Terrible table side manner, does not respect patients time, his practice is just a money factory, he cares about your money and not your health. Avoid at all costs. Dr Agha's practice is mismanaged, the office is disgusting, and the staff are incompetent.

On my 4th visit I waited over an hour. Then got put in a room and sat for another 10 to15 minutes. Doc came in unprepared with my results then came back and spent less than 2 minutes with me. Then his assistant was supposed to set me up with a clap machine. They sat me down for another 25 minutes and then the assistant saw me and said no one told him I was waiting for him. He said he had to reschedule me. Blah blah blah. All the while not one person in the office apologized for jerking me aroun

Dr Agha is very knowledgable! He diagnosed me correctly after I was told nothing was wrong with me by another physician. He helped speed up my recovery and I am back to normal. I would definitely recommend him!
