I have been a patient here for 5 years. I saw Dr.V originally for the first year, he is great experienced and really cares about helping you. I lost my insurance and could not afford my meds and he got me into a drug trial that covered them for 6 months. I have been seeing Angela and Susan for the last few years and they are so amazing. The front desk Sarah is professional. I can walk in if I need to be seen immediately and she handles insurance issues like prior authorizations same day.

I have seen Dr. Vijapura for years. He has helped me (successfully) through many difficult times in my life. His staff always returns your calls and you don't have to navigate through prompts to get an associate on the phone. His psychotherapy team is excellent as well.

Be careful if you see this Dr. Office. The minute you disagree or dispute a charge on your account they will terminate your relationship after you pay the bogus charge that was their mistake and then drop you. They did this to me after 2.5 years . My spouse at the doctors recommendation kindly asked if they could not make her wait for hours after her appointment time because she has to get back to her job. Well the next week she received a letter in the mail they can no longer see her. warning!

This man is incompetent and condescending. He doesn't listen to patients or care. However, he'll prescribe pretty much whatever you ask for, so if that's all you care about then he'll work out for you.
