Ratings for Dr. Umesh K. Arora
WORST EXPERIENCE I HAVE EVER HAD WITH A DOCTOR!!! The office is unorganized, dirty and in complete chaos. I thought they were renovating it was so terrible. The doctor was condescending and ordered every test possible even though he told me that he thought I was completely healthy. The staff was sweet, but unbelievably overworked and at one point the doctor started arguing with one of the nurses and was talking to her in an unprofessional manner in front of all of the patients. The patients I spoke with who were waiting for tests to be done had been there minimum 4 hours some up to 6. The tests that were being run were being facilitated in a room that was separated by a cubicle wall and SHOWER CURTAIN RODS!!! You were able to hear the other patients who were getting seen in the same room! This doctor is obviously trying to work the system and is concerned with the quantity of patients he sees not the quality of service. I was unclear about some of results within my appointment and was not able to get a clear answer from the Nurses, so I approached him and he was rude and sarcastic with me. I would caution anyone who is thinking about seeing this doctor!
My mother was sent to him after she was having chest pains. We waited 45 minutes just for him to tell her she had two major heart attacks. He had stressed my mom so bad and after my grandma died of heart failure he proceeds to tell my mom she has to pay a whopping $2500 for him to run "tests". Her insurances didn't cover it which was weird because she receives tricare& United health. She than goes to the emergency room and they run the tests and come to find out, she never had any heart attacks and in fact has a strong good heart. He continues to call her, but after the scare and lie, we won't EVER go to his office again. I highly advise everyone not to go to him unless you're ready to be stressed and conned into believing his lies.
Doctor only cares about money! He orders every single test that he can bill and has no care if you have other appointments that day. The staff is overworked and his office is completely unorganized. There are charts everywhere and it's total chaos! Good bedside manner sometimes but only concerned about making money, not you.
Doctor order test not necessary. In it for the money not the patients. Get a second opinion. Other doctors would not cause the amount of stress/waste patients time and money. If you want good quality care go somewhere else. He has great bedside manner, but it is all a cover to his unnecessary prescribing of test and medicines.
This doctor is terrible. He is ALWAYS LATE and not just a little late, but VERY late. He thinks his time is more valuable than anyone else's time and thinks nothing of making you wait for hours and hours, each time you have an appointment. He greatly increases your blood pressure, which is ironic for a heart doctor. Also his billing office is a joke. They make a mess of your finances; never properly bill you. You have no idea how much money you owe at any time. His office staff tries to do the best they can under very trying circumstances. I felt sorry for them working for such a lame brained doctor. Run from this doctor. Do not go to him!!!
Just had our very first office visit with this Doctor. He was very polite,helpful & knowledgeable. That is where it stopped. You pay your co-pay before anyone even talks to you. Then staff was,not helpful,no communication,very unorganized,just didnt care. We had an appointment and we were there 8hrs to get testing done. No one even told us it would take this long. We were communicating with other patients to find out how much longer each of us had left. Privacy is a big concern, the staff talk to you about all your test in front of all the other patients. Very unprofessional... We had all our test done and now going for a catherization, but I am debating on getting a second opinion I left very uneasy and frustrated. The Doctor tried to ease our fears and apologiezed but just not sure, still might get a second opinion. If I had known all this I probably would have not chosen this doctors office. If you do choose to go here be prepared for long waits. Good Luck!
A very fine cardiologist, his patients adore him and most sites rate him 4.5 out of 5.0, only problem are the testing delays (wait time). He has been my doctor for over a year, extendeded my life by putting 4 stints in, 1 a week last June...doing fine now.
