Wait time too excessive (2+ hrs) with 3-4 appointments before mine running behind schedule

He talks over you when you have a question. Instead he likes to lecture you on your "condition" without conducting any tests. When a test was finally performed he wasn't even in the building. I wasn't happy with the test results,went to two other doctors who had different opinions, and then realized this doctor misdiagnosed me. Please STAY AWAY. He lacks professionalism, told me I was fine, and then was told by two other doctors that I had pneumonia.

Dr. Badlani was somewhat helpful but the receptionists are terrible horrible and all need to be fired. If you have to see a specialist in this building good luck. The physician assistant who administered the test was a nice guy though.But the ladies in the front all need to be fired immediately. Incredibly disorganized and haughty with no manners and poor English command.

Dr. Badlani was very comprehensive in his assessment and gave very thorough recommendations. The only down side to this appointment was that I had to wait 45 minutes to be seen.

The first time I waited for over an hour for a pre-travel checkin. The second time I waited for almost 2 hours and then they reported they did not have the shot I was scheduled for. The third and fourth timesI was seen right away and was pretty easy. I liked Dr. Badlani a lot and appreciated that he answered my questions. I also was very impressed with the PA who I saw. Overall, if you are willing to have a potentially long wait time, he is worth it.

I think Dr. Badlani is an excellent doctor, takes time and consideration with his patients. Only negative would be the long wait time, over an hour.

It was good. The doctor is professional and available to answer any questions. He doesn't seem to rush to leave and meet with other patients. However, receptionists are a bit rude.

Dr. Badlani is great Doctor . However, the office staff is incredibly disrespectful, rude and unprofessional. I had to change the dr. Badlani to another doctor, because one of the ladies at the front desk was rude to me. I justfeel sorry for the employers, and also dr.Badlani, their business can be ruined so easily just because they hired wrong people.
