Don't waste time with this doctor! I think the people that wrote he was great and gave all high marks are his staff or someone he knows because he is not a caring person. A doctor should be someone who sits and listens and cares about your health and problems and IF he can't diagnose it then send you to someone who can. This doctor is to full of himself and I just don't understand why he became a doctor to begin with. Truly the worst doctor I have had the experience of dealing with.

Dr wasn't very professional. Went in room with him, he laughed at my diagnosis and says "what makes you think I know about this condition" because it is uncommon. Wanted to send me for testing but my insurance requires auth. He told me there would be no problem getting it approved because of my dx. Waited weeks upon weeks for Nicole to get the auth and she kept giving me a runaround every time I called. Then tells me its denied but my insurance company has no record of a call ever being placed.

I would highly recomend Dr Dhar extremely thorough and spends alot of time explaining your condition any questions you may have he will also take time answering all your concerns I cannot say enough about the courtesy of his staff everyone is very helpful .

Was going to Dr Dhar for about nine years and was always a good experience. Then my insurance changed and he dropped me. Just recently got insurance he accepts. Appointment was made and Isaw him. Problem with him sending proper pre authorization. He didn't send for two weeks and sent wrong prescription dosage. Two more weeks still no pre authorization and I ran out of medication. Went to office said they would take care of, not even an apology and had audacity not to believe that I called them 3

I've read numerous reviews of Dr. Dhar and his staff being horrible and unprofessional. I have to totally disagree with them. I've been in the office multiple times and every time they have been polite and very professional. Dr. Dhar takes the time to listen to all your problems and helps you figure out a solution.

Extremely disappointed in front office staff especially the office manager who continued on her personal cell phone when discussing an issue at the office. Doc permits staff to be unprofessional, disrespectful and rude. Doctor also lacks warmth. If you are not prepared with questions regarding your ailment, no information is provided. Check your bills, EOBs, and paperwork at all times.
Toms River, NJ |
This doctor's office is an absolute joke. The office manager, Dawn, is the worst of all. She is completely unreasonable. I have never met a more unpleasant person in an office setting before. The entire staff are rude and completely unwelcoming. Medicines are not called in on time, and we were charged for a missed appointment fee for an appointment we never made. This office is rude and unprofessional. Do yourself a favor and find another doctor.
