    My brother and I waited three hours in the office before we spoke with this doctor. We consider this to be very unprofessional and poor patient care. The staff and physician should have kept us informed as to why such a delay or, offer to reschedule. The type of patients that put their trust in this doctor are very sick, weak and weary. They should not have to wait three hours to see a physician. I am very disappointed with the lack of communication and consideration demonstrated today.

    Dr. Barai was seeing my mother for cancer about 2 months ago when she first was diagnosed . He Prescribed her medication, sent her to a surgeon, and saw her for follow ups appointments. Then days before when is was time for my mother to have her mastectomy. Dr. Barai's office called her and canceled all her appointments. Telling my mother that her insurance won't cover it. When doesn't Medicaid not cover breast cancer?? We called medicaid , and it was a LIE. Dr. Barai saw my mother for about
