Specialties

Dr. Gargi H Upadhyaya has the following 1 specialty

  • Medical Oncology

    Think of an oncologist as your main physician for cancer care. After being diagnosed, you’ll meet regularly with an oncologist to explore and manage your treatment options, as well as monitor your condition throughout the process. Medical oncologists are extremely knowledgeable in various types of cancer treatment and can recommend the right method for the type and stage of cancer you’re facing.
    They may also refer you to additional specialists throughout your care, but they will always be your home base for questions and support. It’s also worth mentioning that medical oncologists deal mostly with solid tumors while hematologists specialize in cancers that involve blood disorders, such as leukemia.

The problem is not with this doctor it's her staff. Worst medical office staff I have ever dealt with. Takes days at a time to get a call back and even then it's the patient calling. Appointment system is horrible. Staff is rude. No compassion. Dr. Gargi is good but the staff at these medical offices are incompetent and rude. They need to be reported or fired. Takes 3 days to respond to a message? No. Unprofessional and unacceptable.

Poor performance of office staff

While Dr.Gargi did an outstanding job in analyzing and treating my prostate cancer, her office staff left a lot to be desired. Appointments are poorly scheduled so that there is always a long wait time. But worst of all, I have to rely on picking up my Vicodin prescriptions in betweem office visits and these are very poorly managed by her office staff. This has been the case for the last couple of years: I leave a message that I need a prescription refill, I am told that the staff will leave her a message, I call back to see if it is ready for pickup and find that is not ready. Typically I succeed after several days, frequently having to visit her West Covina office,an extra 30 minute drive!
