What People Say About Dr. Ajay Sood, MD

Unprofessional. Difficult to reach. He prefers communication via text message or email. Does NOT return calls, texts or emails quickly. As of this post, I have been waiting 8 days for a refill prescription and 3 business days for a response to call, texts and emails about this delay. DO NOT RECOMMEND.

We have seen many doctors trying to help us with a child with ADHD. Dr. Sood has been very helpful and was very direct with what we need to do to help our child prepare for life, and how to deal with today.

Absolutely the most unprofessional interaction I've ever had with a medical professional. Does not give the appearance of being concerned for his patients and a terrible communicator. Asked him to be removed from my child's case. NOT recommended or suggested in any way
