Absolutely not. My PCP thinks I have a clotting disorder and sent me here to get further testing due to unexplained huge bruising over the last few months, along with dizziness and light headedness. First, he told me to go to my psychiatrist because I'm on too much. That is between my psych and I. I am happy with meds I am on. Showed him pics of all the bruising. Then said the bruising is from my dogs. I said my dogs don't jump on me. Then he said I'm kicking myself in my sleep because of RLS. RLS doesn't cause kicking. Then when I showed him new bruises that came up within the last day, he said "Why are you so pale? Do you not go outside because of your PTSD?" I was SO insulted. Even though I'm anemic and take vitamins including Iron, he said to not take it. When asked about my cycle, I pulled up my flo app and it shows I've been bleeding over a month. I was told testing would be a waste of time and resources b/c hes 100% positive they'll come back normal. SO rude and dismissive.

I have seen Dr. Paudel on 2 occasions. I have found him to be very kind and thorough. He spent ample time with me, did not make me feel rushed and explained everything to me. I found his bedside manner to be excellent.

Couldn't agree more with the reviews on here. No bedside manner, arrogant, noncaring, called my dad lazy, told him to suck it up and doesn't care to find a solution and then degraded me on how I am treating my dad as a daughter when he didn't even ask what all I've done. He doesn't care to find a solution to issues we are having and now my dad has given up all hope. I would never wish this man to be anyone's provider, even my own worse enemy!!

He is arrogant,poor bedside manner appears to NOT be aware of the patients medical history or why they are there. Very narcissistic & cold. I would NEVER recommend him to anyone nor will I go back. The staff however was very good, but stay away from him. As an RN myself for 30 years I definitely know Doctors! He seemed to be in a hurry as well. One visit was all it took & I had my medical info sent elsewhere.

I was referred to Dr. Paudel by my doctor because my bloodwork results were not coming out right. He is the worst doctor that I have ever been to. He has no bedside manners and even my doctor apologized for sending me to him. She said that she has had so many complaints on him that she will never send another patient to him.

I have waited a year after my brother's death to write this review, hoping that I had over-reacted. My brother saw Dr. Paudel as a new patient and complained to him of stomach pains. Rather than taking 5 minutes to examine him or even refer him to another physician, he told my brother that the cause was the chemo. Four weeks later, his intestine perforated, and Dr. Paudel never returned one of the hospital's several calls to him. He may be competent, but he seems to be completely uncaring.
