My experience was awesome! Their office is clean, the staff is amazing, and my doctor, Dr. Goradia, is the most kind and attentive doctor I have ever had. She is truly an amazing doctor, and a kind soul! If you’re thinking about switching doctors, I HIGHLY recommend!!

For 28 days at JFK, we could not get the doctor to talk to us, she acted as if we were too small for her to deal with. She was “supposed treated my brother, but we do not know what she was doing” It got sooooo frustrating, that I had to officially report her to the Patient Experience Advocacy. Then she supposedly had to leave for few days, at which another doctor took over for her. But when she came back, again, WITHOUT COMMUNICATING with us, she decided to official discharge my brother – contrarily to our meeting with this other medical team. Eventually, we had to request her REMOVED as my brother’s doctor, but she refuses to vacate herself. I was so upset, I threatened to report her to the Medical Board.

Dr. Goradia saved my life. I was very ill and in the hospital starting March 27th, 2020. I called her and she came that night and every day! She is an expert in medical care. She is current on evolving medical conditions and treatments. She is firm with her orders to the hospital staff. She was able to secure the needed specialists for my then condition. I believe without her, i would not be here!

MI – Sep 01, 2018
Worst dr ever. She said she spent 35 mins talking to me and explaining things to me. She never did that. She came in listened to my lungs and left only saying she can't release me. She totally changed my meds not giving me what my dr prescribed. This is behavioral meds too that's not safe. Then she said she did tests that were never done. This all according to the hospital reports. I felt so unsafe with her. She refused to release me after 5 days. I was terrified & felt like a hostage. Stay away

woodbridge, nj – Sep 19, 2017
I would like to say that Dr. Goradia is of high excellence as a doctor. I am new to the area and was in Rahway Hospital. I did not have a doctor yet so I was given Dr Goradia and she was very thorough, caring and exceptional in the diagnosis of my condition. She saved my life in coordination with others. I am truly grateful to her and to have her now as my regular Doctor. I can say enough that she is above and beyond what you need as a Doctor!

Elizabeth, NJ – Jul 30, 2016
She has terirble bedside manners. She does not fully explain to the patient procedures and honestly belittles you. Nurse working there is on her phone texting and looking at her facebook feed while with a patient (happened to me twice). It toook me over an hour to finally be attended. Overall, horrible experiences.

Rahway, NJ – Jun 24, 2016
I moved to elizabeth and switch to this doctor's office worst medical office I been in. The staff is very difficult to deal with loud and curse all the time. I got some blood work done came back for the results I'm here right now writing this review and it's been one hour and half. I asked very politely what is taking so long one of the staff said I could care less how long you wait.
