I was told my condition needed to be treated with haste. I saw two other Dr.s and both were baffled as to why any Dr. would say that. Not ok.

Did not feel welcomed when greeted. He was very quick with the examination and was not thorough. Did not bother to look closer at my issues, rather glanced at it. His suggestions were not helpful. Will not repeat. Front office staffswere also not very organized with paperwork which was frustrating.

Dr. Bandi is not responsive to patient questions and prefers to waste time charging for office visits not relevant to patient care. I couldn't get a simple response about what next steps are for a month and eventually just gave up.I work in healtcare quality and process improvement consulting. The practice is simply trying to get as much money through high volume as possible.

Dr Bandi seems very knowledgeable, but he was in a hurry and especially that our native language isn't English we needed more specifications about the diagnoses and the treatment, but even after we asked he answered in a hurry.

Dr. Bandi was great. I Highly recommend him. The only little issue is that administrative assistants at the clinic could benefit from customer service training. Otherwise D Bandi was great!

Dr. Bandi was very proficient, answered to all my worries with a smile and quite to-the-point. However his Office had a mix-up with my appointment as they apparently out-of-sync with my Zoc-doc's appointment system. All ended well as Dr. Bandi kept up his appointed time (thru Zocdoc) with me.

Came in not knowing what was going on. Doctor said "I don't know". Did not offer much relief. Never called me with my CT results, so I had to go by and get my own report only to find that Ido have an issue that needs to be tended to. Very frustrating to spend all this money to be told nothing and have no follow up.
