I saw her daughter last year around july and she gave and order for my mammogram but I never schedule the appointment until this year, I went to her office to get a copy for the mammogram, the front desk lady was busy, she was there and ask to me what am I need, I told her I just need a copy for the mammogram, she printed the copy and gave to me, couple weeks after I receive a explanation of payment from my insurance! she billed out my insurance for saw me through the window!!! MONEY MAKER!!!!

Please don't go to this doctor. Even if because of your insurance try another dr. Vijaya n this both work together in same clinic and if you took appointment of this dr her mother Vijaya will check you. Who's horrible lady, only they care about is money the copayment. She knows my blighted ovum at 6 weeks but hide from us. And suddenly on week 8 convinced us to do D&C told us bleeding will too much. But if she told me before there is chance we can use tablet. Also she's too rude. And swati told

This doctor's office is a disorganized mess. I saw both doctors during my time there and was very dissatisfied with the care I received. They could not explain my recurrent problem and just shrugged their shoulders at me but ordered an expensive test without informing me it would be a $450 bill! Had to fight to get them to just accept my copay and not charge me for the visit. The office administration was consistently a disorganized confusing mess. Lack of health insurance operations.

I am very disappointed. The doctor scheduled me for a c section at 730 I had to arrive 2hrs before for prepping. I live 30-40 min away from the hospital so I was up by 4am and arrived at the hospital at 5:20 hospital staff was very nice and friendly 7:30 came around and the doctor still hadn't arrived about 20 min later one of the nurses tells me that the doctor wouldn't arrive until 1130 because she got caught up at her office so I have to wait 6hrs for her! Totally unprofessional

Terrible! Terrible! Terrible!!! Horrible experience with the staff as well as the doctor. They had the insurance information at the time when appointment was made days prior. The day prior to the appointment they called and took the insurance information again. On the day of the appointment they had not yet contacted the insurance company, so they wanted us to pay out of pocket if we wanted to be seen or wait until they contacted the insurance company, which could take hours they said. Be Ware!
