Care started out adequate, but increasingly went downhill. Rarely saw Dr. Garg, and were usually scheduled for the PAs (they're actually more attentive). Never seen at our appointment time, and dr was always in a hurry (no interaction with child). Desk staff is friendly, but disorganized. Office manager submitted claims (twice) to the wrong insurance, and even sent me an email about someone else's child. Charged my credit card in error, and never sent any notice (only found out on my statement).

Few issues with this doctor: 1. First of all, dont respect your time. We came on time for our appointment but had to wait for 50 mins before doctor showed up. 2. Doctor does not have patience to listen to us. No smiles. Does not try to communicate with child (why would you become a pediatrician if you can't handle children) 3. Stayed with us for exactly 2 mins 42 seconds. Mentioned that this visit is going to be "SICK" visit instead of regular visit and insurance will be charged accordingly!

Harsha in Folsom – Jan 27, 2018
The front office staff is rude and does not care. My son was a patient here for 6 months when they decided that they would not see him because the doctors name was not listed on his insurance card. and told me this while I was in the waiting room that i needed to have it fixed before he would be seen. I scrambled to get my insurance to send info over so my son could get his shots as planned. now that we have changed doctors they are very unwilling to give me his medical records. HORRIBLE

Folsom, CA – Oct 17, 2017
Dr. Garg was the pediatrician who examined my child in the hospital the day after she was born. I trust Dr. Garg but am thinking of taking my child elsewhere. Dr. Garg is very rarely available. Instead, office staff schedules my child to see Dr. Jamwal or the PA. It seems like everyone in the office with the exception of Dr. Garg is incredibly rude, especially Dr. Jamwal.

El Dorado Hills, CA – Nov 29, 2016
This is by far the worst Doctors office I ever went. Dr. Shikha want to see as many patients(kids) as possible. She doesnt even have time to listen to the details of what parents or kids have to say. Always in a hurry to make as much money as possible. Completely unethical. I don't recommend parents to take their kids here if they love their kids. Period. :(

Terrible experience. My soon was a patient in for his first 18 months, and we could not have been more disappointed and upset. From the rude receptionist, the dingy office, and incompetent doctors, i would recommend avoiding this practice and looking elsewhere. I wish we had left sooner, but as a new mom I was overwhelmed and kept thinking it would get better. It doesn't, and there are better options. New parents beware.
