PLEASE read. for three months, I saw my own physician, a Urologist and a general surgeon. No one knew what was wrong with me. The pain I was having in my abdomon/testicale areas was unberable. Finally, I collapsed at work and was taken to St. Rose Hosp, where I stayed for four days. They gave me every test you can think off. CT scan, ultra sound, MRI, yet no one could figure out what was wrong. Then Dr. Sood came in, it took him one exam and resolved my problem. I had an infection.

Currently my mother is on life support after a colonoscopy exam in which he removed a polyp. My mother was in extreme pain and we called his office that afternoon, following the morning outpatient procedure. No one in his office bothered to return our call until my mom needed emergency surgery and Dr. Sood was contacted by a colleague and then he called us one day short of a week after performing the procedure.

1st visit, was referred, mine retired. FYI, Sood had the "same number" as mine. I had been in an er room so I called to have the CT scan faxed over. Staff never gave me the "their address" or "fax" number which was "different" so they never received the records! Dr visit was curt, short. He told me I had been argumentative with his staff, he had enough patients and didn't need me. He is arrogant, rude, prideful, condescending, demeaning and has no compassion. I would stay away from him

Referred here by my PCP for Gerd. Soonest appointment was 3 weeks out. When my symptoms became worse; couldn't eat, sleep, chest tightness, etc. I called to see if they could get me in any sooner. I spoke with a lady who seemed concerned and said she would see if there were any cancellations for the following day or she would squeeze me in at the end of the day. When I called back they were unable to get me in until my original date. I was told to go to the ER! Really!?

Extremely long wait time...first thing in the morning. Twice! Cannot recommend.

Don't leave a message with the front desk. They will embellish this to make you look terrible. These individuals are nothing but Liars cheats, I would not recommend this doctor to anyone ever ever again. A list of simple message for the doctor to call me back, however I got so embarrassed that by the time we were done we were in a pissing match.

Uncaring individual that really does not care about your well-being. Pre determines your illnesses before testing. Cussed me out over the phone. I will never use this doctor and have filed a formal complaint against him. I have nothing to hide I have Crohn's disease determined by for the doctors and this doctor has the gall to tell me that because I haven't had any surgeries that I don't have it. Have nothing to hide but I definitely have a lot to expose I really do not trust this individual.

Dr Sood is the worst doctor I have ever dealt with. he is apathetic,incredibly rude and aggressive to patients. he is extremely unhappy with his life and will take it out on you. I strongly recommend avoiding him at all cost.
in Henderson, NV |
I waited over two hours to see Doctor Rajat Sood. I was upset with the wait, obviously, so I spoke softly, and with my eyes to the floor. When he demanded that I raise my eyes and show him 'respect,' I replied back, 'Respect? Who just blatantly overbooked their office & had me waste a half day of work? With that, Sood kicked me out of his office. And honestly, I'd rather die from this bleeding stomach than see him again. Do not let this terrible human being practice medicine.
He doesn't explain anything, won't answer questions. You're lucky if he spends 2 minutes with you. Makes you feel like you are wasting his time. Was short with me because not all my lab results were in. I have no control over that. His office forgot to send over referral for tests. Am looking for another Dr.
in Henderson, NV |
Very rude and bad bedside manners. His office manager is even worse. He doesn't listen to anything. Waste of time. Find your self another doctor.
