Dr. Cholankeril is great but he does not know the kind of people they work for him. I am going to present a c omplaint. They made me lost a day of work going for a nuclear stress test. I went to the hospital and they told me they did not receive my insurance authorization. I called the doctors office they told me the insurance denied the test. I called Cigna they don't have any record of requesting authorization from them.

Terrible experience ! The first thing you would notice is his arrogance . My husband didn't a need a pacemaker...This horrible doctor was trying to convince us of the opposite to make money..... Just horrible !
Rahway, NJ |
Not fond of his bedside manner. No reason why I have a 4pm appointment and not taken in the room until 8pm and only with doctor for less than 5 minutes. Plus the office staff one girl was extremely nice the other needs lessons in customer service skills!!! She was BEYOND rude.
