What People Say About Dr. Ahad Makarachi, MD

Dr Makarachi was one of the worst doctor's that I have ever seen. I went in to be seen after a number of years for some issues I have been having recently. Without bothering to do a test, take hormone tests, or anything I was told to go into his office. In the office I was told that their was nothing he was going to do, mind you this is the first time he saw me, and that I should just deal with my issues. He clearly also trains his nursing staff as they are just as rude as he is. Do no see this Doctor.

I saw this doctor twice in a row for prenatal care. His nurse did absolutely nothing in terms of reviewing my medical history. Medications and allergies were not reviewed and all she did was a quick weight and B/P check. Once the doctor came into the room, he reviewed nothing as well. He did not check a fundal measurement, which is supposed to be done at every visit, and discussed nothing with me. I went 8 weeks in my 2nd and 3rd trimesters without being measured at all. He needs to retire

Unbelievably poor care from this doctor. I went in for a possible UTI, and he didn't even bother testing my urine. Told me I had nothing to worry about. Ended up going to the ER same day, and it turned out being an infection. What a waste of time!

Dr Makarachi delivered my girls and removed a ruptured cyst on my ovary. I've been a patient of his for 20+ years. He is a great listener and very understanding. I highly recommend him!!
