it didn't take long for me to sign in and to be called in. Dr. Talukdar gave me the tools to help my health. I waited an hour and a half before he came in to see me after the scheduled time'\.

Good doctor but I can't recommend him. Both visits to him were over 3.5 hours long and the staff just took it as the price you pay for seeing him. Visit with doctor was 10 minutes the rest was waiting time.

If I didn’t have to click on that 1star to leave a review I wouldn’t click on any stars! Dr. Ramirez and her staff need a lesson on bedside manners. They’re VERY unprofessional! No call backs on tests results, no return calls and no compassion.

My experience with post procedure discharge and care by Dr. Kella were beyond poor. I went in for what should have been an easy procedure to remove kidney stones. It turned into a 5 day stay in the hospital and pain from surgery almost a month out from the procedure.
