    This is by far the worst experience I have had at a physician's office. They treated my father, the patient, with complete disregard of his well being and behaved in an atrocious manner that fell nothing short of vulgar. His office personnel was not only inefficient in retrieving his insurance information but failed in communication. When I contacted the office manner, Dr. Suresh's wife, she repeatedly stated that her and Dr. Suresh had nothing to do with office personnel'behavior.

    His staff was lazy about getting our referral. Alice said that she was put on hold for too long and did not want to wait to get the referral. She did not call us to let us know that she could not get the referral. So the day of our appointment, we could not be seen because of her irresponsibility and lack of care about her job. She was unwilling to be helpful and was even condescending. She said we were taking up her time and would have to hang up with us now. DO NOT SCHEDULE WITH DR. ANTONY!!!!
