Dr. Gupta is an awesome Endocrinologist. She took the time to go over results of labs and thoroughly explained her course of action in order to get my blood glucose levels under control. My diabetes had been seriously out of control and with her adjustments of medications it is now under control. She takes the time with her patients to go over her recommendations and is excellent at explanations. I trust her medical expertise and professional judgement.

Awful. I spent almost 2.5 hours here. Total waste of a day. I've had type 1 diabetes for 27 years. She took my PDM which controls my insulin pump and adjusted it so high that if I'd kept those settings, I'd probably be in a hypoglycemic coma by now. I've been chasing them for 2 weeks now, to send my insulin prescription to the pharmacy. They seem incapable of doing such a simple thing. I ran out of insulin for my pump a week ago. Had to borrow a friend's. Go anywhere else but here.

On my first visit with Dr. Gupta, I waited an hour after my appointment time, my second visit was OVER 2 hours past my appointment time and when I said something to the staff I was faced with blank stares and excuses. On 8/25/17 I had a UTI and my ketone level was 3+ and I was told to contact Dr Gupta ASAP. I had to leave a message because no one answered... today is 10/9/17 and I still haven't gotten a response. Horrible experience, and I'm currently looking for a new doctor. No professionalism
Ms Canvacholo Thank you for your review. I invite you to call our office and leave a message for me to call you back. Can you please advise who asked you to contact us ASAP. This review, in my humble opinion, is very unfair. We do not run a perfect practice but cannot be responsible for patients that have never been seen, have missed appts or have not been seen for months. Thank you again.

Front desk got her degree from a candy machine. She failed to get auths prior to our visit. Waited an hour for her to finally tell us the Dr is out of network. And didn't apologize for wasting our time, just closed her little window.
I do apologize for this confusion if this indeed occurred. We do have someone full time to verify benefits now. Wishing you good health.

One of the worst doctors I've ever been to. Knows absolutley nothing and just wants to waste your time. Treats patients like cash registers.
Please call the office to identify yourself and have me call you back personally. I am not sure who you are what transpired. But I am willing to talk about it and have a chance to improve.

I highly recommend Dr. Gupta, she is very caring, compassionate, and explained what I needed to do to make the changes in my life better as a Diabetic Type II patient. I have gone to her several times and have made the personal decision that she will be the endocrinologist of my choice. Her office staff is excellent, friendly and very thorough. I am very happy with her as my doctor
Thank you Victorina.
