Patient Comments (6)
Sarasota, FL |
Inadequate customer service, poor beside manner, ineffective communicator and poor control over his front office staff and policies. Tends to make decisions regarding rules on the fly. He will, however, bill you and your insurance company without hesitation. If you're fond of spending an unnecessary amount of time in his waiting room only to be told to go to the Health Department for your needs, this is the doctor for you. Good luck with that.
Novi, MI |
The doctor is great but his office staff aren't. We are continuing to be charged for a bill that was paid and we even gave them proof of the payment including the cleared payment. When you bring this up to the person who handles the billing- she just hangs up on you. Very, very poor service which is too bad as the doctor is good but it isn't worth the stress of dealing with the office staff.
Myakka City, FL |
His wife and himself are wonderful kind doctors. The office help is the worst. The doctors will prescribe some thing and the stupid girls in the front refuse to call for prior authorization. I will never go back

Dr. Soordal Prakash is extremely knowledgeable and outstanding at diagnosis. For example, his diagnosis of severe arm pain of being a pinched nerve and not a neck problem was dead on and his treatment worked without needing more severe treatments. He has removed skin cancers on my legs quickly and effectively. He and his wife, Dr. Shanthi Prakash are a very effective team. She is the most compassionate doctor I have ever met. btw, their nurse always tests my bp. I doubt the negative reviewer

Basic physical did NOT include blood pressure or temp reading. I had a severe skin rash. This man did not even look at my skin or ask me to open my shirt or show him the rash which covers my entire body from neck to ankle. Told him I had positive HepC test but no symptoms. He had an assistant palpitate my liver. The doctor himself did not lay a hand upon me. It was when his trainee poked me they noticed the rash for which zero concern was expressed. Prescribed zero medicine for rash. Awful.
