Excellent bedside manner, experience and medical knowledge. I think Dr. Hundal is the Endocrinologist for me. He has quite an established practice and sees new patients on Saturday. I love that idea. I have an extensive medical history and Dr. Hundal read my entire file and asked me questions about everything. He is also treating my severe osteoporosis in both hips.

GREATEST ENDOCRINOLOGIST IN THE WORLD......... BELIEVE ME I BEEN TO THE REST AND NOW I'M WITH THE BEST.

Frustrated

Have been a patent for two years now and can never see doctor. It is always PA. Have serious issues with blood levels dropping and keep getting the run around with office staff; no appointments until November. Seem not to care. I have had to continue to emergency room with the same issue. My primary is waiting on assistance from endocrinologist to help us figure out what is going on...

Horrible. He might be okay if you're diabetic, but aside from the norm, forget about it. I went to him with parathyroid problems--high calcium, history of a kidney stone, bone pain, fatigue, low vitamin D. All the key indicators of hyperparathyroidism. Over the period of a year he kept running blood tests, urine tests, a bone scan, all of which continued to confirm this diagnosis. Yet, he refused to refer me to a surgeon to have the parathyroid tumor removed (the only way to treat the disease!). His suggestion--"keep hydrated." Seriously???! I continued to suffer. I finally gave up and sought another expert in the field and had the benign tumor removed. 4 months later my calcium levels are perfect and I'm back to my old self. The guy is a joke.

:) Amazing

Dr.Hundal is a great doctor, my first visit wasn't that much wait his staff was very nice. Sometimes I see his family, but usually when I can I get a voicemail, but not all the time. Doctors are busy and I didn't mind the voicemail so I just email or even go tithe office if I have a problem.

Worst office staff ever

Hundal's a nice enough guy and an okay doctor. BUT his staff are nincompoops. I went to check out once and the lady told me, "oh, there's no co-pay; you have Medicare." But I don't. Okay, no big deal, right? Except on two occasions I left phone messages and never got a response. The first message I left because my A1C score was so low that I was afraid they'd pulled the wrong chart. Thud. No reply. The second unanswered message was more serious. I'd called to say that my insurance company was no longer going to support one of my meds, and I needed to know how we were going to deal with it. I waited two weeks to hear back, but again, no response. So I called and told the office manager the problem, and she said she couldn't comment because her "computer was down." I told her that she didn't need a computer to know that the situation was unacceptable. So she put me on hold and the next voice I heard was Dr. Hundal's. "We get lots of messages and I suppose one could get lost ." I reminded him that not one, but two of my messages went to Mars, and his office was a black hole where information disappears. "How would you like me to proceed?" he asked. I told him to make a copy of my chart for me to pick up, because I was firing him. Every word is true. Beware.
