Had a follow-up appointment for 1:30, arrived at 1:15. There were two people in front of me. Sat for 30 minutes before one of them was taken. At 2:00, other people started entering the office. At 2:10 the second person was taken. By the way this was June,, no air-conditioning, the temperature was 95 degrees in the office. The only fan was an 8 inch fan that was focused on the receptionist, so the heat did not bother her at all. Being a pulmonary specialist - I would think there might be some concern about breathing problems----- At 2:30 I finally went to the receptionist to inquire (complain). Asking when I would be seen - her reply was that there were 2 people in front of me and it would be over an hour before I would be seen. Funny I though I was next as people came in after me and after 2:00. I WALKED OUT. Have spent two days trying to reschedule --- one phone number has been been disconnected and the other gets a message that the person is not available.

My father practiced medicine quite successfully in New York City for 50 years so I like to think that I know how medicine should be practiced and how doctors should conduct themselves. This is THE worst doctor and doctor's office I've ever been in! Granted we were a bit late but we waited an hour and a half. The office staff is completely inept and unempowered. When we walked in they barely acknowledged us and were dealing with some disaster with their phone company. One receptionist was wearing a weathered superman tee shirt. This should have been an alarm right away. Staff not being held accountable. When we finally got in to see the doctor he was interrupted by his staff several times and for 10 minute clips. I finally told him about my father and that the doctor patient relationship is sacred and not to accept anymore interruptions. He told me that was the way it was and if we didn't like it I could go somewhere else. Guess what? We walked out right then and there. On the way out I gave myself a prize and said to him "I don't know how you function this way!" Another thing that gave us the creeps was a huge tube of KY Jelly left out next to the examining table. Is this guy a pulmonary specialist or what! I didn't want him to touch my wife at all after that! He also said that just by looking at me he could tell I also had sleep apnea but that we'd deal with that later. Completely unethical behavior all around. We called our insurance to make sure this idiot doesn't get paid. If you are even thinking about going to this guy run screaming! He's a real piece of work.

I was so disappointed with this doctor. The office was so dirty and the staff very unprofessional. The doctor had me inhale three sprivia's and he could not give me a good reason for this. My pharmasist told me that I should not do that again. I trust her more than I do him. I also had his sleep study, the place was filthy and I still cannot get the results. Don't go to him see someone professionally.I told my gp that he should not recommend him again.

Dr Ogirala really cares about his patients, he expends enough time to expalin and answer questions. He is not the regular MD who only cares about money, he only cares about his patients.
