Was feeling sick, found this office on zocdoc. When I was checking out the receptionist said that my health insurance provided a free annual checkup and asked if I wanted to schedule that. "Sure, if its free." Came back, had bloodwork done (they were upfront there would be a charge for that test), and then had to trek back down route 1 to get the results another day. Went to leave that appointment (where I received the results of the "free" checkup) and was told I had to pay. Apparently the "checkup" is free, but finding out the results cost?! If I had known that I'd have told them to email me or call me with the results. I have not gone back to this doctor, and thanks to this incident, have been even more turned off by the whole health care industry.

This is the third time I visit Dr. Bishwakarma. I love that I never really have a wait whenever I check in. He reviewed my medical history before my appointment and asked me how I was doing with certain issues sincemy last visit. I hadn’t eaten, so I had to come back to get blood work done at a later date, but I was, once again, seen right away and felt no discomfort during the process. Will definitely be returning again.

Dr.Dan Bishwakarma was nice and staff as well, but he started to get uncomfortable when I started asking him questions regarding my fathers case and called me “ Young and Unknowledgeable” it was insulting, just because I’m young it does not mean I am unknowledgeable.

He seemed knowledgeable. He asked lots of questions and gave me a thorough exam. He was good to call the script right in to the pharmacy so I could get it on the way home. The office was small, but nice and everyone was friendly.
