No Dr. Monn..he was wonderful. Dr. Nevatia very long wait, staff is great get you into room in good time then you wait in room forever! He come in no introduction not even a hello. Sits on computer. He has very broken English and VERY hard to understand, and does not try to make sure you understand. I have been going to that practice for at least 10 years to see Dr. Monn, but I'm transferring my care as soon and if I get results from sleep study. Sleep study facility and staff amazing!

Dr,. Nevatia is extremely thorough in diagnosing and finding the right treatments for you. He does spend his time going over your records, comparing previous visits and tests, rather that then chatting me up on the weather. He is not timid in referring to other specialists, such as cardiologists, who can help with other problems that may arise.. Glad he has treated me for the last 7 years..

Queensbury, NY |
terrible -long wait; spent 5-6 minutes with me and just typed information I gave him into his computer; no follow-up and no help when I needed medical exam forms filled out; only interested in charging and collecting $
in New York |
Dr Nevatia is very thorough and his recommendations help a great deal.
in Glens Falls, NY |
Poor follow up with patients on results of sleep study. You will be billed by the office and by Glens Falls Hospital for services you weren't informed about ahead of time - this bill will be substantial. This includes the overnight sleep study - equipment you will pick up from the lab in their office! It is not their lab, which is why you get 2 bills. The office staff are either sleepy when you check in or rude if you call with a problem - even to the point of being combative and accusatory.
