Dr. Jayshri R Chasmawala has the following 1 specialty
- Family Medicine
A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.

Under the impression that the Dr. was with another patient, I patiently waited in the waiting room. Then she walked in 20 minutes after my appointment with a handful of jcrew and banana republic bags. Talk about an unprofessional first impression.Unfortunately, this first impression set the tone for numerous other unprofessional situations. If I can give any advice, don't waste your time with this office. I have been trying to refill a simple prescription for 3 weeks now. They do not answer the phone, and out of maybe 30 phone calls, one was returned and was very uninformative. I advise you to go elsewhere.
If you don't mind spending half a day in a poorly air conditioned office and listening to a lecture about the evils of meat and why you should be vegan, Dr Chasmawala might be a good fit. Also, before making the appointment, I called to ensure she would be able to help me understand my alternative care options, specifically acupuncture, but it turns out she didn't know anything about it once I got in a room with her. Disappointed, and will continue my search for a good PCP.
We just received a call from a collections agency regarding a balance at this clinic. We had moved a couple of months after a visit to this clinic and the bills they sent never made it to us. I called the clinic and asked why no one called the phone number on the account to confirm address when they were continuously returned and was told that "we don't call patients, we send unpaid bills to collections." I asked one more time why if we had not corresponded in reply to the bills they repeatedly sent to an old address why they would not try to call one time before sending them to collections and the response was "we don't have to call our patients."Dr. Jayshri herself is nice, however somewhat unethical that she will not see a patient for more than one complaint at one visit (i.e.-I was sick and also needed a follow up for management of my anxiety which she was seeing me for) and requests multiple follow-ups to drag out one visit into 4; but her office management staff is incredibly inefficient and unconcerned with their patients' care and satisfaction. Her office staff is enough to deter me from remaining a patient there as well as ward future patients off from her practice. Not recommended in the least.Poor management.
I've only been in once. Setting the appointment was easy, but getting what I needed was not. When making the appointment, I told them I needed blood work done. When I arrived I waited 45 min. to see the doctor, mostly because she and her staff were involved in a shouting match with another patient. By the time I got to see the doctor, I was told it was too late to send the blood work to the lab, so I would have to go to the lab myself. Now I am trying to get my prescriptions refilled, and I actually had to stop by the office in order to speak to someone, since no one EVER answers the phone. And when I stopped in, Bianca was so rude and uncaring that I almost got into a shouting match with her myself. Luckily, I stopped myself and had to laugh at how ridiculous the service is. And when I told Bianca that I would be looking for another doctor, she couldn't have cared less. Not sure why someone who obviously doesn't care about patients is in the health care business, but I won't be going back. The doctor herself seems okay, but I only saw her once, so I don't really know how capable she is as a doctor. However, I can say with confidence that she does not know how to set up an office or how to hire quality assistants.
Dr. Chasmawata was nice, but her office staff were unfriendly and unhelpful. I found the office dirty, especially the examining room, which was a problem because I have a toddler. I don't know if her diagnosis was accurate, but I found better advice than what she gave me by doing a basic internet search and by talking to relatives.
