Most rude office staff on earth hung up the phone on me. My children have been seen by this doctor at the Presbytarian center. I called to make an appointment for them at his private practice. He is the PCP on their insurance. The receptionist insisted he was not taking new patients, even though the insurance says he is. I explained they were not new but had been seen by him in the past. I requested that the doctor call me to discuss this and was told to call my insurance for a new PCP. RUDE!

Dr. Kulkarni has been our family doctor for over two decades. His quick and timely diagnosis has saved at least one life in our family. He is very courteous and knowledgeable and takes all the time to answer all of our questions. Best doctor that we have ever had.

Dr.Kulkarni's receptionist is a non cooperative lady. Next time when I go see him I will try to get his personal phone number.

Dr. Kulkarni is very focused on pointing out patient negatives but doesn't offer any solutions for achieving better health beyond starting certain medications. He isn't up-to-date on peer reviewed and/or clinical-based medicine so his recommendations are 15-20 years behind current recommendations. Unusual practices such as EKG's during physicals, expectation that your fasting bloodwork will be done in-office, etc. set him apart from other PCPs. Other friends have used him and left him too.
