I wish I didnt have to leave a star at all, But there isn't an option for zero stars. Tiffany the staff "manager" is the most unprofessional human I have encountered throughout my career, alongside her boss Dr. Chowhari. I needed paperwork filled out regarding a legal matter. They charged me $275 for a doctors visit. When I walked in they did not take my vitals nor my urinalysis sample. However, narcotics were being pushed on me, which I refused. The doctor walked out of the room w/o signing.

The worst person I've ever met. I cannot believe he's allowed to practice medicine. I went for migraines. He spent less than five minutes with me after I waited for 2.5 hours. I left with 3 prescriptions, including two narcotics. No explanations, no exam, nothing.

Dr. Chowdhari is a great Doctor! I'very been here for 2 years. He takes the time to find out what is actually wrong with me. He doesn't just give out medications which is unfortunately probably what most people go there for. He also plans nerve blocks which have really helped my pain. I always know I'm in for a good laugh when I visit his office.

I was referred to Dr Chowdhari for my back & neck pain & I can truly say that I would rather deal with my PAIN then deal with this man! He has no respect for people! He is rude & disrespectful to his patients. I've been witness to the way he talks to them. He has no consideration for others and there time. When you get a f/u appointment call they make sure to tell you NO Children are allowed to come to the office. you can see that the staff follow his poor attitude & rudeneseness! Do NOT use him

went there hopefull after my last pain doctor i was seeing in new port richey that dropped staywell was far better then comming hear. I waited a hour and a half to only spend five minutes with him...what a joke...Beware others this doctor has no compassion and understanding. Finally went to the Florida spine center and the doctor Hanna is amazing and doing so much more to help me and listens and spends time with ya!

A very dangerous Dr only interested in collecting as much money as quickly as he can. Almost killed me because him and his staff could not be bothered to observe me and my body's reaction to ketamine after an injection. Injection to the time I was in my husband's truck was less than 10 minutes. Industry standard is 30 minutes observation minimum.
