Amarchand was my relative's hospitalist at Oak Hill Hospital during summer 2020. From the start, he never cared about my relative’s well-being, was very unprofessional and disrespectful to patient and my family (i.e. 0 bedside manner), was offensive when we asked questions about patient’s care and discharge date and plan (among so many other things). He rounded after his practice hours and it was hard to get in touch with. Moved patient to different floors without explaining rationale, including the "prison floor" which landed patient in the ICU and caused further distress. When we did see him, he would pop in and directly out. Took him forever to respond to requests, including getting patient something for pain, nausea, and getting his approval to have a Coke (etc.). Shame on Oak Hill for assigning a cardiologist to someone who did not present cardiology symptoms and for a "medical professional" who cared so little for patient. Never would recommend him.

Horrible doctor, refused to approve any of my medications and left me laying in a bed in Oak Hill Hospital for over 18 hours until I finally left AMA. The hospital has yet to call him on his egregious behavior and how he treats nurses and patients. Find another doctor and live longer!

Very bad bedside manner. Did not treat us a patients more as an issue he had to deal with. Not willing to explain test result in a manner we could understand. Not willing to consult with my fathers primary pulmonologist as he came in thru er. We just moved here and this was only choice. Horrible care to my father and his roommate. Only good thing was a nurse gave him a muchvh needed shave.

Watch the video, it is the EXACT opposite of how this doctor acts and performs. The only thing he cares about is telling everyone how good he is. He thinks very highly of himself and he isn't hesitant to tell you how much his patients love him. Reality check, his patients often switch doctors because of his attitude and lack of compassion.

This man left my mom without her prescribed pain management, suffering in a hospital for more than 16 hours, and then discharged her without any because he said she refused a treatment for a UTI. (She cannot remember doing so - she went in with massive confusion and she was also repeatedly falling; still worried it was a ministroke.) He said that he was too busy to call me to talk about concerns with my mother. He's negligent & it is also cruel to let a chronic pain patient suffer.

Never like to leave bad reviews, but after my husbands experience with this doctor at the hospital I wouldn't recommend him to anyone. My husband went to the hospital for severe stomach pain and severe a edema. Already having kidney problems the doctor came in to order heart exams. Not one thing was done about his stomach. He sat in pain for four days until they finally ordered a gi dr.amarchand did not respond to order on his bp rising,and never ordered gi exam knowing he's had prev gastro issu

Dr.Amarchand discharged my mother from the hospital after several transfusions in the ICU and assured my family that Mom was okay.. 24 hrs later her Primary care provider sent her back to the same ER, bleeding from every orifice of her body and refused to admit her OR to transfer her to another facility.
