Columbus, Ga |
Dr Baliga is really nice, but her staff is horrible. I waited 4 hrs to get a shot because no nurse was available. Waited 2 hrs because front desk incompetent personnel. Let's also give honorary mention to the blonde lady upfront that handles insurance and how rude she is. It's sad because I've follow Dr Baliga since she was in St francis and her office is in decadent status due to hiring incompetent personnel.

This office is a disaster from entry to exit! The billing department is totally incompetent and will double bill you at every instance! Keep all your receipts to prove payment because they cannot keep track of their own payments and receipts! They are threatening in tone and manner every way imaginable. This is my professional and personal experience as an RN and medical coder/accounting x 25 years. No $ or unpaid balance= no medication refilled regardless of your health condition.

This place sucks, the staff upfront does nothing but goofs off, you end up waiting for ever. The Dr is unprofessional and so is everyone at the place it's like an adult daycare. They need to hire people with office experience the girl at the front desk with the flower in her hair don't know jack and acts like it's her first day every time I visit this place

VERY FORGETFUL I HAD A DOCTOR CALL ABOUT A SURGERY HE NEED TO PREFORM ON ME I WAS ON WARFIN AT THE TIME HE NEED FOR IT TO BE STOPPED FOR 2 WEEKS SO HE COULD DO IT. HE CALLED HER I SAT IN ROOM HEARD WHAT HE SAID TO HER. HE TOLD ME TO REMIND HER WHEN I SAW HER 3 DAYS LATER SHE NEVER ADDED IT TO MY CHART AND DID NOT REMEMBER TALKING TO THE DOCTOR AT ALL. SO I HAD TO STOP TAKING THE MED MYSELF. I HEARD HER TELL STAFF MEMBER TO STOP TAKING 2 MEDICINES THEN STAFF TOLD ME .THEN NEXT VISIT STAFF WRONG

She's never in hurry to get to the patients needs.
I'm a nurse, the wait is unacceptable. By speaking with other patients in the waiting area it became apparent that this office is booking 4 patients for every appointment time. Unacceptable for any business.
Way too long waiting in the office for an appointment. They need to stop accepting new patients or tell you the actual time that you will be seen. Waiting for two hours is no fun. Also she has stood outside my exam room for 30 mins talking to a staff member about social/nonwork related issues while I sat and waited for her to see me. Unprofessional, I am looking for someone new.
