Part 2... You have Medicare you shou,d know they only pay 80% so don't come until you pay 20% I said I have a secondary that pays the rest Medicaid... She says we don't accept Government Handouts. I was so appalled. Lady I have a handout because I'm partially paralyzed. She said pay or don't come and literally hung up in my face. So if you can deal with someone like that then I would recommend Dr Rai... He is a very good Doc... And his Pa is very good as well.

Dr. Rai himself is a good doctor and very easy to get along with. His staff on the other hand, completely clueless. On top of it, his wife manages the office and she is as rude as they come and makes the office completely unorganized. I would recommend Dr. Rai ONLY if you can wait hours on end and deal with the ignorant staff.

He did what he wanted to do not what was requested of him. His office staff were very belligerent and when I called for required follow up appt I was screeched at to pay what insurance EOB's dictated I was expected to owe even though the practice Never sent me any bills or statements! I was made to feel like I was an idiot in the office when I asked questions about procedures or why he wanted to do an epidural at a certain level when I knew from prior injections it did not relieve any pain.
