Patient Reviews

October 06, 2021
I had to wait for the authorization papers to be seen by the doctor and that the only part that I had that I was dissatisfied with.
October 06, 2021
Dr Dholaria provided excellent care and attentiveness to my concerns. He is an excellent doctor.
September 30, 2021
Very friendly environment. Nurses were amazing and very patient. Their attitude and professionalism helped in reducing anxiety. Dr. Kevin, the anesthesiologist, the nurse, and the technician inspired a lot of confidence. I'm very thankful for their amazing service.

There were technical issues with the Follow My Health app. It took a bit to connect with other system. Dr was nice & informative but no one from the office called me back to schedule the colonoscopy. It taken me several attempts to get it scheduled. If somebody hesitant on this procedure the process to just schedule has been a bit ridiculous and mine still not scheduled.

I would like to have these type of Drs all the time, that they listen & friendly

Dr Dhaloria is an amazing physician. He possess all the qualities and characteristics that makes a physician sought out!! He is patient, caring, charismatic, knowledgeable, relatable and the list can go on. I consider myself blessed to have him as my gastroenterologist!
September 08, 2021
I really liked being seen on time!!!
September 03, 2021
The physician is very gentle and polite to patient.
September 01, 2021
Great doctor. I felt so comfortable talked to him about my health condition. He was carefully diagnosed my symptom. I like to see him again on next follow up.

Dr. Dholaria has demonstrated a high level of competence and professionalism. Very attentive and very knowledgeable. Sympathetic to the fact that making an appointment with him at his office is a nightmare. PIH needs to improve the length of time a patient is able to see a PIH specialist (such as Dr. Dholaria)upon referral by the patient's regular doctor. The waiting time to see Dr. Dholaria is so long by the time one is seen, either the ailment is gone or has worsened a lot.

Dr. Dholaria's bedside manners is excellent. He specks to me with compassion. I can ask him anything even if it might sound silly. Dr. Dholaria is my second opinion Dr, I chose to stay with him because I heard the care in his voice and how much he wanted to help with my pain. I am not ??% healed but I know Dr. Dholaria and his staff will guide me into perfect health.

My nurses, technicians and doctor were all great. I'm personally not thrilled with needles but my nurse got me on the first try. All of my meds and moniter equipment was on my left side which is also the side I needed to roll over onto. (Couldn't use my right arm because of missing lymph nodes) ( I was also given a wrist band to ensure no needles on my right side) As the assistant asked me to roll over, the anesthesiologist also started my sedation meds and the blood pressure arm band also was filling up. The sedation meds burned really bad and I asked for him to release the arm band. He did immediately and flushed my line with saline to reduce the burn. I was much more comfortable after that and everything went well as far as I know. Thank you for making a not so pleasant surgery more pleasant.

I don't recommend Doctors or facilitiesto people unless they ask.
August 09, 2021
I did a video appointment. But I was send email and a text. I was waiting on the laptop when the Doctor was waiting on my phone. Thankfully I checked my phone portal and he had tried me there he said for the second time but the whole time is as in the laptop wishing room. Why the confusion???
August 09, 2021
GI Appointments are always backed up but I'm glad to be treated by Dr Dholaria. It was a year since he last saw me but he remembered everything that was going on with me. That I'm turn made our visit very productive! He also supports me in advocating for my health, not all Dr's do.
August 09, 2021
Great caring doctor.
August 04, 2021
I walked into my appointment very nervous. I was soon relaxed when I met my doctor who was professional. After talking about my history of health issues I felt more relaxed. I feel he understand my health concerns to better help me. He explained in detail with the diagram shown on the wall. I'm now more mentally prepared for my procedure coming up.
August 03, 2021
It took 3 or more months to get he appointment, then they sent me to the wrong place and the procedure started 2 1/2 hours late
July 27, 2021

July 22, 2021
Everyone from the security officer and receptionist up front to the nurse who took me out in a wheelchair were professional, comforting, informative, humorous and had an exceptional repport between themselves as well as the patients.
July 01, 2021
Hello, I was very impressed with time that I was there. The appointment time was right on time. He answered, mostly, all my questions. We had a good conversation about the procedure and I felt relaxed and that he answered all my questions right.

February 08, 2021
Felt completely comfortable during my visit.
February 05, 2021
The doctor did excellent. He was very trustworthy, he jistened very carefully. There's not much that he could improve, I can't think of anything. However, there is much to improve in one's ability to be able to talk to the anesthesiologist in advance. I'm not even sure that I'll be able to get to talk to him before the procedure and that's something that really matters to me and I am not happy at all that I have to wait til the day of to be able to be in communication and that I will not be able to know in advance who is going to be doing it. I understand there's a team of 6 people that rotate and that's just not acceptable in my in my view.
February 04, 2021
Pleasant, courteous, explained plan of care well.
January 29, 2021
Dr. Dholaria is the best. He's smart, concise and knowledgeable of his craft. He cares about the welfare of his patients and discusses alternative treatments and takes the time to earnestly listen to my concerns. I have the utmost confidence in his ability to treat my specific needs. When I was hospitalized he looked in on me every day. I looked forward to his visits and so appreciated his genuine concern for my well-being. He's a rock star!!
January 20, 2021
The Doctor is knowledgeable, and I like that he works with my other Doctors to make sure I am getting the best possible treatment. I also wanted to let you know the staff is very respectful and polite.
January 11, 2021
I was told that they were going to call me right back to set an appointment and I still haven't heard from them. So at this point I can't really say. What I rate him because I haven't really seen him. It was only on. on the phone like facebook face time Thank you.
