This is the worst doctor visit I ever had. I went in for immigration testing. The initial visit was okay and quick, but when I came at the scheduled time to pick up my result, I was told Dr. Venkat was not in the office and I had to wait for over 2 hours for him to come during holiday time. However, this was not it. I was told to give my health insurance information at the time of appointment even though this is not an insurance covered expense and I paid out of pocket all the fees. Then after 4 months of my appointment, I received a bill from a blood lab asking me for unpaid charges for blood test. In the bill, it also showed that my insurance also got charge for blood test done on my behalf. I called the lab and asked what happened. They told me, Dr. Venkat office submitted my blood test not as an immigration test which required only 4 items to be checked but as a full-blown regular blood test with over 10 items checked. I called Dr. Venkat office and they said they would take care of this. However, in March, I got a reminder from the lab that the charge was still pending. I had to contact Dr. Venkat office again to try to get this resolved. This is still an ongoing issue which I have no idea what happened.

When i walked in i said good morning and the ladies at the front desk didnt answer. But the other young lady was very friendly and kind, she came right away and helped me. I think she was the doctors assistant. I didnt wait long. Dr. Venkat was friendly and professional.

When I arrive the facility, I wasn't especially welcomed. After waiting for 25min, I went came to the counter, and then finally asked me the regular questions. After my consultation, it seems like they switched, because they became extremely nice, so it ended it up great. Don't sty on your first impression because everybody can have a low moment/mood. About the doctor, I think he was very professional. No chitchat, no BS, but this is question of personal matter. I really appreciated that he did all the exams himself, as a real doctor should do, you know the traditional way. I have another appointment scheduled in a week, ad if everything goes well, Dc Venkat will definitely be my general doctor.

He didn't clean his hands with hand sanitizer or put gloves on before taking blood (after writing with a pen at his desk) and I was thoroughly disturbed. I regret not putting a stop to it all. I'm not even sure why he took blood, given that I came in with Traveler's Diarrhea. And everyone I know that has ever had TD just received a prescription, no blood test necessary.

Shocked this guy had such solid ratings. He was miserable in my initial visit. Wouldn't speak to me at all... wound up ordering several tests I didn't request (costing far too much). Based on this experience, I'll be very skeptical of ZocDoc ratings going forward.

At the time of the appointment, Dr Venkat was stuck in traffic and arrived 35 minutes late. Additionally, the appointment time was double booked resulting in more waiting. He was cold and refused to call me with the results, forcing me to pay another office visit fee.

I never get right in on time for my appts. Im always waiting at least 30 mins. One time he was late and saw me waiting there and said he needed to eat his lunch. I was shocked. He made me wait even longer while he ate. I had an appt one time and instead of calling to tell me he was leaving the office so i could re schedule he had the door man tell me he was leaving and not saying when he would be back. He left me waiting in the office for an HOUR!!!!! Takes phone calls while you are with him. For example i was talking to him during MY appointment and he picked up and was talking to a patient about their STD. He just wants to get you out of the office. The reception is wonderful but the dr is not.

I have seen many doctors. But this had to my worst experience seeing a doctor. I was promised that I would get a call from the doctor to discuss my results. After one month, i had to reach out to the doctor to discuss. He did not even had the courtesy to call and discuss my results. On top of this, when I finally got in touch with after a month, he told me he doesn't discuss results on the phone. He wouldn't even tell me if everything was ok or not. Absolutely riduculous, both him and his assistant Darina are downright rude. I would not recommend anyone going and wasting their time to go see them. On top of this, he did a bunch of tests that I was even told prior and I just got my bill from my insurance company.
