Dr. Gilotra efused to see me (had been my doctor for 15 years) after an ER visit because I took a medication prescribed by a specialist which gave me a life-threatening reaction. I had to find a different practice (the new doc is nice but not as good). His front office is incompetent. Try to get your prescriptions refilled–they do not accept fax requests from pharmacies and you have to beg the staff for your refills. The stress is unimaginable.

5 months ago - Had to go to the hospital for pain, and stayed for less than 24 hours. He showed up for 5 minutes prior to my release, and recommended immediate surgery. Got a second opinion (immediate surgery not needed) a month later. I keep getting bill from his office, but unable to reach at the number (301-569-8172) for billing questions.

Great salesman... However in hurry to close the deal! No phone manners! He is good at procedure but clearly does not understand the meaning of the word "Patient: We pay his bills! Patient: Able to accept or tolerate delays, problems, or suffering without becoming annoyed or anxious. "be patient, your time will come"
