My Dr's office unexpectedly closed and I was in the market for a new primary care dr. I am not too familiar with the area so I saw that this Dr's office was close by and gave it a shot. I love that the dr is very thorough and precise, seems very attentive to his patients. The only downside is that the office doesn't take credit/debit cards.

Yesterday I went to this Dr. because I have had bad leg pain for over two months, I have low back problems and needed a referral for an Orthopaedic since I had Orthopaedic procedures done in 2010. Dr. Pothiawala sent me blood work and a hip X-Ray even though I showed him an MRI of my low back. My wife question him of why didn't he referred me and what was the next step to follow and he didn't liked that. Next day day called my wife and discharged me as a patient and don't what me back.
Horrible dr and very rude! Told me he was to busy and had to come back for abother visit and i was scheduled as a new patient! Do not reccomend at all!
