Patient Reviews

October 06, 2021
Great bedside manner!
October 05, 2021
The provider is good. The staff is good. The problem is, you're overcrowded it's small and you have a lot more patients than you did before. So you need to expand the office or the facility so the provider can be able to deal with all these patients. I was amazed at how many people were there while I was there. So you need to get a larger room for this particular need it's getting where the need is greater now and all of us noticed that I mean, I guess we're all having problems in the same manner.So please do something to help the provider. Do probably a lot better. On the circumstances so he did the best he could. The staff was actually act excellent, but the facilities is overcrowded.

Dr. "A" was very helpful in following a proper diet and use of my medications.
September 28, 2021
Dr. Ambegaonkar office, run, smooth and efficient. They're very very well trained there and everybody knows their place and what they need to do and they're very good at what they do. Thank you.
September 28, 2021
Everything was fine, doctors, nurse's, receptionist the only thing is the time the time frame was very long we were in there an hour, we were waiting 45 minutes to see the doctor outside in the waiting room and maybe 25 to 30 minutes to see the doctor that's the only thing, the wait time in the reception area thank you and have a wonderful day.
September 27, 2021

He is a very good Doctor.
September 10, 2021
Yes. Definitely, this doctor is very good. I recommend them to not only my family, friends, everybody. He is such a wonderful doctor. He explains everything and he asked if we have any questions, or he answers everything. His bedside manners are awesome. I don't know how to say more about him. He's an excellent doctor. I'm happy that I found him.
September 03, 2021
Dr A is a great Cardiologist who cares about his patients . It's a pleasure seeing him and knowing he cares and explains everything.
September 01, 2021
All the doctors that I go see at Presbyterian, which is primary care physician cardiologist. A couple of more.They listened, the extremely smart in what they do but I believe they sort of rushed. So I have the write my questions down all the time, and I believe you had too many patients maybe or maybe they're overworked. I don't know. But this, the only thing that I had to say about that. The time they spent with you. You seem to be in a rush all the time. All of them. So, otherwise, I'm extremely happy with the hospital the care
August 25, 2021
Very helpful and courteous!??
August 20, 2021
Dr. A is my favorite doctor to see with my heart condition. He is the best doctor and I'm so blessed that I have him as my cardiologist. I trust him fully.
August 20, 2021
Just ok good. Appt 9:30 AM Was seen at 10:30AM. Got out at 10:45 AM. Had another appt at 10:30 which I was late for. Not cool!!
August 04, 2021
Always the best care service around??
August 03, 2021
Dr. A and the entire staff in the Cardio unit are great.
July 30, 2021
The staff made me feel calm. I wish Dr A was my primary doctor.
July 30, 2021
Dr. A did my angioplasty and I am doing fine. I find him personable and efficient. Already made my next appointment.
July 28, 2021
Thank You!
July 20, 2021
Had to wait almost an hour past my appointment time to get to the exam room. When I complained when checking out I was told that the only way to be seen at your appointment time was to book the first appointment of the day. This is NOT acceptable, if I was an hour late I would be turned away and charged for a missed appointment. At another PIH location it was an hour and a half before being put in the exam room after another 20 minutes I left. My time is certainly not as valuable as the doctors but patients are certainly owed the truth about waiting times. Shame on PIH!
July 19, 2021
For being my first time, at this at this doctor's office I was very satisfied. Everybody was very nice and maybe have the patience with me me, because at times being that I'm a little bit older. I needed to have repetition what I said and everybody was letting patient at all with me. So I really appreciate everything. Yes definitely very good service. I only say some of it wasn't so, it was not her fault, because my family has other insurance and cannot go to to the Presbyterian Hospital. But I'm very satisfied. Thank you so much.
July 13, 2021
Dr. Ambegaonkar and his staff were very courteous, competent and efficient.
July 12, 2021
They were all very polite, treated you with respect and I would not change my doctor. I stay with them.
July 09, 2021
The parking situation at PIH has become a nightmare. People continue to struggle with the paid parking. Especially older people and non-english speakers. They can't figure out the payment at the kiosks or especially the exist gates. I don't mind paying to park but you need to use some of that money you are collecting to have an attendant at the gate to help these people get out of the parking lot. I waited in line nearly 30 minutes the other day to get out.
July 07, 2021
Arrived at 8:30 am, as scheduled, waited 30 minutes to go to exam room, waited another 30 minutes for the doctor to arrive, way too long.
July 07, 2021
Dr A is a great Dr, took very good care of my husband before he passed and now taking very good care of me.
July 06, 2021
I'm very happy with Dr A. He is a very caring doctor And a good doctor..
July 02, 2021
It's always a pleasure to visit Dr. Ambegaonkar's office. He answers all my questions and his staff is always courteous and helpful.
June 30, 2021
Yes, he is a very good doctor. I would recommend him to anyone in my family. Thank you.
June 30, 2021
It was my first time in years I had to wait for a long time,I don't like that at all!
June 29, 2021
Everything was satisfactory.
June 29, 2021
Hi great visit was a little bit long, they did have a lot of appointments, that they had to but over all it was a good experience.
June 15, 2021
Hi. Just wanted to make a comment that our wait in the waiting room was over an hour, and then another 30 minutes in the exam room, and then our physician saw my mother for probably ... probably ... maybe 7 Minutes, 8 minutes tops. So, just wanted to make that comment. It would be good not to have to wait so long for an appointment. Maybe schedule appointments for the ... enough ... enough time for each patient. Thank you.
June 15, 2021
The scheduling is terrible. You take a long time. It has nothing to do with the staff and necessarily, the personnel there. It's just the scheduling somebody needs to answer the phone with in a timely manner, like, 2 or 3 minutes. They don't do that. Okay, thank you.
June 11, 2021
Was very easy and clear
