Here's the positives. The nurse I had who prepped me for the doctor and reviewed all my medical information was AMAZING. Super nice reassuring and organized. Also the fact that Zoc Doc makes it so easy to make appointments. Here's the bad. The wait was Horrible! I got to the office 15 minutes before my appointment. Was given the usual sheet to fill out basic information while they reviewed my insurance. That was fine then I proceeded to wait for an HOUR AND 10 MINS before finally my name was called. I get in nurse reviews information. Then I wait another 25 MINS before he finally sees me. The appointment was just okay. It felt rushed (which I understand because he was waaay behind) and he promised to review the rest of my things at our next appt. So be it. I really just needed a Rx refilled. His availability is very limited on here so I call his office to see if there more appointment slots (there are) and set one up only to cancel me two days later.... so I'm probably looking for someone else
This is by far the most caring individual I have ever encountered his staff was warm and friendly and they gave me the attention and care I needed .. So glad I finally found a doctor who cared..
my appt. twice was cancelled and no reason given. I had this doctor in the hospital. I asked for one appt. til I could get a regular doctor, the appt. was confirmed by the office, then I got a call the next day cancelling with no reason given. If felt as if I had a deadly contagious disease, or did some horrible criminal thing. I am really hurt, and the doctor that two months ago that Dr. "Chugh gave me as referral, on my third appt., fifteen minutes before he was to arrive, his office called me and cancelled. I asked why. I coulldn't get an answer, so this seems to run in his circle. I cried for over an hour. what did I do?? carol m
Love the staff, very supportive, respectable, happy. Doctor Chugh is very straightforward, easy to understand, pleasant, and willing to answer any questions. I understand more about my injury, and am happy to have him continue to treat my current issues and enything else in the future. I have found my new doctor!
The Doctor himself accepts your appointment on ZocDoc, he then comes out upon arrival introduces himself and calls in his own patients. He is very thourough and compassionate. If your nervous about finding a doctor like I was, Dr. Chugh will put you at ease and is determined to find the cause of your problem. Mine was a complex thyroid issue and he immediately took the steps needed to determine. Great Doctor, Great Staff, I'm so happy I found him with ZocDoc
Dr. Chugh and his staff were very friendly and helpful. He addressed an issue of mine right away and recommended a wonderful specialist. I would recommend visiting Dr. Chugh's office to any new patient seeking a doctor.
I spent nearly 2 hours to hear things I Already knew.
Dr. Chugh was very excellent. His staff was friendly the office was clean. Just overall outstanding.....
