He’s horrible! I was hospitalized twice under his care for ulcerative colitis. He did nothing except try and change my diet. My kidneys were damaged due to the effects of this disease. He’s very hard to deal with on a bedside manner and does not listen to his patients at all.

During my late afternoon visit at Dr Maheshwaris clinic, I felt as if I was delaying them from leaving early. The Dr rushed through the visit and didn’t seem too concerned about diagnostics. I expressed my concern about higher risk for esophageal cancer and taking reflux medication long term. Despite communicating my concerns, the Dr blew through the consultation and sent me off with a prescription for my usual meds. When I tried to reiterate my concerns and ask for a better work up and explanation, he dismissed quickly me. I then expressed my concern to the front desk staff, but they were just as apathetic.

Office staff very nice. Physician however, was very dismissive. Handed me a diet sheet and an exercise sheet. Did not ask one question about my current diet or exercise regimen. I think he assumed I was old and sit around all day, which is not the case at all. Very disappointed.

Did not have a choice of GI doc's since I was admitted to the Hospital after emergency abdominal problems. Was told I needed a Upper GI and had the procedure done by Maheshwari. Terrible bed side manner and he pretty much told me I was a liar after questioning his so called consult with me. It never took place and my family also did not have any contact with him at all. He said he spoke with me...but did not! Would not trust him as far as I could throw him. Has a "better than thou" attitude , and thinks he is a know it all! I would give him a "0" if I could.....

This has hands down been the worst experience I have ever had with a physicians office. Every interaction was difficult and required multiple follow up phone calls. No one in the office did what they told me they would do. Unable to trust their word on all matters. Always had to follow up on my own. Maheshwari didn’t even call himself to explain my diagnosis and biopsy results. Would never recommend him to anyone. Will be changing my care to another physician ASAP.

my first time - I can't say much about the doctor I really didn't see much of him. I think he was trying to help me but his nurse/staff member was not helpful at all. I didn't know the doctor requested two more test. Nurse never said somehow I found out by physically going up to office for answers. I called her to say I was coming she said she would be there all day she was not. I waited, the other staff keep looking at me like I was crazy. after awhile waiting the desk put in touch with another lady. She was the one who said is needed two more test. After my GI test I got very sick. I called the nurse I don't thing she even talked to doctor I lost 8#. I had a terrible experience especially with this nurse if you want to call her that.

Overall experience was great. I feel he is a very thorough doctor. I am being treated by him currently. He answers all of my questions and makes me understand my unique situation. If you have any problem getting call backs from the office ask for Billie. She has taken care of every single thing i have needed and she does so promptly. I am so happy with her. A very nice caring and compassionate person. Thank you Billie

He seemed quite good. However, if you’ve had gastric surgery; avoid him. He seems not to understand the limitations ppl with this surgery have. I won’t be back.

I've had numerous tests and an upper GI from Dr. M. over the last six months. I am no closer to resolving my problems. Every time I see him it's like a stab in the dark. The last time I saw him my appt was at 8:15am. I finally get to see him at 9:00am. When I ask how is it possible for him to be this far behind already....his answer: "Thats how I roll!' Do NOT use this man.

This Dr. bedside manner is NOT good. When giving a diagnosis to a patient, it is important to have patience while the patient is trying to process the information. Dr. M became very annoyed when we were trying to understand what he was telling us.

I had a horrible experience with this doctor. He was annoyed when I had a return follow up appointment due to my symptoms getting worse. I had lost over 20 pounds in 2 weeks without trying or knowing why and didn't seem to care. It seems like he just tries to rush through patients and cram as many as possible without taking time with them. I cannot state this more strongly, stay as far away from this doctor as possible. If I would have not seen other doctors then I would still be chronicall

Dr. Maheshwari did not ask anything in regards to the current problem- instead, he started giving suggestions on OTC medicines and food supplements besides suggesting endoscopy and ultrasound for gall bladder- I am wondering how a doctor could suggest these test without asking enough questions to rule out other possibilities. He could not answer even simple question on blood test- and he refers yeast as bacteria - I would suggest to stay away from this doctor. DESERVES NEGATIVE RATING

Dr. Maheshwari saved my life! I went in for a routine colonoscopy. During our consult, he asked about my medical history. I'm healthy, nothing much to discuss. I mentioned that 30 years ago during my last pregnancy I was told that I had developed a hiatal hernia but it didn't bother me that much. He asked if he could scope me while I was under. He saw something, did a biopsy, it was cancer. Esophageal gastric cancer, stage 1. He sent me to MD Anderson. Tumor has been removed. Forever grateful!
