Dr. Ghanshyam has been both of my parents doctor for a while now. His wife answers his phone calls and she is sooooo beyond rude, and disrespectful. my mom calls in and asked her a question and she gave me a rude answer and handed the phone to someone else and we could hear her saying tell them no. So my mom asked this new lady and she said no as told and was also rude and hands the phone back to his wife. My mom then asked for another time for an appointment and she said this is the only time you want it or not. Really rudely. Then I took the phone and said we are going to switch doctors if you are going to be so rude. She said OK then Bye and hung up on us. So guess you lost customers now but she doesn't care obviously.
Dr Patel and his staff were very kind and considerate. They were very informative and took the time to answer my questions. The exam was explained and procedures gone over for my benefit. I would strongly recommend them to others.
