Patient Comments (8)
Bedford, TX |
Waiting more than 2 hours at every visit is so unprofessional. It can’t alwsys be an ‘emergency’. The client before me had an appointment 5 minutes before mine. I? feel that is the issue, trying to see too many clients. I? too have a job and can’t wait that long. At envery visit.

Dr. Vasandani offers little information on how to over come RA. The first visit he spent a lot of time explaining the new aggressive treatment plans for symptoms. These treatments consist of suppressing the immune system. People often get cancer after long tern use of these treatments. This rheumatoligist like others only will treat your systems. To my disappointment, they do nothing to offer a cure. Billions of dollars are made off treating these symptoms. Shame on them.
This is an honest review. My first meeting with Dr. Vasandani was exceptional. He must've spent two hours just taking notes, which I've never experienced before with any doctor. But that was the last time I saw him. From then on, only his nurse sees me and for no more that five to ten minutes at a time. There has been no follow up on the drugs that I'm taking, no physical exams, and no answers to my questions. Last time, I waited for almost two hours and only saw his nurse. I'm heartbroken.

I've been a patient for over 3 years and drive from Abilene to see him and his wonderful nurses and PA! They are all the best and would drive a 1000 miles to see!

While Dr. Vasandani seems to be an excellent Dr. wait times have never been less than 2 1/2 HOURS and have gone as long as 4 hours. This is NOT an exaggeration. So unless you have all day for an appointment you might want to go elsewhere. Very disappointing for such a good Dr. and after a long drive to get to Lubbock.

Great doctor!!! Very kind and knowledgeable. Incompetent staff is beyond frustrating and makes lots of mistakes. Good luck getting anything you need on time. Perhaps they need additional staff to service their clients.

He was very caring & informed me of my issue. I have only met with him once so far. However, I like him & his staff.
in Lubbock, TX |
Dr Vasandani only cares about himself. I called him when I was having a flare up and he did not call me back. I ended up in the hospital for 4 days and then called to have a follow up and once again he did not call me back.
