She is a great pulmonologist but is always running late on her appointments. She listens when you talk to her & willingly answers questions

I was referred to Dr Ahuja for Pulmonolgy care. Dr Ahuja advised that I should start taking Xolair injections to assist me with my asthma. First issue when I went in for my appointment to began taking the injections the person (Alicia) administering the injecttions had no clue on what the shot was she advised she just gives the shot. Secondly after finally getting the shots I began to experience a side affect and when I called to ask what can I do the Dr referred to go seek another physician.

I love Dr Ahuja and I’ll continue to go here because of her, but the Orange City front office staff is the rudest staff I have ever seen.There is a sign on the reception window that says “do not knock on glass do not slide open window.”I understand why people feel they need to. I stood there for 3 minutes and none of the 5 people at the desks looked up.One girl was playing on her phone.I moved to the other window-same thing.I don’t know how they keep their jobs. But Dr Ahuja is awesome.

I have worked in the healthcare industry for over 20 years in that time I have interacted with many clinicians none of which showed the expertise and caring as Dr. Ahuja. She takes her time with her patients looking to solve issues that may not be under her purview to guide them to achieve better health. She is proficient in her specialty and communication going above and beyond expectations. In addition, I found her staff a mirror image of her compassion and understanding.

Worst doctors office I've ever been to. Office staff can really make or break a doctor, the customer service here is very poor. When you call to schedule an appointment be prepared to be met with an attitude and even be hung up on.... when you show up for the appointment expect to be ignored because they are too busy talking to each other and playing on their phones... expect to have your information switched with another patient's and not receive a phone call that they cancelled your appointmen
