When discussing my previously diagnosed social anxiety disorder with him, he told me that "everyone is born shy, some people just deal with it better." Very condescending and dismissive of a legitimate issue he's supposed to be knowledgeable about.

I enjoy the experience with all the staff, the ease of obtaining an appointment, the expertise of the manager with insurance. I highly recommend the practice, I personally work with Dr. Bajwa and Rachel Macko.

Started seeing Dr. Bawja when my other provider (who was wonderful) left the practice. Dr. is condescending and wouldn't even make eye contact with me. Was unwilling to discuss treatments/solutions to my diagnosis and simply wanted me to add a very expensive (prohibitively expensive) medication to my regime. Have waited upwards of an hour in the waiting room before. Was once kept waiting for an appointment while he had staff meeting. Office manager is very rude.

I waited for over an hour and still was not called back. When I came out of the waiting room I see Dr. Bajwa in his office talking to his son!! I mean are you kidding me, you already have me waiting an hour and the middle of my work day! No respect for patient's time, which in turn means to me, not a good medical representative to serve people who are there for mental health. Just rude and unprofessional, will never go back there!

I have been a paitient for over ten years and was turned over to collections for a missed appointment i didnt even realize I had. I have had a mixed experience over the years, but have had it. I have recommended several patients to him (regrettably), and the thanks I get is to turn my account over to collections for 60 bucks. The staff is ever changing with the exception of the office manager who has been there for years. I'm sure that most of his patients would agree that she is extremely rude

New patient, front desk staff was great. Waited 2.5 hours, never saw him, but watched drug reps go through. Finally asked to speak with the office manager, I heard her tell the receptionist to say she wasn't there! Office Manager tried to claim it was an emergency. When I asked about the drug rep, she had nothing left to say but sorry..This is apparently normal practice!
Wake Forest, NC |
Would NOT recommend this practice. Rude office manager. States she will call back and never does. Physician is the worst. Therapists are mediocre.
in Raleigh, NC |
Dr. Bajwa is so arrogant that when offered a release to obtain medical records from the doctor who had successfully treated me for 4 years he said he didn't need it. He is not forthcoming with his patients about the specific types of medications, and refused to answer my direct question abour rhe medication. This resuslted in a prescription for a drug which was dangerous for me and documeneted in my medical records. This doctor is not someone I would trust.
