Patient Reviews

January 21, 2019
Satisfying experience. Very caring physician. I would trust him with my health.
January 16, 2019
I'm glad this is my doctor now.
January 03, 2019
I am extremely pleased with Dr. C. My husband and I discussed how much we really appreciate his professionalism, demeanor, and respect Dr. C always shows us.
January 02, 2019
This was follow up visit following my hospital stay. This doctor did the best he could to cover for my regular doctor.
January 02, 2019
Appreciate being seen on the day I called when really feeling fully exhausted and even feeling faint at times.
December 31, 2018
Dr. Wasim Chughtai took the time to ask me questions, examine me in a non-rushed manner and explain everything in an easy to understand way. I also got my lab results back the same day. Overall, a great experience.
December 26, 2018
When I saw the doctor, we really didn't have enough time for him to get a thorough idea of my health problems and such, and I'm sorry about that, but they're just wasn't time during that visit to - I'm older and so I have, you know, a lot of things like all kinds of Osteoarthritis and such. We really just didn't get a chance to talk about things like that, and another time I would have inquired - when I made the appointment - that there would be time, because I know they have to do it in allotments of15 minutes or something like that. Anyways, thank you. Bye.
December 21, 2018
I really like how Dr Chughtai explains what he is doing when giving his examination. Very clear and understandable.
December 20, 2018
This was the first visit to the doctor.
December 13, 2018
Okay, I have some problems that are now going on with me, and the doctor didn't seem to be even interested in what was going on with me.
December 12, 2018
Doctors should allow patients to get their medication back on track even it's been a year off of it.
November 29, 2018
My only disappointment was how hard it was for me as an older woman to hop on the bed with the ridiculous paper to be examined! Also to be handed a tiny cup to gather urine . It slipped my fingers and I was very stressed out! Next time I'm bringing a bigger container and transferring it to the pathetic container !
November 26, 2018
Dr. Chughtai is very professional and checks to make sure he answers my questions.
November 08, 2018
Terrible I told him the medications I was on and he told me to take leave for my pain I'm still in severe pain and nothing I can do about it on going to be changing my doctors office
November 02, 2018
It was gigantic waste of time. They had no idea why I was there. I was discharged from Tabitha with an appointment scheduled with Dr. Chughtai. They gave me no reason for this appointment.
October 29, 2018
First visit and the appointment was great.
October 23, 2018
Got me in in half an hour.
October 22, 2018
Yes, I was had several things that I wanted to discuss and I was told we had 15 minutes and to pick 2. I was not not happy at all. I was told I would need to make other appointments to deal with anything. Other than that and I felt that there was not near enough time. Thank you.
October 16, 2018
The medical history was slightly unknown because the practice recently switched to a new computer system and some of the history apparently didn't transfer from the old to the new system. I didn't view this as a big deal. They asked questions to fill in some of the blanks, which only took a few minutes.
October 15, 2018
Have Drs read patients charts current info,and treatments when last seen. Then ya might feel like they help ya
October 12, 2018
I had to tell the dr like four time where the pain was running down my arm. He just didn't seem to listen very well and was a little gruff when I kept telling me where it was when he was saying it was another part of my arm.
October 11, 2018
my daughter was in town and thought I should see a doctor
October 05, 2018
I am new to Holmes Lake Family Medicine, this was my second visit and it went very well.
October 04, 2018
Terrible MD didn't listen to a thing I told him about my medical conditions and what medicines work the best for me. Will not be coming back or recommending to anyone else who seeks medical care. Very quick to walk in and walk out with no regard to what was really bothering me.
September 27, 2018
I had to find a doctor who would see me within 7 days of my dismissal from the hospital. I am so very grateful that Dr Chughtai would take me as a patient. Thsnk you.
September 26, 2018
I would like my blood result
September 24, 2018
I am my husband's advocate at any doctor's appointment he goes to, and I feel this last appointment, I was not being listened to. My husband has had 5 strokes, and the doctor, it just felt like I was a ghost in the room. He just didn't answer or respond to anything that I had said to him.
