What People Say About Dr. Vidhu Paliwal, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

October 2017, I saw Dr. Paliwal. I waited 20 minutes, and then he left in the middle of my appointment to see someone in the ER. I spent 15 minutes with him. He ordered tests. He sent in the wrong codes and the tests were denied. I finally got testing December 2017. I got results 1/17/18, after calling numerous times. He called and said the tests were "basically" fine and hung up. I received a bill for $3995.50 for a stress test, a 24 heart monitor and his visit. Terrible EXPENSIVE care.

I will not be returning to see this doctor. My first and only visit with him he told me I should have surgery for weight loss. Not once did he suggest diet or exercise. He spoke down to me like he was better than me. Also...I had to have an over night blood oxygen test done. It took me two months and several phone calls to get the result from that test. According to Dr. Paliwal I have significant sleep apnea and he will refer me to a sleep lab. He never sent that referral to the lab.
