Patient Comments (2)
Rosamond, CA |
My wife had an abdominal wall repair (thought to be a hernia until surgery) with Dr. Mahendra at Antelope Valley Hospital. Once we had to reschedule (3 days max). 3 times since then she has been rescheduled and it has now been 7 weeks without a follow-up. When asked they denied that she had even been rescheduled and were argumentative on the phone. Very dismissive of our concerns as well as argumentative.
Los Angeles, CA |
No follow up at the actual surgery institute. The office couldn't get me in for 3 weeks after. Tried to schedule my follow up no call back when I left messages also very rude and dismissive. When I got to the office he didn't even show up on time for work he showed up 30 minutes after my appointment and there were people even scheduled before me. His front desk staff is very very rude and doesn't give any explanation of wait expectation or explanation except the Dr just showed up. Worst Surgeon.
