Rude, dismissive and unhelpful I wouldn't recommend him to anyone. He acts like it is painful for him to answer questions. In this day and age a doctor who won't talk to patients has no place in healthcare

The experience you describe here seems to be atypical feedback. Dr. Achari strives to provide the best care possible for his patients, includes answering questions during their visits & addressing additional concerns when they arise. We're sorry there seems to have been a miscommunication; I assure you it was not his intention to dismiss your concerns /questions. Dr. reached out to all specialists involved in your father's care & utilized previous & addit'l tests to mutually define a care plan.

After dismissing my dad as a patient and cancelling an appt it took a month to get, Dr Achari said he would do an INR After cancelling his INR appt.