June 07, 2021
Had to wait in the lobby for an hour before seeing the doctor. But It wasn't terrible, but it was the first time that ever happened. Thank you.
June 02, 2021
I was disappointed with the long wait once I was finally shown into an examining room. I had a 10:30 appoint. but wasn't seen until about 11:45. I really like Dr. A and wasn't able to see him for 2 yrs., but this really was unfortunate.
May 26, 2021
Dr. A is a great doctor! He is genuinely concerned for his patients! I am so pleased with him and would definitely recommend him to others.
May 26, 2021
I had to wait 6 months for the appointment.
May 21, 2021
Just that it was very shirt appt.
May 17, 2021
Always a good experience at Dr. A's office.
May 14, 2021
This was my first time seeing a cardiologist... I was very nervous...Dr A took his time to listen to my concerns... read my history and explained the test being recommended.
May 14, 2021
Dr. A gave me peace of mind with his explanation of how the procedure will be done as well as the risks. I'm confident it will be a success.
May 12, 2021
The assistant recorded my weight incorrectly, it looked like I lost 30 pounds when I had not.
May 12, 2021
As always professional and friendly.
May 11, 2021
Dr A's office staff was very nice and he was delightful. He listened, he cared, he repeated back what I said he understood what I was saying and he provided the help that I needed and he's still providing the help that I need so I am delighted.
May 05, 2021
It was a short factual visit
May 04, 2021
I had an excellent experience at the provider office the staff was a well trained and that's it.
May 03, 2021
A friendly, trustworthy care provider. Highly recommended!
April 27, 2021
I was happy to see him it's just I had to wait over an hour to see him I know he's really busy but cut down the time waiting would be better
April 27, 2021
This whole office is very unprofessional. Doctor was very bad and seemed like I was putting him out of his way
April 23, 2021
You attend very well, they treated me very well. The visits I made are very good and very professional.
April 20, 2021
The doctor was very very, very, very, very professional and he answered all my questions and I left there feeling very at ease knowing that he had made recommendations that satisfied me completely.
April 20, 2021
He's a great doctor
April 19, 2021
Yeah, as far as I'm concern. You did everything, perfect. I'm always talking about the hospital. I notice number one in the nation and it is great. There's nothing. There's nothing I can say about anybody there. Even the people that clean your room are all super nice.
April 19, 2021
I feel safe with the Dr. He listens and is able to address my needs. He is'nt trying to push an agenda. He is looking at my health based on my needs.
April 19, 2021
The parking lot payment process needs much improvement!!!! There was a huge line to leave. Very inconvenient and time consuming!
April 16, 2021
First time meeting with Dr. A. Felt comfortable and trusted what he had to say.
April 16, 2021
Excellent
April 16, 2021
He is the best!
April 13, 2021
HE. IS. EXELAND. DR. GOD. BPLES HIME
April 12, 2021
Doctor asked questions he already knew the answers to. He was reading my primary physicians notes as I answered. Doctor visit felt like an interrogation, not a positive experience at all. Very arrogant. I left feeling very upset at the doctors interview methods. It felt very much like a police interview where I had to prove innocent my condition.
April 12, 2021
Everything went very well, very well, very good specialist, and I am very grateful to everyone there, everything went well, thank you.
April 06, 2021
Good Doctor, like and trust him.
April 06, 2021
I been with DR. A for several years & he along with his Staff have monitored my heart with Care, Respect & Genuine Concern. Dr A is Wonderful Doctor has not let me down yet which means alot! Thx for this opportunity.
April 06, 2021
I've been seeing him for years and looks at me when I talk, not the computer.
April 05, 2021
Office was backed up.
April 05, 2021
It is always a pleasure to see Dr. A he is so kind, he listens, very pleasant , shows concern, I trust him!!!!
March 26, 2021
Dr. A is very good about taking time to explain things in a way I could understand
March 26, 2021
It is sad that this providers office seems to possibly overbook appointments. I spent one and one half hours waiting for a fifteen minute time visit with the doctor. At my last visit, I recall waiting at least this long and was getting ready to leave without seeing the provider, when he suddenly appeared! I don't know how or why this happens but it is not the first time I have had this negative experience. The staff seems very competent and professional and the provider is complete and thorough. Perhaps someone could review the operation for this office and make recommendations to reduce patient wait time. I don't find specific fault with either the provider or the staff but the wait time needs to be addressed. Patients should not be expected to wait in excess of an hour. At my age, I don't have an hour or more to waste sitting in a waiting room. :-(
March 24, 2021
Dr. Ambegaonkar is a stellar Cardiovascular physician and I highly recommend him. PIH is lucky to have him.
March 22, 2021
We waited a very long time to be called in and the waiting room over flowing with patients.
March 19, 2021
Very easy to talk to. He listens and responds to questions.
March 15, 2021
Drs and staff are very well informed a good customer service
March 15, 2021
Office staff very polite, and helpful. Dr A is fantastic, really cares about everyone and listens to everything you have to say.
March 15, 2021
My only problem was that it took 6 weeks to get an appointment; by the time I was seen the issue had resolved itself and recommended tests were no longer needed.
March 15, 2021
He had no patience dealing with an elder and I was spoken to as if I was 20 years younger. Dr showed signs of being irritated of the delay to my reactions and not understanding him. He is not a good doctor for the senior population. I have no desire to have another visit
March 15, 2021
Very organized and kind office. Doctor took alot of time with me.
March 15, 2021
Great experience
March 12, 2021
He took the time to help clarify a new medical concern, and the pros and cons of treatments involved
March 10, 2021
Dr. A is a cardiologist; I'm a cardiologist patient and lab results were all positive. Life is good. Dr. A and his staff are very personable and upbeat. There were a lot of patience on the day of my visit. I'm glad I'm doing well.
March 10, 2021
My ... my doctor was excellent, and I've had him several times and we get along quite nicely together. Thank you.

