What People Say About Dr. Alka Hudson, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful
Reply
Overall, I have been shocked by the lack of professionalism, poor interpersonal skills and substandard medical care offered at this practice. Specifically, I take detailed notes during each visit. The team also provides clinic notes recapping each visit via an app. However, Dr. Hudson, and her team often omit or forget important care details in these patient recaps. Plus, they often don’t reference the detailed patient history during appointments. As a result, the quality of care is unacceptable. Moreover, Dr. Hudson’s demeanor and subsequent staff behavior is rude, condescending and anti-patient dialogue or accepting of feedback. If you want a true partner in care and patient advocate, please seek another more skilled professional and office team. Something is very wrong with the culture and patient care at this practice.

Dr. Hudson does not seem to have much empathy for patients. She is knowledgeable but I do not feel that she really cares.
