An actual Dr. and his PA's that take the time to understand what is actually going on. Every other office I have been to is quick to put you on medication and then out the door

Told me to take a list of vitamins and 3 protein shakes a day to cure my anxiety. Dude has no idea what he’s talking about. Save your money and go somewhere else

Dr. Pepermintwala is an exceptional doctor that cares about his patients and will go to great lengths to get to the source of any issues. He is thorough and will go the extra mile to ensure that patients are informed and have the tools they need. He is attentive and will take as much time as is necessary for each appointment. He leaves no stone unturned. He treats his patients with as much care as he would his own family members. Patients should be prepared for extended wait times to be seen, but it is totally worth it. He deserves 5 stars!

Heads up to new patients...I was just notified that my insurance will not pay for almost $10,000 for genetic testing...something done very routinely at this doctor's office. I found out far too late. (and I have pretty good insurance) You have to sign a lot of papers as a new patient, and I personally had no idea of the exorbitant cost of genetic testing. Don't sign any paperwork for lab tests without asking about it first and maybe contact your insurance company beforehand. Save yourself the headache.

Do your research, listen to the reviews, I was overcharged, forgotten about, waited 5 hours to see the doctor or someone at all, charged 4000 for a ua and 20,000 for a genetic testing that is unnecessary to my insurance. Now Im being charged outside of my copay for this doctor not being available at my scheduled time so I got charged for after hours. Not appropriate treatment.

This office is a sham. At my first appointment, I was basically told to take SEVEN different vitamins and drink 3 protein shakes a day to cure my anxiety. I have a real medical diagnosis for anxiety and this place is a joke. Honestly, they are dangerous for patients who really need help. I followed all of the instructions I was given and was told to come back in two weeks if I wanted meds. I did just that. This time when I arrived, they were turning away patients that didn't have cash. I

I paid out of pocket five hundred dollars and he recommended I take the same vitamins he takes. He took his daily vitamins while we talked as well as answered a phone call and didn’t even bother to say goodbye. It’s sad that people try to find help in life and a person that has devoted his life to this field show little concern to a person coming to them for help. I really couldn’t believe that I paid that much for so little. I will never go back

My appointment was at 2:30, I was there 20 minutes early to fill out paperwork. I was brought back to a room a little after 3:30, the nurse did the usual stuff, then I sat in the room till 4:52 and went out to the waiting room and asked for my copay back and explained I am an hourly employee and can't take off this much time.