September 24, 2018
It is all good now
September 24, 2018
I was very satisfied with my experience and how quickly they utilized other resources when needed.
September 21, 2018
I think the best thing that could happen is when you stop listening to the AMA, the government, and everyone else, and you start treating the patients for what they need, not what is prescribed by big pharmacy. Stop listening to them, and start listening to your patients,and helping your patients as they need help, not how someone else sees it. Maybe you'll then be helping the people.
September 11, 2018
Dr. Chughtai is my old dr., from way back and glad to be back.
August 30, 2018
They were extremely welcoming and enjoyed the visit. He understood everything that I basically had in the past. There was a couple of questions I would have asked him but I forgot them so that's irrelevant at this time. And it was all a good experience. Thank you so much. Have a good day. Bye.
August 23, 2018
The lab worker was vvery professional and friendly. Front office help discussing parking instead of helping a client waiting. Also no gum chewing by any staff.
August 20, 2018
Dr Chughtai is second to known. You are so lucky to have him with your network of physicians. I trust him completely with my health care, and he is always on top of it! Love him love him!!!
August 20, 2018
My appointment was suppose to be at 2 pm. I had to be there at 2:45 for check in. My physician finally saw me at 4 pm. He was recommended by a friend, so this was my 1st visit. I was sent to lab corp for lab work because it was almost time to close and the lab at the doctor didn't have time to get done. Lab corp had me sit for 45 minutes and then told me that they couldn't take blood until they spoke to the doctor who had gone home for the day. Lab corp nor the physician contacted me the next day to reset my blood work so it still hasn't been done. Very dissapointed!
August 07, 2018
He's the best doctor in the world. Bye.
August 02, 2018
Attending Nurse and Front Desk staff needs to be more courteous.
August 02, 2018
I don’t even know yet how much I trust or don't trust, or anything. I'm happy with what I am seeing with doctor there. Thank you.
August 01, 2018
First visit to a new PCP (old one retired) and he doesn't know me at all. Also, first visit since the new computer system went in. One of the questions asked if the provider seemed to know my history. Because on the 2 reasons above, he didn't. HOWEVER, I really liked how he treated me and trust that he will get to know me in the years I expect him to be my PCP. I don't want someone to look at the low score I gave that one question and think that it was in any way a negative about Dr. Chughtai - because it certainly wasn't. It was a comment on our relationship being new and the system software being new.
July 30, 2018
I trust him as I have been with him over 20 years.
July 27, 2018
Doctor was not helpful at all. Didn't even read my chart before my appointment. Passed me on to another doctor. That is all Bryan has done is pass me around to doctors. No help at all. Still in great discomfort and pain. Doctors are not sympathetic just rude.
July 17, 2018
Positive doctors and staff. I believe our conservative course of action will better identify my knee and shoulder joint discomfort.
July 16, 2018
I was treated properly and in a timely manner.
July 11, 2018
We are just waiting for prescriptions to be sent in on a patient who's guardian is leaving the state tomorrow and has not received those from the doctor or the pharmacy has not received a call from the doctor's office yet to get those prescriptions, so we're a little bit worried, because he needs assistance in getting those medicines to him and he won't have anyone here after his guardian leaves to assist with that.
July 11, 2018
was very happy with me visit, very professional, informative and happy to have Dr. Chughtai as my primary doctor
July 02, 2018
I was seen in a timely fashion. The doctor allied the fears that I had regarding my condition and was good at directing me to having a blood panel so they could get further information. The professional person in the lab was delightful. It all went quite well and I look forward to my next appointment when that's necessary.
June 29, 2018
Yes, I thought he was very interested in what my problem was and he done a very good job of explaining to me what they were going to do or what needs to be done. I was very happy with him.
June 29, 2018
Wonderful nurses !
