I had mix up with her secretary scheduling me a group session with an unpaid nutrition counselor, I missed the appointment, which I was under the impression I was waiting for a call back to reschedule, and she said she was not interested in working with me anymore. I was also tested for diabetes, I called for the results and the nurse said my results came back fine but the dr would call to go over them. I didn't hear anything for 6 weeks and I called back and the dr said I was pre diabetic.

Retched awful woman who is more concerned with insurance reimbursement then providing quality care. Doesn't answer questions and mocks patient.

Cant speak to her ability, because you have to wait 4 months for an appointment. Shouldn't advertise that she's accepting new patients, obviously if you call in Aug for an appointment and they cant see you until December, she doesn't need any more patients. Staff was very uncaring and unwilling to help.

I canceled ONE appointment and she called my OBGYN and told them she was dropping me as a patient. I called and rescheduled an appointment immediately after that. My first appointment after she tried dropping me as a patient started by Dr. Lal walking into the room saying "I don't think I like you too much. You cannot cancel appointments. If you want me to follow you as a patient you must come to every appointment. Period!" Very arrogant and unprofessional. Terrible bedside manor. Don't go here!
