I have been a patient of Dr. Purohit for over 20 years. He is very professional, considerate and genuinely concerned for his patients. He wants the best for his patients and will partner with great surgeons, and other specialists to make sure we get the best of care. He spends time as needed with every patient answering questions and explaining care and medications, a rare trait of many doctors these days. I feel I am a valued patient not just a number.

Unfortunately this practice still operates in pre-historic times and handles patient confidentiality terribly. I waited 1.5 hours, left and came back for lunch, and still had another 1 hour wait... definitely not coming back.

This is my second time visiting Dr. Purhoit as I thought I would give him a second chance The first time my wait was almost three hours I left before seeing the doctor because after a 45 minute wait the gracious assistant administrators informed me it could be at least two more hours before I saw the doctor A completely frustrating waste of my time!

Dr was knowledgable spent time explaining things. He explained the Meds he was prescribing and advised of possible side effects. Since I am hearing challenged and the Dr speaks very softly I was glad my husband was with me to help me maneuver questions and answer them correctly.

The manager of the office was most insensitive, rude, uncaring, and unprofessional. The office was so crowded there were no seats. The staff at the desk did not seem to be able to calculate the wait. I did have great amount of sympathy for the staff working at the front desk, as it was clear the manager intimidated them. Dr Purohit's office manager said that the wait (I waited for 4 hours) was unavoidable. She shrugged and told a man who, at that point was waiting for 3 hours, that if he did not like it he could go to the ER. This man explained to the manager that (he was upset at this point but not he was not out of control) he is missing his dialysis appointment; the manager responded that she would call the police. When I signed in I noticed that 3 patients the exact same time of my appointment. Dr Purohit is great but I cannot believe he is unaware of how his patients are treated. This baffles me. The office manager has to manage*the scheduling visit. If all the patients scheduled show up that day plus there are emergencies, the office staff needs to reschedule patients and to the best of their ability estimate the wait to see the doctor. *I have received a call to remind and confirm my schedule appointments with Dr Purohit.

I did not enjoy my experience here. While the staff was friendly and attentive, the wait time was about an hour from when I arrived. The doctor did not really listen to my concerns, nor did he make me feel comfortable. He asked me questions and examined me while accompanied by a teenage male, who was typing on the computer. I was not asked if this was okay, or even informed that he would be there. It was uncomfortable to answer some intimate questions with the doctor's demeanor and with the teenage male present. He was not very thorough either. Furthermore, the doctor's phone rang during my appointment and he answered it and then hung up as if it were just a telemarketer. I would understand if it had been an urgent medical call, but this was not the case and so I found it quite unprofessional. I would not recommend seeing this doctor.

Very unsatisfactory. The worst was that during both times, without asking to see whether or not I was comfortable with this, Dr. Purohit was accompanied by a male teenager during my visit with the doctor. During one of these visits I was instructed to remove my top and bra, while this boy, continuously texting someone, was in the room. When I asked if this happened to be a medical student or someone associated with the medical profession, I found out that he was - get this - their computer data assistant. I will not be back.

The doctor is wonderful, his staff on the other hand is NOT!! Very Very rude workers. You could hardly reach anyone on the phone and when you do you have to deal with employees attitude. To be completely honest, this place is not worth a visit with how the employees act. I usually don't write reviews but I definetly had to share my opinion!

I thought visit was terrible, sat in waiting room for 2-3 hours before getting checked, then another 30-40 minutes or so with doctor taking 10 minutes to ask 1 question while he went back to reading whatever book/index/reference/etc. and solved nothing for me. Staff was hard to understand as wel as rushing people in and out and not fully explaining questions. Please, take any advice if reviewing this, I never ever leave reviews but I felt the need to warn others so that they may avoid a 4 hour doctors visit to have little to nothing accomplished.

Dr. Purohit makes all the distress and anxiety of feeling sick all melt away. After three visits, I feel totally confident that I am going to get better, and soon! I feel better already. The staff is pleasant and very helpful, the location convenient, and the office clean and comfortable.
