Worst doctor's office, beware. Where to begin.. Dr. Bokhari himself seemed like a knowledgable doctor, except the wait times were over an hour and he rushes in and rushes out. So fast and brief in fact, that I had to ask the nurse still taking my vitals- was that the doctor? Wasn't happy with him, but needed to get the tests done so I could at least take it to a cardiologist who would take the time to figure out what was going on with me. He pulled the, "you're too young to have any heart problems" card which really irks me. Maybe he should talk to the patient and review their records before making those kinds of comments. Office staff is very incompetent, they make errors on scheduling and billing and you have to deal with it. First appointment I had scheduled was a piece of cake. All the ones thereafter- horrible. They say they will call you back in a week when you call to make an appointment. A WEEK to call you back to schedule an appointment. But they never call you back anyway, you have to keep calling every so often to try to get someone who can schedule, this person must be pretty elusive. Say you show up to your appt. that you finally get scheduled, they will give you every excuse as to why you suddenly can't be see . One of the excuses being, "we have new employees" as to why they fail to contact the patients regarding scheduling and billing issues until you show up. First they may lie like in my case, "We called and tried to tell you yesterday." No, actually I have the voicemail which was nothing in regards to the issue, not even a call us back sort of thing. Then they'll change their story a few times. I was frustrated and rightfully so. Want to know what the customer service is like? The office staff literally laughed about it. Clearly they don't understand customer service or why a patient may be upset because they just wasted their gas, time, babysitters, money, and could have made an appointment with a better doctor who doesn't employ untrained/unprofessional staff instead of waiting months for a very important appointment just to be told oops no. No concern for the patient, no trying to fix the situation. Also be aware that they do not have any sort of management- well, according to them when I asked to speak with a manager about the situation. The whole office seems fishy, I'm concerned that they have my personal information. Please avoid Dr. Bokhari's office, I hope I save some people the hassle and frustration they've caused my family on numerous occasions. There are many other cardiologist's offices out there who genuinely care about their patients, this isn't one of them.

During a regular visit in 2010 care, a carotid duplex solography was ordered which slowed 88% blockage in neck left side. I was subsenquently referred to Dr. Bokari for consultation. After investigating the pros and cons of neck surgery vs. a stent implany Dr. Bokahri successfully accomplished the implant procedure without any complication.Then in 2011, of an echocardiogram which revealed multiple blockages in my heart arteries. Again, after evaluating heart bypasss surgery vs. stent implanation, Dr. Bokhari implanted multiple stents in the heart. In 2011, as a result of my uncontrollable blood pressure Dr. Bokhar successfully implanted a stent in the right Kidney artery.All procedure have been extrly successful with very little post-op pain and with very rapid recovery. My asociation with Dr. Bokari and his efficient staff continues to be absoulutly impressive and haighly satisfying.
