Dr. Deepak is a super nice doctor and takes his time to answer and ask you questions. I had my annual check up here. The only thing is, I’m not sure how to get my lab test results. But other thanthat I had a smooth experience checking in at the front desk.

The place I usually go to for pre-op stopped offering that service after I had scheduled to go a few days before my surgery. My regular doctor did not have any appointments open. Thus, I was recommended to ZocDoc by mysurgeons assistant. I found Dr. Sawlani was near by and had time open the next day. I specifically wrote in my request that I needed pre-op test results by Monday at noon. They accepted my appointment which in my mind means they can get the results to the hospital in time. That did not happen. I arrived on time and waited almost 20 minutes for the doctor to arrive for the day. He was kind, saw people quickly. Took vitals quickly and filled out my surgical forms hastily. (some of the information was wrong on the final report. He said it didn't matter if the details weren't accurate.) Then the doctor hands me my pre-op paper work to take home with me because, as he says, "he might loose it." No kidding?? I think he's kidding but he's not. The nurse gathered me to take the blood work. She works there only on Saturdays. This is NOT about her, she was quite good. She attempted to take my blood and found that the little tubes the blood goes in were expired. Sitting in the blood draw chair for quite some time I watched as the doctor called the pharmacy a few blocks away and said the nurse would come get the tubes. I waited in the chair until she returned with a few bottles in her hand. Is that even safe? Sterile? She took the blood and did the ekg and at the end of all of this they said I could get results on Tuesday afternoon. I pointed out my request and he said it takes longer. Okay, this is my fourth surgery in this area. I know the blood work takes less than 24 hours. It was first thing Saturday morning and I know the labs are working on the weekend because I always do this. So I go to leave. They ask for my co pay. The admin photo copies the front and back of my credit card. She says he'll run the card later from home. REALLLLLLY????? So I call on Monday to see if the blood work happens to be there. The hospital is threatening to cancel my surgery that I waited 2 1/2 years to be cleared for and two months to schedule. I call the office to see if its there. I get a beeper number. I beep. The doctor gets on the phone and scolds me for calling him on his day off. WOW! He then tells me to call the admin the next morning at a different office that she also works at and ask her to call the lab to forward the information. He then says she comes in at 3:00 to the local office and I can go there to get what I need from her. I call the other office the next morning. The kind lady on the phone says no, she isn't there. She works there on Monday not Tuesday. I tell her the problem. She tries to help. She calls the lab and asks them to forward the blood work with out the doctor seeing it. They say they did. The hospital doesn't have it, nor the paperwork he handed me and did not keep even a copy of. She calls me back and says if someone were in the other office they could fax the paper work. I tell her he gave it back to me. She tells me to fax it to the hospital so they can see that it is done. It explicitly says on the top that it must be faxed from a doctors office. I go to the UPS store and fax it. Perhaps she know more than I. By time I walk back home the phone is ringing. The hospital. Not only did the blood work not arrive, the paper work is suspicious because it was not received from a doctors office. Surgery cancelled. I go to the local office at 3, as the doctor said to. The admin is sitting in the dark behind her desk watching videos. She at first will not open the door for me. I told her the doctor said to come now so she lets me in. I tell her the situation and she says what do you want me to do. Fax the paper work properly? Call the lab and get the blood work in order? Call the hospital? I could think of many things, she could not. So I told her what the other kind lady said to do and guided her through what I thought should happen and requested the doctor call the hospital and try to straighten it out. Then she asked me to write it down for her. No kidding again! So I made a list. The blood work was sitting on the fax machine so I took a copy and made her make a copy of the initial paper work that was now suspicious. So the doc said the office opened at 3. He doesn't come in until 6. He can't even call the hospital offices then. The wouldn't even be there at that hour. I go to work and my husband comes by after work to check on the situation. I have no idea if the doctor ever called. The hospital calls on Wednesday to verify they had nothing and I am cancelled. This was the most unprofessional medical situation I have even seen. This guy works one day a week and follow up is non-existent. The only professional person here was the nurse who worked in another hospital during the week and did this as a side job. I highly DO NOT recommend this doctor to anyone who is serious about their medical care.

The office itself is very small, cramped up, very low light. It is like a hole in the wall, but the provider was very nice and really helped me out with my asthma and making sure I have it under control.One thing I did not like was the fact that the receptionist was the person taking the vitals as well and she kept running back and forth in between both jobs (that's how mistakes happen, just saying) but she was very nice. Overall it was a weirdly nice experience, at least for the first time being there.

He was easy to talk with but the surrounding and the state of the office was not trustworthy. The staff members were disorganized and all over the place. It was unclean and the "clinic" looked like a garage. He saw meafter an hour of waiting and I was on time for my appointment. I would recommend the doctor but if you have another choice, go there instead.

I really love this doctor, i have been trying to quit drinking for like 7 years, the moment he said dude stop boozing, I just quit, well atleast for a month. The best part is his hours are from 6:30 -8:30 tue thu and even sat and 2 minute walk from the 7 train. I think he has a certain doctor presence around him that u might have a chance of changing your lifestyle.

I came in for a sinus infection and received the care I needed. He was prompt and called in my prescription right away, I really appreciated that. The office wasn't the nicest but everything else was great. I would go back, hopefully I don't need to!

The wait wasn't long but when I finally got called by the doctor, he only saw me for less than 5 mins and said "come another day because Im in a rush". Why did I even bother making the appointment then?. I will change to another doctor of course. Very disappointed

Really dirty, cluttered, scary. Didn't have a credit card machine there and tried to make photo copies of my card to run it at home, which I refused and paid in cash instead. People there don't speak english very well andreceptionist had no idea what she was doing. She didn't know what to do with our insurance card. Maybe it was her first day or she was just filling in for someone. This place is really only for anyone who doesn't have insurance or, like, on the run from the cops and just wants to get treated hush-hush.

I felt like I went through a drive-thru doctor. Dr. Sawlani was very late the evening that I went to see him. He had a few patients waiting for him when he arrived over an hour late. He came into theexam room asked me a few quick questions and then ran out to see the next patient. In addition, the office is unfavorable. The is no privacy because walls in the exam rooms do not reach the ceiling. Everyone in the waiting area can hear your business.

I think he was cruel. He laughed and told me to get over my panic attacks, suggested that I abuse my anxiety medication, and sent me away without a doctor's note for my full time job (which I wouldn't have ifI was abusing my meds!) Now I have a cold, no instructions from this doctor, and no note that would allow me to stay home and rest tomorrow.

Dr. Sawiani spent the time required to listen and review my case in depth. He also explained my conditIon and treatment options in a way that I clearly understood. After talking with The doctor I felt much calmer and informed aboutthe severity and discomfort involved. The medication he prescribed is helping my symptoms very much.
