One Star

Arrived for my first appointment and this doctors staff had not done the work to get my records from previous physicians even though I personally came in to hand the intake paperwork and release forms to his secretary two weeks before my appointment. When I arrived they tried to send me away and indicated I would have to take another day off of work to see the doctor. They said they couldn't get my records from the other doctors office, but I was able to call and get it faxed over within five minutes. Once I was done with the doctor they had me go to an outside lab to get a test done. I went the next week and they got the results that day. Gave them three days to reach out to me before I called and tried to get there results. The physician assistant attempted to reach me once, did not leave a message, did not come to the phone or return a phone call the following four business days I tried to get in contact with him or the doctor. I have now been on hold for 45 minutes as I have refused to get off the line until I speak to the doctor. The level of care and consideration from this doctor is abhorrent.

One of the best doctors I have been to

Dr. Alukal is one of the best doctors I have been to. He is caring and very knowledgable. I never feel rushed during an appointment and when my wife brings a hand written list of questions, he patiently let's her go through them and he answers each one of them, never making us feel uncomfortable. He truly puts us at ease and we wholeheartedly trust him. Truly one of the best! I am so thankful I found him.
