      I would walked out if I knew I could easily find another doctor that took my insurance. The waiting area carpet is filthy, the chairs are all ripped up, and the dirty pens at the front desk are in need of some TLC. Some of the chairs were also dirty. I had a 1:30 appointment and did not see the doctor until 2:30. Dr. Ahluwaila is one strange dude. He kept asking the same questions over and over again, typed more than he talked, and acted like he couldn't give a damn about me.
      in Maricopa, AZ |
      The staff and office workers were great to work with, I liked how they handled everything. P.A. Sean Smith is also a very good and very helpful person, I saw him twice. Dr Ahluwalia seemed angry, arrogant, and as though I were wasting his time. I was waiting for CT results - I got them (sort of) but not enough to understand what's wrong with me, or what to do. I'm not going back, I'll find another doctor. Only had 2 bad doctors in my life - Dr Ahluwalia is the worst. Simply put, he doesn't care.
      Maricopa, AZ |
      I've seen the guy twice in the times I have gone there. Once for two seconds during my consultation appointment, and right before my procedures.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
