Extremely impersonal/bad doctor
I had a hairline fracture on my index finger, so took an appointment with this doctor, Dr. Dinesh Bhuva. Got a second day appointment, Great! Went precisely at the correct time, 2:30 filled out all the forms and then had to wait for one full hour before the 'doctor' came to see me. He came, was extremely impersonal to the point of being rude (maybe he thought i didnt deserve any respect because i am Indian too?) was very harsh on my index finger where i was hurt and created more pain than was originally there. Then, in more impersonal fashion tied two bandages around my fingers, then sent me home packing. No polite talk, no advise, nothing. Made me feel like an interruption to his work, probably he doesnt realize that i am his 'work'! All in about two minutes (yeah the first minute he took that x-ray thingy). Oh my God, i have been here in the US for the past 9 years and never have i seen such a rude and harsh doctor anywhere. I would strongly recommend anyone considering this doctor to not go to him, go somewhere else. This 'doctor' is not worth your time. In all, i had just wasted not just my $30 copay, but overall two hours of time during my workday.

I received a bill of about $1500.00 for the two minutes two bandage treatment that i have received from this 'doctor'. Oh god, this guy is in a mad rush to get rich off of me and similar poor souls. Cant believe that he charged close to $600.00 for some 'surgery' ..was i sleeping anything during those two mins when he performed surgery on me?? possibly!! maybe running two small bandages around my index finger would amount to surgery...and my insurance company has actually paid for a part of this 'surgery'..can u believe this? I hope there is some way to report this person to the authorities and do a great service to the world!!!
