in Youngsville, LA |
I find Dr. Ahluwalia a very personable and thorough physician with a high drive for excellence. The concern he has for his patients health and comfort is outstanding and although not qualified to judge his expertise I find the way he explains his diagnosis reflective of exceptional knowledge. His pursuit of a high standard of health care is also evident in his staff; equipment; and facility, all of which are above common standards. The staff too is very professional, thorough and engaging.
I waited a bit (30 minutes or so from appointment time in lobby, 30 minutes before I saw the doctor) but what clinic isn't like that nowadays. The staff, especially Dr. Ahluwalia's nurse, were so sweet and he was caring as well.
Church Point, LA |
The wait time in this office is crazy....Dr. is rude and has no idea from visit to visit what is going on with your health. The office takes weeks to get back to you with any tests result, or never do. Doesn't correspond with any other drs or if does it takes him weeks if not longer. Would not recommend him to anyone.

EXTREMELY bad experience with 1st visit! Doctor was rude and wouldn't let me talk. He would keep talking and completely ignore if I indicated I would like to say something or ask a question. I am easy going, but I had to walk out of the exam room and leave because of poor treatment. I am 62 years old and have seen many doctors, but I've NEVER been treated so rudely. STAY AWAY from this doctor! My husband disliked him also.
