Review for Dr. Ailawadi

I had lumbar injections by him. He used off label drugs which I specifically asked him not to. He admitted to it. I said I’d sue him. I got my medical records and that was omitted from my file. He’s sneaky and for profit with northeast rehab. He made my condition worse. Don’t go to him.

Review for Dr. Teleo

Dismissive in her approach is an understatement. Just want to warn any to stay away from this "Dr." She spent less that 10 minutes with me and didn't really care to hear anything I had to say. I will never recommend her or return to this office!

She never answers her phone!! Its impossible to get an appointment and she refuses to see you if you walk in without an appointment. When i finally did get to see her she discontinued a treatment that was actually helping. I would NOT recommend her as your PCP.