February 17, 2021
Everything's fine.
February 16, 2021
It was a productive visit. Fairly routine.

Excellent ! Dr A is excellent. Staff is very friendly and professional.
February 09, 2021
Always a pleasure to go here for my medical needs
February 08, 2021
Hi, I was very, very happy with the nurse that helped me. She did an EKG. I was very nervous, and at the end she put me at ease. So, I was very happy with that. Very, very professional.
February 08, 2021
Like the doctor very much. He's a good doctor, but had to wait 50 minutes to see him.
February 08, 2021
I have always been treated well when going here.
February 03, 2021
Dr. A has been very nice doctor. I've been going to him for quite a few years and I've been very pleased with him and he listens to me and he's courteous and I've been very pleased with him. So I'm I'm happy that and he's always willing to go along with what I want to do or don't want to do so, I think he's a very nice doctor.
February 02, 2021
It was for the first time, need more time to reply for definite answers. About 10(?)years ago I was briefly his patient (you might still have my chart as your PIH patient).
January 27, 2021
Nothing much just that he did and always listened to me is as almost all the doctor's with PIH Whittier.
January 26, 2021
I was very satisfied with the experience attending this appointment with everyone including the receptionist and the doctor. Thank you so much.
January 26, 2021
Dr. A is very good at describing the balance in my needs. He is exactly what I expect from a cardiologist and more. The office staff is very upbeat and alert to your presence. Great staff.
January 19, 2021
I felt very rushed and a feeling that he didn't really care.
January 15, 2021
Dr. A has been my cardiologist since my heart attack. I think he is the best
January 13, 2021
The doctor treated me very well when I spoke here and listened to everything I said and gave me answers to everything I asked.
January 13, 2021
I did not go to the office. It was to be a virtual appointment, but he could see me and I could not see him after several tries. We talked on the phone and everything was fine. I plan to go to his office next time because this was the second virtual appointment.
January 13, 2021
Dr A I was asked before leaving the room, "do you have any questions of me ?" I'm totally confident in his care
January 13, 2021
The reception staff is very friendly and kind to patients and quick, however my only concern is that the staff, the reception staff did seem to get into some sort of disagreement with each other and while they spoke to each other with respect it was so loud and the conversation/disagreement went on for so long that it made me uncomfortable. I could hear them arguing in the waiting room as could everybody else and I just feel like that conversation should've been taken elsewhere or done at a different time because even though they spoke to each other with respect you could tell that they were just really frustrated and they weren't coming to an agreement. I just went on for quite some time and I didn't think that was professional
December 14, 2020
Dr. A is awesome!!
December 02, 2020
I love the honesty that he gives me.
December 01, 2020
Very kind and compassionate Dr
