Dr. Lalani and his associates show remarkable professionalism and are incredible in their field. They listen to patient concerns and are thorough and Pro active in treating individual Endocrine ailments. The very best practice I've received care from. Exceptionally staffed.
in Phoenix, AZ |
Although the Dr seems knowledgeable, his office is so disorganized I would not recommend going to him. They couldn't seem to fax a simple referral to another Dr in a timely manner and they won't return phone calls. When we came to personally pick up the referral they had not faxed, the office manager would not come out to speak with us, but instructed her other staff to inform us that we would not be seen by anyone no matter how long we waited.

The worst medical experience you will ever have - guaranteed. Went in with one issue and was subjected to 35 unnecessary tests and billed accordingly and then suggested I should come back for more testing.
in Scottsdale, AZ |
Dr. Lalani is probably the most knowledgable and sincere Doctor you will ever meet. However, his staff, especially the front office and office manager are horrible. The office is so chaotic. Wait times exceed 1 - 2 hours.The front office staff is always arguing with each other and the rest of the staff looks miserable. I no longer go to this practice because it is a nightmare every time. When the office staff changes I will be back. Dr. Lalani is great but the staff is horrible.
Phoenix, AZ |
Dr. Lalani and his Nurse Practitioners are great. The medical assistants in the back office are great too. It's the rest of the staff that are a little unprofessional. I overheard staff arguing at the front desk both times I visited the office. Make sure you know exactly where your lab work is going and if that facility/lab takes your insurance. They did get me in for my initial appointment immediately, but I waited 3 hours after my scheduled time to see the doctor.
Glendale, AZ |
Dr. Lalani wasn't bad, the office is horrible. No one answers the phone, trying to schedule an appointment is almost impossible. If you need something you have to go into the office and make them hand it to you or it won't get done. Office personal doesn't do their job. You may get extra bills for stuff your insurance don't cover because no one checks your benefits. Your prescriptions may not get refills, because you can't make an appointment. Very Unprofessional, poorly run.
in Queen Creek, AZ |
I was happy to finally see a doctor that was able to help me. Staff was friendly and Doctor Lalani was the best.
in Glendale, AZ |
I had a great experience with Dr. Lalani. He was patient, understanding, and extremely knowledgeable with my condition (diabetes). Bedside manner was impeccable.
Phoenix, AZ |
Some staff is wonderful, others distant & not helpful. Some medical assistants, while very nice, make a lot of errors when writing down what you are taking or seen for. Every time I've gone they've had my medications incorrect. I bring in my meds so they can write them down but they still have constant errors. I find it odd that they seem to diagnose everyone with Hashimotos. It's impossible to get a call back, even after placing many calls, I'm at 3 now with msgs left, nothing & it's urgent.
Scottsdale, AZ |
The Dr is a good dr. But i feel that the office is run is the most unprofessional way. There never return phone calls for concerns of a patient. I have spent more than 2-3 hours at some appointments just waiting to see him It is always under staffed. It is really too bad.. I would not recommend this dr. to anyone else.
in Chandler, AZ |
I would not recommend this facility. The wait times are insane. The staff is so rude. I saw this Dr one time for a 2000.00 procedure in his office. Never ever will I go here again. if you have the choice RUNNNN to another place. Rebecca Curry
in Mesa |
Best care I have ever had.
Phoenix, AZ |
4 months after being seen and they still haven't sent in my prescription for my medications. I don't think the staff talk to each other. I have called MANY times. Awful experience. I went there for help. Not happy at all.
in Scottsdale, AZ |
Let's just say it was bad and now it is worse. I'll never go back again. My health is far worse now and was told to just come back in a year
