My physician referred me to a neurologist and somehow, this doctor was on top of the list. I spent a week (sic!) trying to get an appointment. No, it is not like "doctor is quite busy, we'll schedule you in a week". It is like:

First, "okay, we need a referral from your physician". Okay, I drive to physician's office. Staff at physician's are very surprised, as I have PPO insurance and should be able to see specialists without a referral. They write a referral anyway and give it to me.

Then, "okay, in addition to referral we need your complete medical records faxed to us". I drive to physicians office again and they make copies of all lab tests and scans that were made.

Then, "okay, but you also need to give us your insurance information". How often are you asked for your insurance information before your visit?

Then, "we also need visitation notes from your physician".

And finally, "okay, we forgot to tell you - all of the above must be faxed directly from your physician's office. Then we can schedule your appointment at, let's see, end of January". Yes, that's two months from now.

If you want to jump through hoops and hurdles just to get an appointment scheduled - that's your doctor. Otherwise, look further.

[UPDATE] I have been contacted yesterday by another member of Dr. Sachdev's staff, who seemed to be more sane. She told me that ultimately, I need to take the above information to the appointment, but the doctor prefers to review it in advance. Yet, the appointment could only be scheduled for mid-February. I'll update this review if I don't find another one neurologist before then...

[ANOTHER UPDATE] I have just been contacted by their office again: they canceled the mid-February appointment and offered another one at end of March. I just told to cancel the appointment altogether.
