AVOID AT ALL COST (Unless you enjoy wasting your time). Unnecessary appointments and sent me out of network. Poor communication and rude staff. By far the worst practice I've ever seen!

Without even seeing my throat he diagnosed mild sleep apnea. Very careless doctor, no seriousness, he is playing with patients problems. He just did time pass by asking me questions etc then said I can get chest x-ray after 2 min he said just loosing weight will help. He didn't diagnosed anything. I will never go to this doctor. I had to wait 1 hr 20 min then had 10 min of appointment. Don't waste your time.

I have been a patient of Dr. Bangalore since July 2016 any time I call for an appointment they tell me to come in the same day or the next available appointment, unless is Wednesday or Sunday which he's not in the office. The doctor is very attentive to any questions I may have. I am so satisfied with him because he's not only my pulmonary doctor he is also my primary doctor.

My family and I have been patients of Dr. Bangalore for many years. I could not ask for a more skilled and kind man to take care of us. Granted, the office sometimes get crowded but......he is so worth the wait. He cared for my mother like no other doctor could have. My family and I are blessed to have found him and plan to keep him as our primary care physician as long as he will have us.

He has been my Primary for over 12 years now. Very satisfied with his care. He is very popular so, the office can get crowded during the weekends. I always take the first appointment on weekdays when the Doctor and the Staff are more relaxed. One of the best feature of the doctor's office is that he has a technician onsite to draw blood. You don't have to schedule and go to a Lab to get your blood drawn.
