Patient Comments (2)
Chicago, IL |
Dr. Vijay is one of the worst medical practitioners I have ever come into contact with. He and his staff are extremely unprofessional and unprepared, it makes you wonder how they were ever even given a license. Although we were promised the ability to contact him with questions following appointments, he ignored almost all of our calls (even in the case of an emergency), answering only once to lie that he was out of the country, and, "didn't give a damn because he was in Kenya." DO NOT USE HIM

The staff and the doctors in that facility if you want to call it are very unprofessional.
