Dishonest. Dr was not in the office, has a practitioner nurse see you and charge for a regular appointment.

If I could give a 0 I would. Dr. B spent three minutes with me (not one minute more). He read the result of my test and told me what I already knew, that I need a CPAP. When I requested an explanation for his decision regarding a CPAP vs. an APAP he was really upset and impatient and left the room stating it's the best but no explanation. APAP is a newer and better technology that costs exactly the same as the CPAP but he adamantly refused to discuss with me why he chose a CPAP for me.
Dr Lal Bhagchandani is the most unprofessional doctor my families have ever seen. He doesn't take time to explain my family member's condition (the minute he enters the examination room, no more than 2 mins, he wants to leave the room without discussing my family member's condition), seems to me that he doesn't care to listen to our concern and answer them accordingly . He gets impatient and rude when we ask questions, we also felt like he belittled us. I would not recommend him to anyone.

I had to wait about 20 minutes...not bad. The office is very small but clean. Dr. B was nice, friendly and I have no complaints. The office staff is very busy but they were also nice.
