I went in with serious concerns and he said let me ask the questions first and then he would address mine. When asked about nausea and vomiting I said yes significant weight loss of 70 pounds. Even with these symptoms he addressed none of them and then never went over my questions. He also lied to me about my test results because I already had them.

Highly Competent Doctor , Horrible office staff. Never return calls, Do not answer Pharmacy requests.You must argue with them to get the prescriptions to the Pharmacy. Office staff unfortuanetly are incompetent also. I hung in for over a year with this Doctor it never got any better. Sad that his office staff has ruined his overall rating.

Dr. Hundal himself seems quite knowledgeable, but his staff takes months to get anything done, doesn't return phone calls, does not communicate about treatment plans and procedures so patients have no idea what to expect (I learned more on Google than from 5 nurses combined), administers clumsy painful injections, dismisses patient complaints about medication side effects, gives advice without reading patient files, and does not respect patient privacy AT ALL. Very disappointed.

No problem with Dr. My problem is with call back. After leaving messages two times. This creates anxiety. Not sure anyone checks messages. Another Dr. schedule my appointment.

Takes 3 and 4 calls to get a call back for appointment. Takes multiple calls and emails to get presciptions refilled after no response to pharmacy. Office staff on one appointment refused to take blood pressure because doesnt like to do that, in front of me, the patient. When call phone line no option to talk to live person and dont get call backs for days or not at all, driving follow up calls. There are only 2 Endocrinoligists that accept my insurance in the area so i am stuck.

I came to see Dr. Hundal for my thyroid condition after being treated by another endocrinologist for 10 years. One of my issues with my other doctor was that he patronized me and was dismissive when I had questions about my care. Dr. Hundal is very pragmatic and thorough. If you want a physician who is warm and engaging, then his approach may not be for you. He is highly competent and welcomes my questions. I am very satisfied.His nurse practioner is good. Office staff ok, not great.

I was referred to Dr. Hundal by my OB, to get a second opinion on if I have gestational diabetes. His staff did not reply to the urgent appointment request for 2 weeks, so I had to call them to set it up for a Saturday 8am slot. They failed to send me for the necessary lab work so my appointment was useless. Dr. Hundal was rushed through the appointment, leaving me with many questions. I've called multiple times for my results (available a week ago) and still haven't received a call-back.

First Visit, 2/29/16: Listened attentively to everything I said. He and his assistant, Lea, made me feel like I was special, my opinions regarding my health were valid and neither interrupted me as I spoke. I have been following Dr. Hundal's recommendations and already see positive physical results.
