Bottom line .....Just don't go here. I am the parent that had a daughter that visited this doctor. When I found out it was him I tried to discourage her from going. She is young and had no clue. If they're on our insurance she assumed it was okay. WRONG!
She called into the office to cancel the stress test and the person that answered the phone told her to hold that the doctor wanted to talk with her. The doctor came on and was very rude, scoulding her like a small child, and was totally unprofessional. I in all of my own years of doctoring, my parents and grandparents doctoring have never, ever known of a doctor doing this. Is this doctor
really licensed in this country? He said she had high blood pressure.??? No just the opposite. She has very low blood pressure. An athlete in great shape with a low pulse and blood pressure. She has for a long time had a heart beat of under 50 beats per minute and has been diagnosed with bradycardia 8 years ago when she was a swimming.
The most troublesome issue is that he had given her two presciptions. One for magnesium and one for Bystolic. I'm not a Phd nor a nurse but anything a doctor gives to me I always look and review what the drug is used for and the side effects and what to look for. I looked up both drugs as soon as our daughter got home. Bystolic -yes is used to regulate heart palpitation (arrhythmia) and to help with HIGH blood pressure. But it too will cause slow heartrate, irregular heartbeat, chest pains and breathing problems . The magnesium yes helps contraction and relaxation of heart muscle and muscles. He prescribed her a 64 mg dose plus she was already talking a daily vitamin from the Cooper Clinic line which already 200 mg, and plus everything she eats is rich with magnesium. A adult female should have only between 200-300 mg of magnesium Here again another bad precribed drug by this doctor. Too much magnesium can cause serious health problems, including nausea, vomiting, severely lowered blood pressure, slowed heart rate, deficiencies of other minerals, confusion, coma, and even death.

With any doctor do your own fact finding, ask questions, think twice before putting any medication in your mouth. Most of all look out after your young adults.......They assume the doctor has to know what he is doing.

THIS DOCTOR DOES NOT.

GET YOUR MEDICAL RECORDS - KNOW THE LAW
I've read allot of reviews regarding that Dr Segals office will not send or provide your medical records. Please read below. It is a federal law he has to supply your records!!! In a timely fashion or else.

How long does a physician have to send me the copy of medical records I requested?

If you made your request in writing for the records to be sent directly to you, the physician must provide copies to you within 15 days. The physician can charge a reasonable fee for the cost of making the copies. If the physician's office advises you that a fee will be charged for the records, the medical records do not need to be provided until the fee is paid. If the physician does not comply within the time frame you can file a written complaint with the Medical Board.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

What is the penalty if a physician does not respond to my request for a copy of my medical records?

The Medical Board may take any action against the physician which is appropriate for failing to provide the records within the legal time limit. This can range from making sure that the doctor actually does provide you the copy you requested, to a citation and fine or disciplinary action against the physician's medical license.

The office is a pit. The Dr.'s wife does his billing and it is 2-3 years behind. The Dr. is rude, uses inappropriate language to the patients, doesn't do anything unless you specifically ask for it and then later he says he did it because you were whinning about it. In 3 years he did 3 EKG no lab work and he took me off of medication that my old dr. said i would be on forever. I had colon cancer and i have to have my exams every so often so I asked him for a referral. After it was done I went to him and showed him the pictures and the paperwork that the gastroenterologist gave me. He said, "Why are you showing me these, a hole is a hole and I know nothing about this". It took me multiple trips to his office and finally having to have my new Dr. call him for my records in order for them to release them. It took months. He was rude on the phone when I called about them and was rude in the office (said that maybe he was just having a bad day and I should give him another chance. After all he had done for me). I would not recommend him to a sick dog.

This doctor is beyond nuts.. and I mean that in the best way possible. I cannot believe he is practicing medecine. He will not forward my records to my new doctor, I am completely appalled that this man is in practice. Originally I thought he was a great and honest doctor on the first vist. After I agreed to become his patient, I've had nothing but problems. I felt very uncompfortable in the room as he examined me two visits in a row for no reason. He kept saying you have a very nice , smooth body.. All I needed was a referral and I got that , I will never be seeing this man again.

My father was taken to JPS and was on life support this year. Dr. Segal has been his Doctor for 12 years. He saw him 4 times per year. He will not release his records. He has cussed me,my father(who is 86) for trying to get his records. This man is mental. Very angry!!

I worked for this Dr. so I know what goes on in the office!! We had a few female patients tell us that he was unethical during the EKG's. Also a patients husband inquired about his wife in the hospital & Dr. Segal replies with this rude statement," Sir, I have checked every part of her body except her 2 holes." !! His office is so messy, there are charts stacked up on every desk including the dining table in the break room!!! He had the odasity to get mad @ me everyday & ask in a hateful tone,"Why can't u find the charts!?!" Then they would cheat in there taxes , that's why they had to change their tax I.D. The patients are leaving right & left!! Then he asked me with a ethnocentristic attitude, "Why can't u Americans understand people from other countries?!" I hope he goes back to India!!
