Nice as a person but as a doctor very unorganized. Alway overbooked so your sitting and waiting way past appointment time. Even now with the virtual appointments. I've been without my medicine for almost a most and she had not returned my phone message or email. The pharmacy has tried to contact her for prior authorization and nothing!

I’ve been a patient of Dr. Wadhwa for over ten years. I have never once had a negative experience with the service, the doctor, or the staff. The staff is the best. They reply to phone calls and emails very quickly. I would very highly recommend Dr. Wadhwa to anyone seeking treatment.

Dr. Wadhwa is great and the new telepsych service is wonderful. She really listens to you, takes the time you need, and is open to your suggestions and questions while discussing treatment options. The only thing that drives me crazy is A) scheduling appointments because getting anyone to pick up the phone is hard and I end up playing phone tag and B) it seems like there is always something going on with getting my prescriptions. Either they get sent too early and expire, the right ones aren't sent when asking for a refill, or if something needs a preauth, you have to track it down yourself because they don't respond to the pharmacy. Extremely frustrating, because it means my med schedule is constantly getting messed up or I end up missing doses while trying to get everything ironed out. That's really not something you want to be messing around with.

Dropped me as a patient due to missed appointments, that were rescheduled due to IEP meetings at School, department meetings, and such. Her schedule says she takes appointments till 8:00pm however this is EXTREMELY untrue! The latest she can take you is in the 4-4:30 range killing anyone working in BSD...also I have NEVER been offered to go to any other office that is listed on this site.

Dr. Wadhwa has been very helpful for my son. However, her staff (scheduling, appointments,...) is completely unprofessional. The office plain and simply cannot schedule appointments. They make mistakes over and over again, and then blame the patient for their mistake. We have records of the appointments that they schedule, but they insist that they are correct. This is not only inconvenient and upsetting, but they have also charged us for appointments that they claim we have missed.

Dr. Wadhwa has dismissed many concerns with my children with ADHD and admitted that she missed the mark and messed up on a medication she prescribed to my child. The staff are extremely rude and offensive. We went there for years and then all of a sudden they ask me to lay a huge bill that was never mentioned before.
