated like a number, it may be okay for you.
They employee young ignorant boys for their scheduling staff that dont listen or pay attention to what patients are asking for. I requested a physical exam appointment when I got there, the 2 front office ladies, did not smile did not recipricate when I said good morning, very rude and bossy. I got there 25 mints earlier than my appointments once the nurse took me in the office after checking my vitals she said so you are here for and orientation I replied by letting her know that I was there for an physical exam she told me to let the Doctor know when he comes in, waited in the office exactly 35 mints and when he came in he mentioned the same thing as the nurse that I was there for a orientation & I replied by telling him no I WAS there for a Physical, Dr. Athayle replied by saying that the front office had only scheduled him for a 10 minute visit with me and I would have to make another appointment for any other concerns I may have or I could take it up with the office manager.I asked to speak with the office manager they told me that he was not in, I called later that day left a message for the office manager Mr. Quin, he has not replied at all.So now my insurance has been charge, I have paid my $25.00 co pay and none of my concerns have been attended to still in pain and have to find a new doctor make appointment and hope this nonsense does not happen again.Doctors these days DO NOT care about patients!! Its all about money and they are SO scared of insurance companies!!
I am an Intensive Care RN with 30 years of experience and I found Dr. Athalye to be an excellent Family Practitioner. He was very attentive and spent a good amount of time with me. He gave me quality care with with an excellent outcome and he checked to make sure that I was progressing well after the visit.
Was easy to talk to and understanding with the fact that I was about to lose my health insurance and wrote my scrip for a few extra refills. I will happily see him for future appointments.
Dr.Athalye,pronounced Ottley,runs his office like a walk-in clinic,booking every 15 minutes and rushing through appointments. In a year and a half he never did a complete physical or mentioned a follow up. He is very brusque. For example, when he diagnosed a very painful illness, he said, "you have --, it's a progressive and incurable, take Nsaids, and ran off to see his next patient. He never even bothered to recommend a specialist. I was shocked at his insensitivity. If this is the kind of care you want, by all means see him.
He is a very good doctor ! He truly cares about his patients. I feel like he looks after my medical needs very well and he follows up. I highly recomend him !
Dr. Athalye comes highly recommended within the physician community. Being a physician myself, I find Dr. Athalye to be an astute and compassionate physician. He is the primary care provider to several of my colleagues and their families. We are very fortunate to have a physician of such high calibre in our midst.
Dr. Rahul is an excellent physician. He diagnoses the problem very quickly and prescribes reasonable medication to cure quickly.
Really listens and stays with you till you feel your questions have been answered. His nurse staff and reception are very kind.
As a just retired physician, I research my choices through other medical professionals to find that doctor who treats many of my colleagues. He is a friendly, pleasant and warm individual who enjoys his practice and has a good grasp of his material. Generous with samples and detailed advise, he would not hesitate to refer to other specialists with whom he would work as a team. Convenient location to Scottsdale Health Care Center - Osborn, his office is comfortable and well appointed. He has helped my through some serious health problems like a lighthouse on a stormy shore. I do not hesitate him to recommend him to be your family physician.
