Went to Patwa from a referral for sleep apnea diagnosis. Very unprofessional experience at his office. For a 12:45 appointment, I got there at 12:35. Office was locked up. I figured they would be right back, maybe at lunch. No one showed until 1:15. Then I didn't get called until nearly 3 PM. That's right, I waited hours. They said they were backed up from the morning appointments. Odd, since it was empty when I got there and they were the ones late. I canceled the follow up appointment.
took 2+months to schedule 1st app. At appt. ,dr recommended my Stopping RX b4 study. office took 3+ months to schedule the sleep study. In the study results, Dr. P incorrectly referenced medication that I hadn't taken in 3 months. Dr. Patwa diagnosed me with RLS and Sleep movement disorder. He only mentioned the latter to me and He prescribed a RX for sleep and said he would refer me to a neurologist, office staff has given me incorrect Referrals. I can't get answer from office on next steps
