Dr. Kakmar is a great person and good doctor. He's staff is very low grade. Office does not get cleaned or sanitized well. Evertytime I visit there is wait 2 hours. Also they do not post signs or provide masks to people with infections. I went in for a knee check up and ended up with pneumonia from a lady hacking her lungs and guts out in the lobby for 45 minutes as I waited. Then I waited another hour in the room before the doctor visit. Terrible staff, good doctor. Never going back.
Scheduled an appointment for sick visit /tests When walked in door girl at desk was playing on her phone didn't acknowledge me! Then put her finger up (like hold on) when I approached front desk. After that she proceeded to say I need to sign a paper saying I will pay for every visit going foward in full until deductible is met. Their new policy! I didn't sign it. So they can pocket $ and stil Bill insurance. Then I was told by nurse they are allowed to address 1 issue per visit 15 per patient!
