Kahului, HI |
NEVER returning to this office again!!!!! Long story short, I was billed $101 because they lost my urine sample. Over a few weeks I kept in contact with one of the staff members, Jessica, who was very helpful. However, my bill was about to be due; so I went to the office to talk to a staff member (I didn't catch her name, she looked young and Latina?) but she was VERY rude, failed to help at all, and was nothing but sassy. & from what I've heard, Im not the first to be falsely billed here.
Made an appointment as a new patient I was not told that she is not a birthing OB, instead told at my app (wasting time & money). At the app. she was rude, judgmental and emotionless. She conducted a SMEAR test and without letting me know what was happening, suddenly was performing a vaginal ultra-sound! Completely unprofessional! She coded my ultrasound incorrectly, it should have been 100% taken care of by insurance, but instead I got charged. Bills aren't itemized - who knows what I paid for!

I had a great experience with Dr Lakhani and her office. She made a scary surgery so much easier and I knew I was in excellent hands the entire time. I recommend her highly.

I read reviews about Dr Lakhani after I had been referred to her for post menopausal bleeding. They were not overwhelmingly positive but I went anyway and I'm glad I did. I found her to be willing to answer all my questions. They assisted in getting me referred to a specialist very quickly when uterine cancer was confirmed. I can't say enough about the attractive physical environment and the helpfulness of the staff. Dr Lakhani will be my regular gynecologist from now on.

I would NOT recommend Dr.Lakhani (not even to my worst enemy). She came into the room with a negative, rude & judgmental attitude. She had no interest in my medical history, nor the reason why I was there. This was the worst unprofessional experience, I have ever encountered. She made bad assumptions and did not make me the least bit comfortable. There is nothing compassionate about her. I don't normally leave reviews, but felt that patients should be made aware. Truly a waste of time.

I would NOT recommend Dr. A. Lakhani to ANYONE (not even my worst enemy). She has the most disturbing bedside manner that I have encountered in a "supposed" professional. She came in the room with a negative, rude & judgmental attitude, & even made an assumption, that I was looking for a "miracle pill" before ever reviewing my health history or knowing my reason for being there. She is NOT compassionate or empathetic as her website states. If the visit was FREE, I still wouldn't recommend her.

I was under the impression that I had a pre-op appointment for NovaSure. Dr. Lakhani came into the exam room and stood there with her arms folded, scolding me for asking to talk to her during a scheduling phone call. She then stated that this was not a pre-op appointment, so I asked why I was sitting half-naked. She replied, "I don't know." By the time I left the office, I was in tears. Ironically, I've returned twice to fix billing errors by the staff she stated as, "Best on Maui."

She is not a good listener, and was not up-to-date on treatments for PMDD. During my initial visit for a well-woman exam, she did not even bother to look at blood work I had done beforehand or talk to me about various treatments and the only treatment recommended was a birth control pill. She was more than willing though to talk about cool-sculpting, a cosmetic procedure. I found that odd for an office of gynecology.
