Very difficult to schedule appointment with staff. Had to make appointment 3 months out and when we arrived for appointment advised that they left a message a few hours before on my cell that they cancelled appointment as Dr. Malhotra had a meeting. 2 other people came in to register and advised as I had been. Given new appointment for 7d later but told that could be cancelled also. Staff attempted to redirect to a Nurse Practitioner and not MD. Would never recommend this physician.