June 27, 2018
We are currently at the ER based on the recommendation of the doctor. He indicated that there were concerns with the blood work and we should go to ER and get a CT scan. They were puzzled when we arrived that the dr didn’t just order the CT instead of using the emergency room. ER staff said that the blood results from yesterday were not remarkable. Had to redo the blood work and currently waiting for CT after several hours. Dr. Showed no interest in identifying the issue just wanted to quickly pass the buck. Have already changed healthcare providers and will be having records from ER sent to new physician
June 27, 2018
First time meeting this doctor so don't expect him to know my history. Also don't have enough experience with him to know if I would recommend him to others. Time will tell.
June 26, 2018
The wait is always too long at this office. Every time!
June 26, 2018
It was my first time records weren't there yet.
June 19, 2018
First appointment at the office after moving from out of state. That is why the medical history wasn’t know, but the doctor went over my information thoroughly. I was very happy with my visit.
June 14, 2018
Our experience with Bryan, and it's affiliates, are always positive. They're very kind and caring, and please do not do this survey every time I go there for something, and don't call me on Sunday. Thank you.
June 14, 2018
My answer regarding timeliness has only to do about being extremely busy that day, and because I was fit into the schedule on a very short notice for a pre-op physical I have no complaints on that score.
June 13, 2018
I had a decent experience. However, when I requested to have a certain test done due to a concern, I was refused. Debating on finding another doctor who will listen.
June 13, 2018
This week was the second time that I had seen Dr. Chughtai, and both times he had filled in for my primary care physician and he's done a really nice job of filling in for the doctor that I usually see, so I appreciate that and they are very flexible and helpful. Thank you.
June 12, 2018
A very pleasant experience.
June 11, 2018
This doctor had seen me only this is the first time he saw me. The only reason I went to him, was because my doctor wasn't there. I don't think it is fair to make a judgment on one visit for this doctor. Thank you.
June 08, 2018
New experience for both the physician and myself as this was the first major visit since my previous physician retired. I had some unfinished concerns at the end of my visit but forgot to bring them up although I did mention them at the beginning and was told we would get to that later and guess we both forgot.
June 05, 2018
Dr. was very thorough. I appreciated how he looked for answers and solve my need.
June 04, 2018
The person that takes us into the room, his assistant, did not seem totally engaged with us and more confrontational than usually with an assistant. But, love Dr. Chung Thai and perhaps the assistant just did not relate to us as individuals. I don't know.
May 30, 2018
Excellent Dr and Nursing staff.
May 30, 2018
First visit with new doctor
May 23, 2018
I called the following day after my appointment to provide more information about what was wrong. And that was a Thursday morning at 8:00 am. And I didn't receive a call back at all from the provider Thursday or Friday even though in the appointment he recommended I call back if the treatment was not working.
May 23, 2018
It's just sometimes it's difficult to understand what he is saying because of the different languages.
May 23, 2018
I had a several hour tachycardia experience and they got me right in and checked me out and set me up with a cardiologist in June. I would go the the ER if it happened again before June. It is hard for the doctor to be familiar with my medical history as he took over for the doctor before him as she retired and she took over for my original doctor who left to teach!!!!! All within the space of a few years in which I only saw these two doctors a couple of times. I am sure the doctor I am assigned to now in this practice is excellent and I am just glad the practice is still taking Medicare clients!!
May 23, 2018
This was not my normal doctor since my regular doctor was on vacation. He did an excellent job given that I am not his regular patient.
May 22, 2018
Brrr cold in reception area !
May 18, 2018
He was not my regular physician. But I was able to get in on a Friday.
May 17, 2018
I did not see my normal doctor I saw a new physician, I didn't feel like he understood or cared that it was hard for me to get time away from work to come in and now I'll have to return to have my ears cleaned which I felt he should have atleast attempted the day I was there. Now I'll have to take time off work and pay for another visit that should have been handled while I was there
May 16, 2018
All went as expected.
May 16, 2018
I was very impressed with the my acquaintance and my very first time seeing the doctor. I was informed. I understood everything, it was excellent.
May 14, 2018
I have had some bad experiences with other doctors. I fully trust Dr. Chughtai. He has been there for me for the last 10 years. I would recommend him to anyone in need. He has treated me with the upmost respect. I can't say that for any other Dr. I have ever seen. Thank you.
