Awfull! Made my preschooler cry and didn't think it necessary to apologize..., May 31, 2013
Apparently he didn't approve of my daughter coloring with the paper and crayons that his staff provided. When I told him that I was disappointed by this, he told me that I was not doing my job as a parent. I will not be back.
Poor customer service. No compassion. Not helpful. Rude. No resolutions offered. ..., May 14, 2013
Regarding our appointment this morning of May 14, 2013.
Upon arriving my 94 year old mother was anxious to to avail herself to the services of Dr. Kligman for chronic neck pain.
I had been referred to Dr. Kligman by my personal physician.
Upon presenting my mothers insurance card we were informed that it would not be excepted as Dr. Kligman was not listed as the primary care physician.
I was disappointed to say the least when i was informed of this, as it was never explained to me when the appointment for a new patient was made that Dr. Kligman would have to be elected as her primary care physician in order for her insurance card to be accepted and to be seen by the Dr.
I told the receptionist behind the desk that Healthnet would absolutely pay as I occasionally bring my mother to other primary care physicians that are not listed on her insurance card with out issues from the insurance company (healthnet).
No avenue of resolution was offered by the receptionist, and in my opinion I was treated very rudely and was also told that my attitude was not appreciated, at which time I told her I also did not appreciate her shortness with me either, to which she exclaimed that I came into the office with that attitude, which is NOT the case. I became agitated because after waiting 4 months for this appointment I felt that it was neglgent on their part that we were never informed that in order to be seen we would need to elect Dr. Kligman as our primary care physician prior to our appointment. I believe this was an oversight in their policy and not a fault of the patient.
I asked her to call the insurance company to verify that there would be no problem and was rebuffed, at which time I thought it best that I call the insurance company so their office would be assured of payment.
I made that call, there was no one else in the waiting room at the time and I was not causing a disturbance.
After several minutes on hold with Healthnet I was ab

Mislead about insurance co-pay and had to pay $350..., Apr 5, 2013
Went in for a mole consultation and got what I thought was included in my $40 co-pay (3 mole tests). 4 of their staff (including Dr. Fichtel) told me that the mole tests were "covered by insurance". Ended up getting a $350 bill for the testing. The situation went downhill from there...
Money hungry. Only in it for the Pharmecuetical kick-backs..., Feb 15, 2013
Poor monitoring of patients. Doctor Hemang Shah is simply a pill peddler with no concern of a patients well being. When patient has trouble due to medication the Doctor simply won't see them anymore. No concern of dangerous and debilitating after effects of drugs. Office staff will lie to protect him. AVOID THIS DOCTOR and his staff AT ALL COST !
