I don't even know how this man still has a license. He will sell you anything to make $$. When I went in for a physical, he completely rushed me and made a comment about how I was taking too much time and it had not even been 10 minutes. One of my complaints was about back pain that had lasted 8 months. He told me lose weight. When I went to see a special that actually took the time to order an MRI I found that I had a gigantic herniated disc that I needed surgery for. I stopped seeing this "dr" and a year later I received a bill for a large lump sum that I disputed with my insurance. Two weeks later I received a call from the office apologizing for the issue. Yeah the issue is that this office probably falsely puts in claims. I was also not told about their $25 charge upfront to draw my blood.

Worst experience possible
I have been a patient of Dr. Bawa, over 10 years. I am healthy and generally only go in for my annual wellness visit. Other than the fact that I saw a different PA every time, I never really had any problems... Until this past year when I was diagnosed with cancer. The level of rudeness and incompetence and complete lack of concern I have encountered is since then is overwhelming. When I was finally able to speak to Dr. Bawa personally, he told me my care was not his responsibility. So I promptly fired him. Then they have the nerve to send me a bill over a year later for the office visit that started the whole fiasco of me never getting the tests I needed for my oncologist. It is really awful to be dealing with a life threatening illness and have to be treated the way I was treated by the Dr and his staff.

I've been a patient of Dr Bawa and Assoc, for a few years now but in the past year the level of service has dropped considerably. I contracted the Covid Delta variant back in June and contacted the office after I tested positive. I left a total of 7 messages over 3 1/2 weeks almost begging for a return call. Only after that time I received a call 1 day to have the nurse call in several items to help me along. Only I was beginning to get better at that time on my own after having weathered the storm naturally. Even now into Sept I cannot get messages through if I need something. Or should I say I rarely get a call back to let me know it was received, or my issues were being dealt with. If I am in medical need, I have to just suffer through it until I can get into the office which is never right away. I feel there should be some concern, at least a level of care, that addresses the needs of the patient sooner than 3 days to a week after or sometimes not at all. I hope for a better review
