    I waited over two hours to see "Doctor" Rajat Sood. I was upset with the wait, obviously, so I spoke softly, and with my eyes to the floor. When he demanded that I raise my eyes and show him 'respect,' I replied back, 'Respect? Who just blatantly overbooked their office & had me waste a half day of work?" With that, Sood kicked me out of his office. And honestly, I'd rather die from this bleeding stomach than see him again. Do not let this terrible human being practice medicine.

    He doesn't explain anything, won't answer questions. You're lucky if he spends 2 minutes with you. Makes you feel like you are wasting his time. Was short with me because not all my lab results were in. I have no control over that. His office forgot to send over referral for tests. Am looking for another Dr.

    Very rude and bad bedside manners. His office manager is even worse. He doesn't listen to anything. Waste of time. Find your self another doctor.
