Patient Reviews

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

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
