What People Say About Dr. Roy Prashad, DO

This is by far the most compassionate and knowledgeable rheumatologist I've seen,..and I've seen many. He's a down to earth, easy to talk to doctor,..and the best part is he actually listens. I'm a complex case but he has covered all bases and isn't quick to stick you with a label. I never feel rushed in this office and feel like I have his complete attention, unlike most Doctors these days that spend most of your appointment time looking at a computer. I highly recommend this Doctor!

My husband and I have been patients of Dr. Prashad's for almost 11 years. He is kind, caring, thorough and an expert in his field. He has never rushed us through our appointment and has taken us the same day when it's been an emergency. No office is perfect and after reading a few negative reviews below I can honestly say we have never seen Dr. Prashad behave in anything but a caring, professional manor to his patients, while at the same time I've seen disrespectful, irrational people in the waiting room. Any extra waiting time is due to the fact that he is taking the time that the patient before you needs. We try to remember that when we have to wait and when its our appointment, we try to stay on point and be considerate of the next patient. We can also say that as of our latest appointments his office staff is excellent, caring and professional. We consider Dr. Prashad a very important part of our overall health care. Highly recommend.

I have been a patient of Dr. Prashad for years. I just went to an appointment but was told that I did not have an appointment. I told them that I did, but was not believed. As I stood there telling the staff as well as the doctor that I in fact had an appointment, another patient was leaving, and apparently her appointment was messed up too. I finally got to see Dr. Prashad after an hour, and needed an injection in my hand. He refused, saying he was ‘accommodating me’ and that he did not have the time. Accommodating me? I asked him. Again, I told him that I had an appointment. He did not believe me. He stated that he ‘fit me into his break’ (really? He needs a break at 10am after starting at 9?). He said to ‘come back later’. When I got home I found my original appointment card, and I called the office and asked for their email so that I could prove that I did in fact have the appointment. If this is how he treats patients, I can understand the high employee turnover. Never again!

I am a physician in an unrelated specialty, with arthritis and a complicated medical history. Dr. Prashad is a "physician's physician "-extremely knowledgable, thorough, listens carefully and actively , warm and empathic, reassuring, and a great diagnostician. He has managed to resist the pressure to see more and more patients, faster and faster-not beholden to a hospital administrator or an insurance company. His front office staff are goofballs.

The wait in this office is ridiculous . It seems ever since the Office manager left the office service has become worse. The front desk staff is bitter and talk about the doctor openly and the girl at the desk is moody at times she is nice other times a real you know what. He is a good doctor but somehow I do not think they value a patients time here preferences are given to drug reps that intrude it seems.

Nightmare experience! Waited over 2months to be seen by this so called Dr. Confirmed they accepted my insurance upon appt scheduling & when I arrived at my appt, office re-confirmed they accepted my insurance. 1hr wait time. Weeks later my insurance rejected the claim b/c the office was wrong & they did not accept my insurance after all. Dr sent me pregnant for a pelvic xray without doing a pregnancy test & exposed baby to radiation. Dr also refused to call me w/bloodwork results. Terrible staff
