IF YOU HAVE ANY SELF RESPECT FOR YOURSELF AND THINK YOUR TIME IS IMPORTANT DO NOT GO SEE THIS DOCTOR AS SHE DOESN'T HAVE ANY RESPECT FOR YOU OR YOUR TIME! I booked the appointment via ZocDoc which was for 3 weeks later. They had check in paperwork available on ZocDoc so you wouldn't have to fill anything out when you show up for your appointment. I get a call a few days later by one of the staff saying they needed a little bit more information (insurance..medical history...allergies...etc) I asked her were all the other documents good to go or were there any other docs I need to fill out, she replied "No, everything is in order"! Day of the appointment: I show up at 9:00 am for my appointment of 9:20 am. Greeted by the staff saying have a seat, asked for my ID and insurance card and handed me 10 pages to fill out repetitive information. I informed her I have already filled these out when I booked the appointment. She replied hmm some of these are different so just start on them while I look for the documents. (Do you not check before the patient shows up?) I still understand that I do not know how it works as I haven't been to the doctors office in while so I continue to fill out the pages. A page and a half into me filling them out, she stops me saying they already have it but still need some other information (insurance...medical history, allergies....etc) remember the phone call I mentioned earlier! So I fill out those documents while reminding her that these documents should be good as well. After filling them all out by 9:15 am. The staff member takes me back checks my weight and height and then takes me to the exam room, I look at the time its 9:20am, my appointment time, I'm like this is good! Now I forgot to mention from 9:00am to 9:20am, I was the only patient in the office so no one else other than the staff and the doctor. It is now 9:50 am and I still haven't seen the doctor although while sitting in the exam room for 30 minutes I did hear women laughing/talking including one of voice of the doctor because you can clearly differentiate her voice due to her accent. She finally shows up at 9:55 am saying hi! how can I help you? At this point I just give her second while not responding and just smiling, I guess I was waiting for her to say sorry for the wait or the delay, or something to acknowledge my wait but she doesn't so I tell her "unfortunately you can't help me anymore as it's been 35 minutes since I've been waiting in this room and my time is important to me." To which she replies "Ok bye" as I walked out the door. The staff member asked if I needed to reschedule thinking I had to rush out I replied No, and after explanation of my experience, she apologized for the doctors behavior and the experience which is when I left. Got in my car and started writing this review. SO IF YOU HAVE ANY SELF RESPECT FOR YOURSELF AND THINK YOUR TIME IS IMPORTANT DO NOT GO SEE THIS DOCTOR AS SHE DOESN'T HAVE ANY RESPECT FOR YOU OR YOUR TIME!

I have never been more disappointed with a doctor visit as I was when seeing Dr. Nika Jani! Don't get me wrong but the rest of the staff may seem nice enough but Dr. Nika Jani was rude and unethical in my opinion. The only reason I scheduled an appointment there was because I needed to establish a primary care physician and get a physical. Upon meeting Dr. Jani and talking for about 5 mins regarding my medical history and desire to get a physical and some lab work to test my blood levels she informed me that there would be no time to get a physical that day and I would have to come back later to do get a physical and lab work and that instead I would be billed for a "sick visit". I told her the reason that I scheduled the appointment and got pre-approval from the receptionist was to set up a primary care physician to get a physical and lab work not to come in for a sick visit. Dr. Jani said that this would just be a "meet and great" and even though there would be no physical or lab work provided that day I would be billed for a "sick visit" and then have to come back to get the originally scheduled physical and lab work... What a scam! There were no other patients waiting in the reception room and this appointment was first thing in the morning when they opened. There was definitely time for a physical and lab work but she either did not want me as a patient because I did not come in for her "medical weight loss" treatment or just tried to scam me an my insurance for more money. Dr. Jani ended up saying that if I was not fine coming back another day for the physical that she could not help me and walked out of the room. My advise don't go here unless you want to be one of her "medical weight loss" patients because otherwise she does not have time for you!!!

I'm surprised by the low reviews for this healthcare provider. I took my Mom here for a PCP appointment because her regular PCP restricted their hours to only two days a week and wasn't available on short notice. Dr. Niki Jani seems to be the only doctor at this location, unlike other healthcare providers in the area that are grouped together. That can be a plus for most people since when you schedule an appointment, you are guaranteed to see the actual doctor and the same provider each time. The online appointment feature is very convenient and she does offer limited Saturday hours. The building is very conveniently located next to the Long & Foster Realtor office and is very clean and modern. Exam rooms are nicely sized. This provider seems to emphasize weight loss consultations, but she is an internal medicine doctor so you can use her as your PCP. Receptionists and nurses were very friendly. Wait times were average, about 10-15 minutes. The nurses and Dr. Jani were very thorough in asking questions and establishing a medical history. I thought Dr. Jani had an excellent bedside manner. Unlike the other review, I felt she did take the time to listen to us and discuss any concerns. So far the only con for this provider is that there is no on-site lab. This means you have to go to a different location (e.g. LabCorp) to get bloodwork done. They can do urine analysis on site, but not bloodwork. LabCorp does take both walk-ins and scheduled appointments, but it's just inconvenient to have to go to a different location and wait for service.
