Ratings for Dr. Kedar K. Deshpande
I am trying to be fair on assessment but 1 Star is too much for all categories except for knowledge. Dr has knowledge he just has awful office and some people working for him. Takes months to get back to patients and this is with patients calling in. And when you call them on it they just get rid of patients that complain. Please don’t go here. They will give you hope and then keep you dangling for months. I stated process for pain pump in may. It was October when they said I could get the pump then tell me insurance is holdup. It wasn’t because I had been in constant contact with insurance. Dr office didn’t submit paperwork until last minute that they wanted. They should have sent it when I had successful trial but they didn’t. They don’t send it till I call reminding them hey I’m still here waiting then blame insurance which by the way had their paperwork done before date I was supposed to be in. Dr office wouldn’t get back to insurance people not other way around. Worst office I have been to and I’ve been to many in the last 25 years.
Worse doctor ( if he can even) be called that in my life !!!!!! Patients in waiting room sandwhiched in like sardines ! Some having no where to even sit down..... Very, very poor treatment of patients waiting, over 2 hour wait . Way over booked probably at least 15 patients in waiting room. Waiting and exam rooms in very poor condition, this Dr. should be ashamed of this environment and never even opened until properly set up, Patients getting other patients paperwork.....Would never recommend this M.D. to anyone, I was referred to him from my pcp ( primary care physician). Definitely not returning!!!!!!!! I will speak legal council to see what can be done .
This place is a joke. When I come in to follow up, I NEVER see the same staff or familiar faces. The turn around of employees there is ridiculous. It's no wonder that I feel like no one knows me or my condition when I speak to the assistants. I get to the clinic on time and the lady at the front desk is anything but pleasant when she checks min for my appointment. I wait 45 minutes to be called back and then I wait in the room for 30 more minutes before Dr. Deshpande even comes in. He barely says anything to me and then he moves on because apparently he is an hour behind. Not even 5 minutes with him, but my insurance statement shows a detailed visit and a huge charge! I'm fed up with this place and I'm going to find a new physician. I don't recommend this doctor to anyone
I know it sounds cliche’d but I really feel that Dr. Deshpande has given my life back to me. I have one of the nastier forms of Rheumatoid Arthritis and for years had to choose between pain and pills. The problem with pills is that there always seems to be too much or too little in your system. Dr. Deshpande has made it so that I just live a normal life, no pain and no buzz. Also, he doesn’t just tell me to not see other doctors for pain, he makes it possible. I recently had a bad reaction to something used during surgery by another doctor. Dr. Deshpande got me in that same day and helped me weather the situation rather than having to get something from the surgeon and hope it didn’t react badly with what I was already taking. The other thing that I really appreciate is the professionalism and helpfulness of his staff. The only downside for me is that it’s a long drive, but it’s more than worth it.
Dr Deshpande has always been a tremendous help to me and has always tried to find the best answer to solve my problem. He is always genuinely concerned with my well being and controlling the level of pain I have. His bedside manner is A number 1 and the treatments he has provided for me have always been to the best of his ability. He has provided me more help and relief than any other physician I have had. With the treatments he has provided to me, I have less pain now than I have had in 10 years.
I went to see Dr. Deshpande after having chronic back pain for 3 years. After a few months of injections from Dr Deshpande, I am now pain free and able to sleep at night. Dr Deshpande is the BEST and his staff is so nice and professional. No other doctor was able to help -only him. All the other doctors did was prescribe more pain meds but Dr Deshpande changed my life for the better and I can never thank him enough. I highly recommend Dr Deshpande to anyone who suffers from pain.
