I tried to schedule an appointment to discuss the potentially serious side effects I was having to my medication. The soonest I could get an appointment was a month out. Fortunately my primary doctor was able to see me and deal with the severe shortness of breath.

There's something sketchy going on in this office. His EMG consisted of just four needle pokes in each leg and then he left the room with me sitting there bloody and confused. Also, charged for a visit where he tapped my knees and elbows for reflexes, then left the room. I have a rare disease that needed treatment right away. His lack of correct neurological testing cost me valuable time. Terrible communication skills.

These people are terrible. I have to wait on hold upwards of 10 minutes just to speak with someone, and then nothing. Time to request new prescription and nothing. Pharmacy never gets anything. Call back the next day, same song and dance. It's now been a week of calls, each with at LEAST 10-15 minute holds as people check with whoever it is they're checking with and still nothing. Now I'm waiting for a manager to call me back. Yeah right. There is no way that this place cares for its patients on

I waited two months to see Dr. Dixit. When I arrived at his office someone who had never seen before entered the room. When I asked her who she was she refused to give me her name and said we would have to reschedule the visit. When I asked the office staff who she was they wouldn’t tell me as well. I believe that she wasn’t even a doctor. I feel that there was some fraud going on here. I would be very careful using this doctor.

I have been seeing Dr. Dixit for many years now. His knowledge is exceptional and he knows what he is talking about! He was the first doctor to be able to diagnose my condition after a decade of symptoms and finally provide some relief. The office staff is kind and caring while Dr. Dixit truly cares about his patients and their wellbeing.

Dr. Dixit is an excellent doctor. He always greets me with a smile on his face. My first visit after a bit he told me he was sure I have MS but had to do some tests to confirm. He spends all the time necessary to answer all questions and to explore treatment options. I am so thankful he is my doctor as he makes me feel at ease with a difficult diagnosis. Thank you Dr Dixit and all of your wonderful staff. I really love your office!
