The visit itself was quicker than the wait. If this service is available for making appointments, the time should be honoredor we should be notified of the wait time so we don't have to sit for an hour.

TERRIBLE STAFF!!! Multiples issues: -arrived at appointment early and was made to fill out all my info again even though I completed on zocdoc fully -staff (front desk and nurses) were incompetent. they literally didn't even spell my name correctlyon my intake form after I rewrote it so when i get into the nurse part of the exam they couldn't pull my info -they were training a nurse and she had ZERO idea what she was doing. she couldn't even enter in my medications so I showed her -the doctor was EXTREMELY thorough. ive been on the same medication for over 5 years yet she insisted on getting my old doctors info to "follow up" - yet I received the refill same day (no way she could have spoke with my old doctor) WASTE OF 10 MINUTES -I really like how thorough the doctor was so I decided I would try another shot with them. I know they open at 8am but zocdoc doesn't have appts until 9am so I called to try and get an 8am appointment for my sore throat. They said "oh you're sick you need to come today"...I cannot miss work and wanted an 8am appointment whenever they could. she said sorry we dont work like that. IN THAT CASE THIS SHOULD BE AN EMERGENCY ROOM. unbelievable.

She was quick to simply prescribe medication instead of listening to my concerns about my specific situation and seemed wholly unaware of my recent medical history even though I'd seen her several times before

I have been looking for a new PCP after a disappointing visit a few months ago with someone else, and I was very pleased to find Dr. Dhar! She was patient, listened to all of my concerns and was verythorough. She strikes me as a very kind and compassionate doctor. I will definitely see her again.

The time with the doctor and other health administrators was excellent. The doctor was patient, friendly, and fully committed to the physical. And the rest of the staff were courteous and efficient. The request to arrive 20 minutes early, followedby a wait of over 40 minutes after the appointment time before seeing anyone was not excellent. As this was my first visit here, I am hopeful that this is not normal.

She was very nice doctor. Her examination was very detailed as well. She is a very good listener to your concerns. The staff was nice as well, paperwork went through very quickly. I had to wait about 10-15 min. only whichis pretty good. At the end, she explains very well and what to do when at home. Very helpful.

The wait at this office is absolutely ridiculous and unacceptable. My appoinment was 9:45 and at 10:43, I still was not seen. Not only was I not seen, but when I went to ask how much longer my wait will be,I was advised another 20 to 30 minutes. This place only works if you have nothing better to do with your time. I think it's time to find someone new.

I appreciate them squeezing me in last minute. But had to wait more than an hour to get seen, then they didn't fax the one scrip I needed to the pharmacy, so I had to call them and go back to the pharmacy again.

I really like Dr. Dhar, but the office itself is old and somewhat off-putting. It could be freshened up to provide a cleaner and brighter appearance. I will continue to see her though, because bedside manner and timeliness are more important to me.

Dr. Dhar is an amazing physician. She really takes the time to listen to you, and she's not too quick to hand out antibiotics and other therapies that some doctors give out like candy, to the detriment of their patients. Shehas a wonderful, warm, empathetic and personable bedside manner and she is very available to her patients for concerns big and small. Can't recommend highly enough!

the wait time has been long for each visit. However Dr. Dhar is worth the wait. She is thorough, asks questions, takes time to know me, and addresses any concerns. I am never rushed, and she obviously cares very much abouther patients well being (the whole person, not just the symptom). I highly recommend her.
