The most unresponsive alleged medical practice I have ever had the displeasure to deal with. I saw Dr. Degala a week ago complaining of constant abdominal pain. He recommended Pepsid tablets and/or Gaviscon. Neither worked. A week earlier I had called to move up my appointment sooner in that I was experienced constant abdominal pain, stomach upset and indigestion. They said they were too full to move me up and they don't call back if they get a cancellation, but that was the best of my experience. Last Thursday, when neither the Pepsid nor the Gaviscon gave me relief, I left a message with the doctor's PA. No reply over 24 hours later. I left a bit stronger message on Friday and finally received a call back. I articulated all of my issues and she indicated that she would transmit that to the doctor. No call back as of 4 days later. I left a message over 24 hours ago with their front desk to schedule appointment - still no call back. There is a culture of non caring here.

I am not sure since his office does not have a good phone service. My other doctors have an answer to a question the day you call. I was told by his medical assistant that they were a very busy office and could not do this.

Dr Degala actually listened to what I was saying and after years of Gastro pain, he actually came up with more alternatives and suggestions. He was warm and informed on all of my previous procedures and has been very helpful in giving me new avenues to persue.
