What People Say About Dr. Ravinder Tikoo, MD

The doctor is good, listens, and show care about his patients needs. The location has mostly everything in the same office. So most testing necessary can be handled in office. The staffs, especially in medical records are beyond horrible, a negative star wasn't possible. incident, a record was requested, and they took 2 Months to release the record to the doctor sharing the same office space with them. 2 MONTHS, after 3 release forms and endless physical appeals for the records. Second, SSD office requested a letter on behalf of my mom. I faxed the request needed, and then my mom dropped it off. Called them, and got a call back days later stating it would take a week to get the letter. 1 1/2 week from drop off date, I am told to wait another 2 weeks because the doctor left the country and didn't get to sign the letter. When asked why, because the office manager never typed up the letter and as of 2 days ago the doctor left. This is the North Bergen office, not about other location

Horrible!! Doesnt examine patients- makes you wait 2-3 hours crammed in with 10-20 other patients while he sits in his office. No follow up,does not keep good records, sends out incorrect letters. If you want treatment don't go there if you want someone to just shove Scripts down your throat have At it! I have already reported him.

Honestly, the wait is terrible, but Dr. Tikoo is very empathetic toward me as a patient. He is well informed and stays abreast of best practices. If it was not for him I wouldn't be able to have the quality of life it takes to be a good employee, husband, and father. I thank you Doc and my family thanks you as well. Additionally, if you treat his staff with respect, they are more than willing to reciprocate. I could not imagine having to deal with what they have to deal with on a regular basis.

WARNING: HORRIBLE! HORRIBLE!! HORRIBLE!!! Most unprofessional doctor in Hudson County. On your appointment day, bring a pillow, food and water for your 2-3 hour long wait. Expect just a prescription and nothing more. Oh yeah, we will all be reading about 'this guy' once he's caught cheating the system, which is exactly what usually happens to crooked doctors. P.S. Don't try calling the office. No one ever answers... hahahaaaaa! "What's Up Doc"

If I could give 0 stars to this office I would. The wait time from the moment you walk in to the moment you see the physician is 3 hours. Every time. In addition, the staff is lazy and unhelpful. When I was finally able to find another neurologist and requested my medical records, it took MONTHS and many many hours of phone calls. I spent more time calling this office than at my job. My advice is if you've been referred to this office then run for the hills.

This place is very dodgy, when u walk in it feels like your are going into a 3rd world health facility. The scheduling is extremely terrible, patients cramp in the office for hours waiting for service. The 2 times i went there i was waiting for at least 3 hours to see the doctor. This is not acceptable at all considering the cost of this service. The staff is very rude and slow. The nurses/assistants have no idea what they are doing. I will not set foot at this place again.

Awful! Never did an examine on me. Just sat behind his desk typing and asking questions. Didn't seem to know how to treat my problem. Office very poor kept. I would have a 330 appointment and wouldn't be seen until 530 almost 6 o'clock. Everytime you go for an appointment the staff is different and they don't know what to do. They are also extremely rude.
