While trying to schedule a new patient appointment with Dr. Vijapura's office I described my understanding of my insurance policy & (knowing my description was crap) said if you understand what I mean by that. The woman on the line instantly took offense, said I've worked here 14 years. You'll need to find another doctor, and hung up. I had no chance to explain myself. Called back to fix the misunderstanding and was completely stonewalled. I am completely dumbfounded!

This place is a complete joke! I so badly wish I had seen all these horrible reviews before I went there. I honestly believe something isn't right about this place! Is there something fishy going on with this place? I truly believe so! It needs to be investigated! Why do they only take cash?? I have never been to a doctor's office that only took cash. The front office staff treats their patients like children. I will be making a complaint with my insurance company! A 0 star review!!!!!!!!!!

Worst doctor Ive probably ever seen. He saw me for about 5 minutes at Tampa General in early November 2015 after I had intentionally wrecked my car trying to commit suicide. First thing he said to me, which 1. was completelly irrelevant and 2 was just downright in apropriate and made me start bawling was, Do you think trying to commit suicide and having depression is going to make boys want to date you?? Uhhh..?? Then he went on to bash and belittle my faith in God. Terrible doctor, and person

I have nothing but bad things to say about the office very rude never see the same dr. twice. never go there
|
To be honest, I wouldn't recommend this practice. The physician's assistant is the only one I'd see, simply because I feel he got me back on track with my care. Everything else considering, I wouldn't go to this practice. The front desk staff has no compassion & even when in an emergency situation show no compassion if you're needing to be seen ASAP. The cash only policy is a joke, god forbid you don't show up with enough cash, you better rush back out to get it nearby or get cancelled.

I have not seen him in the office in years. The other Drs are ok. but the GATEKEEPER is a rude B* Expect to wait 2-3 hours to be seen. Don't show up more then 15 minutes early or you may get kicked out. AND NEVER EVER GET THERE LATE because they will not see you and you will be charged a $35. no show fee and you better pray they can see you in a couple days. if not, expect to be rescheduled weeks out without your meds. This office manager is in the wrong line of work. She has no biz workng there

Can I give this office a rating of any less than one star? I was weary of the office based on all of the bad reviews that they have consistently received. Now, I can see why. The office staff is very rude from the woman sitting at the front desk to whom ever they have answering the phones. I had a very uneasy feeling from when I arrived to when I left. I will never go back.
