Good Doctor, monitor their billing practices. Wanted to pay out of pocket costs at each visit but was always told should wait to pay after insurance had paid and would receive a statement from them. After making each inquiry about my bill was always given same explanation.Year later received call from Collector..This is bad business..WILL NOT GO BACK!!!!!!! Whoever does their billing DOES NOT KNOW WHAT SHE IS DOING!!!BEWARE!!!

I have been as a patient myself as well as accompanying family members for their care. Also, I have worked on medical staff and in the community alongside Dr Acharya for 24 years. Dr Acharya is very diligent, intelligent and skilled, yet is also compassionate and a good communicator. Cautious and thorough, he finds that balance without over-reacting/testing or being dismissive/under-testing.
