When you talk about surgery with a doctor, you always think of follow-up questions when you get home, right? Shouldn't the doctor respond to a call or an email within 48 hours and answer those simple, short questions? Well, not Dr. Prasad, apparently. Emailed last Friday and today is Wednesday. Left a message early this AM, and still no response! She must be overwhelmed.

i was dissatisfied with the doctor - she was too eager to suggest exploratory and unnecessary surgery. Her bio says she believes in holistic medicine, that was not at all apparent from how she suggested treatment to me.

Pleasant but absolutely no follow up regarding test results in spite of my calling several times.

She doesn't have patience and doesn't listen. She acted like she wouldn't care about the patient. I couldn't trust her and would never go to her again. I wouldn't recommend her to my friends. Ever.
