dr Garg pushes only C-Pap machines because he says, that is what the insurance will pay for. i wanted a Bi-Pap because on overnight sleep test on a C-Pap=CONTINUOUS air flow, made exhaling very difficult + made me feel like i was drowning. attendant said you just have to get used to it. i learned there is a Bi-Pap, which stops airflow on the exhale. dr garg fought with me on the phone + said no, he only writes prescription for C-pap. i won the argument but he dropped me + said don't come back!

Very unprofessional. My husband and I were 1st time patient and made the appointment for 1:00 pm and when we got there were about 20 people in the waiting room. I asked if all the people were ahead of me and they said yes. I asked how can that be if he doctor not get into 1:00 and I have a 1:00 appointment wouldn’t I be the 1st appointment? They said they all have 1:00 appointments. It appears the doctor is booking as many patients as possible to make as much money as possible.

Dr. Vipin Garg is really good doctor with very practical and accurate diagnosis . He literally save me by accurate diagnosis of my PE.

1. If you've just recieved government assistance for insurance. Change your PCP as soon as possible. You're wasting your life here. 2. Time is money. You will wait a minimum of an hour and a half to be seen. Imagine the maximum. 3. You want to stay healthy? You're actually getting worse from not being able to be patient. 4. His staff is not aggressive or reliable enough for preauthorization so you will experience run-a-arounds. Meeting appointment that will need to be rescheduled.

The staff is not courteous. First visit wait was 2 1/2 hours and I was only able to see the nurse practitioner. Although, my primary care physician highly recommended him, I've yet to meet him. They must overbook appointments, office has been crowded every time I've been. I've had to wait to even get parking ticket validated or picking up sleep study machine. Awful place. As soon as I finish this process, I'll ask for my records and find another pulmonologist, if needed.

worst run office I have ever been to- the wait times are awful- over 1 hour- my husband was sked for 6 hour test- no meals after 9 pm previous day - he arrived 20 minutes early- no staff one other patient and the cleaning crew- the office started filling around 9- by 10:30 he had not been called- the receptionist advised there were 6 ahead of him- really?- a 9 am appointment - second to arrive and six people ahead of him - by 11 Am- he gave up-by the by- you do not see MD until after 5th visit

Dr Garg saved my life. I went to 6 doctors about my problem but only he found the real issue and gave me the right medication. He knows how to take care of a patient and that is the most important thing.
