Worse doctor ever! Terrible bedside manner and does not listen to you. I have been going on almost a year of stomach issues. He told me “it’s not a stomach problem.... it’s a ENT problem” “Stomach doctors don’t work with ENT doctors” Those where his very words! I went to ENT and was diagnosed with LPR and it has now affecting my stomach below. I was told it originates in the stomach. I went back to him for the stomach problem and he refuse to even consider the reflux.... put me on a stomach relaxer and it has come back with a vengeance. He is arrogant and has left me scrambling to find someone else to help. 0 stars!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have been seeing Dr. Lodhavia for 3 years. I am in the health profession myself and find his professionalism beyond reproach. Rather than prescribing unnecessary exams and procedures, he treats based on his medical knowledge and experience. Prior to Dr. L., I was using someone just down the street who I couldn’t understand, kept me waiting forever in the waiting room, ran a conveyer belt type practice and was violating HIPPA laws. Glad to have found someone better.

Dr. Lodhavia has been my Gastroenologist for years and I would of loved to continue with his services; however he started out good and ended up as though my health is not important to him. I could of been treated for one condition I have but he would not file the papers to get approval from my insurance company. As though he pays my insurance. I will not recommend him to anyone. If you start out good you need to end up the same way. Never give up on the employer ( your patients health).

I would not recommend this doctor to anyone. I do not get a feeling from this doctor that he cares about me as a patient. My wait to see him is always longer than the visit itself. The prescription for a medication that I am required to take was not filled after several requests from my pharmacy.Previous Gastro doctors I have had in the past at least checked my vitals, BP, weight , ankles and such through office exams. Not this doctor.

There is a medication that could clear my Hep C. This dr. did not even attempt to call my insurance to request that I be put on it. I've had this disease for over 30 years and it has effected my ability to work and do things I want to do. Do NOT see this doctor if you want compassionate, understanding medical care.
