Terrible would not send ANYONE here
Riverside, CA |
My first appointment with him I waited 3 1/2 hours! When I inquired after nearly 2 hours the office staff, incredibly rude to every patient, said "he always runs late". When I finally was dumped into one of his shabby patient rooms I could hear him yelling at a patient in the other "holding tank". He asked very few questions of me and ordered an endoscopy and colonoscopy. Unfortunately for him I smelled a rat - he has horrible ratings and actions from CA Medical Board. Watch out.

Considering the poor review I gave I did more research and Dr Chopra. He is the best in his field the assistant is the one who made the error not him. I would not be alive if he had not taken the time to do his best. I wish I had of waited to send the other review. He is a good doctor. I can't say anything about the office I was admitted from the ER.

On November 10, 2016 I had 2 procedure done by Dr. Chopra, The first one was endoscopy, The second one was a colonoscopy. Unfortunately I woke up during the endoscopy procedure it was the worst nightmare you can ever experience and it happened a second time the worst nightmare I have her experience when everything was over I asked to see the doctor and he wasn't there no one approached me. The worst doctor ever no consideration for his patients

Nightmare!! No regard for anybody's time. Very rude and always late! He had me down for the wrong procedure at the surgery center! Took weeks to get a phone call back and get the referral started, even though it was marked STAT. He gave no follow up instructions and wanted me to fast for 2 days! This man should not be in practice. His entire office is a cluster of frustrated patients waiting and waiting .. He is disorganized , very rude, blunt NO BEDSIDE MANNER whatsoever !!!

His consideration for others time is horrible. I had an appointment at 4, there was a completely full waiting room. It was stated that he is always late.
in Riverside, CA |
Worst gastro EVER - lied about not being able to open a DVD showing surgical damage and covered it up, refused to make an appointment, very dishonest!!! At least 20 people waiting in the hallways, he books five patients at the SAME TIME. Prepare to be there for at least FOUR HOURS.
