Great doctor but long waiting time

He is a very kind and generous person. He listens to your problem and explains after hearing you. He gives bare minimum tests and you are free to do it from any location! Usually, they refer you somewhere to have a commission, which is kind of industry trend. My mother is his patient too for last year or so. He will accommodate you if this is urgent, which is the best part. The minus side of this is that you have a long waiting time. So, if you are anal about waiting, this is not your place. Staff is ok but don't expect vip service, as they are busy.

The doctor himself is a very profession person. No complaints about him. But if you decide to visit him then be prepared for the worst kind of office staff you could possibly imagine. The front desk lady even told me that I should change my doctor and and hung up the phone. NO ONE in the office ever apologized for their unprofessional conduct. We have had many instances where they were literally caught lying to our faces.
