What People Say About Dr. Sharad Lakhanpal, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

Was a patient at the Irving Office due to closer facility (Lewisville) not seeing new patients. I had moved in March from Vegas. Had copies of medical records. There were no problems until I asked to be transferred for January 2019. Mind you I visited in October and he approved 3 months meds. Now when pharmacy calls for refill approval the office denies the refills and says contact Lewisville. I just saw you. Not paying extra office visit. Just approve meds to January. Its Vindictive!

This has to be the worst doctor ever. It is all about the money. I have blood tests already and he refuses to use them. He rayed my hands and I had not mentioned them to him. He is terrible. His staff in Dallas is as bad. The Irving staff is better but not great. I left his office with nothing. He told me my family doctor could prescribe medication for my osteoporosis! Really - after two visits and an enormous amount of time. By the way, he cannot read his own lab results.

I saw him in his Dallas office. His staff was very professional and efficient. I trust his knowledge and ability to get me well. The web portal is great for reviewing all the lab results and notes from appointments. I would highly recommend rheumatology associates.

I've seen Dr. Lakhanpal a couple of times now. He seems very knowledgeable and helpful. The front office staff in his Irving office aren't so friendly, but his nurse and lab tech are. The staff in the Dallas office are exactly what you'd want them to be. I suggest seeing him there.

While I believe Dr Lakhanpal is a very good doctor, I decided to find another rheumatologist for two reasons - one is that I have to see him before every infusion which I think is unnecessary and is inconvenient and costly - the other is that I hate the MPP Infusion Center he uses. I think MPP gouges the insurance companies (my treatment price more than doubled since they took over) and they never became a preferred provider for United Healthcare as they promised. The staff is incompetent. ,
