Do you know what awful is? How can you trust a doctor who can't write a script for a biopsy and thus causes you to be turned away from Simon Med? Avoid this incompetent. I wasted time and effort going to her and am going to Mayo in MN instead. This type of doctor could be fatal to anyone's health.

Dr. Ahluwalia is one of the rudest physicians I have ever visited, my first visit I waited 1.5hrs in the exam room for her to come in, spend 3 minutes w/ me which consisted of checking boxes in the computer, no physical exam done, no eye contact, she interrupted me every time I started to describe my symptoms to get her boxes of listed symptoms checked off, DO NOT waste your time w/ this doctor, as a nurse I know there are many other doctors out there that actually care!

This office is always very uncomfortable and very crowded with poor room air circulation. I've had to wait TWO hours for my appointment with no explanation why it was taking so long. This Dr is overbooked and rushes through appointments. I have left with more questions than I came with. I had to answer questions of dates, times, Dr's etc when the answers were all in front of the Dr on her laptop. I will be looking for another Dr and not returning to this office.

Came yesterday to follow up on my ultrasound results with Dr Ahluwalia waited an 1hr and 30 mins and she didn’t show up to the room for a short 5 mins consult, I end up seen the PA. Had many questions but didn’t feel comfortable talking to a PA. Drs these days don’t care about health only numbers of patients the see daily to generate more volume. Rather than helping the patient understand the condition and prevention. The office really unorganized with personal information. Awful experience

Sorry this office is disorganized, you have tests and never get the results back. I know there is a shortage of Endocrinologists , so I was surprised when I got an appointment so quickly. Now I know the reason

Saw Dr. Ahluwalia the first time then it was a revolving door of apathetic PA. The PA was not very friendly. When asking simple questions I felt like he was yelling at me most of the time.

I went to see this doctor today referred from my PCP for hypothyroidism that is not responding to medications. I am on a very high dose of thyroid replacement but am still experiencing all of the symptoms of hypothyroidism. This doctor could not be bothered to even listen to the symptoms without interrupting or even fully listen to everything I had to say. I learned in. my medical training that if you LISTEN to the patient they will tell you what is wrong. Her solution? Go to the Mayo Clinic

I did not see Dr. Ahluwalia so I cannot speak for her, but I did see her PA Dr. Morris and he was absolutely great! He knew a lot about my diseases and was very encouraging. I was dreading my appointment, but I'm glad I went and I feel like I have a Dr. that will help me get my sugars were they need to be.