May 11, 2018
I have only seen him once so am not able to make any comments.
May 10, 2018
I was pleased.
May 09, 2018
Well my last visit, with the doctor was a good one. It seems the more we get acquainted with each other, the better I feel about going to him, so it went well and I think he's a good doctor for me. Thank you.
May 04, 2018
Very pleasant experience. Excellent doctor. Very pleased with care I received.
May 01, 2018
Nurses are the best in the industry. Top shelf, they make you feel comfortable and treat you like your there only patient. Dr. Chughtai is 2nd to none, he saved my life. Enough Said
April 25, 2018
I had a mostly good experience. Bryan Health had changed its on line portal so most of my records were not available.
April 24, 2018
I have no idea how I can get a consult with a surgeon for a hip that I can hardly walk on right now, and the doctor said…basically said nothing about what I told him. He performed no lab treatment on me regarding my abnormal lab values that I presented hi
April 24, 2018
Gave me sample medicine however did not explain how to use it. Did not listen to my symptoms or tell me what to use to sleep better just said what I was taking over the counter was not good for what I had. Did not seem to care about what symptoms I had just what he could see on the surface.
April 18, 2018
The staff is very nice. I have no problems with the staff. The doctor I waited an hour and a half to see him and when I did see him he had no idea why I was there and it was, I was told I needed to come in for a medicine check and he had no idea why I was there, was not really interested in me at all, they had already filled my medicine, so that wasn't a problem, he just was not interested in me. He quoted being there to medical, whatever, about anything I said, I'm concerned about carotid artery and he said he couldn't, he couldn't help me with that, didn't suggest anything else, and I was concerned about my right eye which keeps going fuzzy and
April 17, 2018
Happy with the visit! Fixed my problem
April 13, 2018
Dr. Chugtai did a very thorough exam & doing necessary lab work to determine my medical condition.
April 13, 2018
I told the scheduler what I was to be seen for (2 things)when I made the appt. The first was that I wanted a referral for physical therapy. The Dr. did not seem to know much about the second one. He said "i'll look through your records if you want to come back". Walked out in the same shape in which I entered. I like the staff, but I haven't been able to get much done there.
April 13, 2018
The phones need to be answered mor quickly.
April 12, 2018
The doctor is very knowledgeable and caring. He takes time to listen and answers concerns in an educative manner. I am highly impressed with his demeanor. Excellent physician.
April 12, 2018
When you're not feeling well, you don't really want to have to drive over to Bryan, find a parking place, walk in the building, find the right desk to get a chest x-ray. It was awkward and irritating. Like I said, when you feel well, that's a burden. When you don't feel well, that's a burden.
April 12, 2018
The Dr. Chughtai pays close attention to my concerns and provide clear answers. Systematic approach in learning about his new patient. He is knowledgeable, patient, caring, and kind.
April 11, 2018
IT WAS NICE TO MEET THE NEW PHYSICIAN FOR ME. HE DID WONDERFUL EXPLAINING EVERYTHING. HE WAS VERY PLEASANT AND MADE SURE I UNDERSTOOD WHAT HE CHECKED FOR ME
April 11, 2018
I have problems hearing. I do wear hearing aides, and he talked to the computer, not to me, and I didn't hear much of what he said, and I mentioned that to him, but it didn't seem to have any effect. The young man who was in there with computer…with a computer did some translating, but that was one problem that we had. He was not able to answer some questions that I wanted answered, and the office was not able to answer them. So, it was a mixed review. I thought he was a nice person, and he is my doctor at the present time, at least. Goodbye.
April 09, 2018
Worst experience in this office ever. Been going here my whole life and will be transferring to a new primary care physician as soon as possible. Doctor did not listen to anything I said, ran the exact same test as they did Friday. Same negative results. Ended up going to a specialist for relief after two visits to this office.
April 09, 2018
I was happy with my appointment with Dr. Chughtai. He spent enough time to answer my question's.
April 05, 2018
It was my first visit with Dr. Chughtai and I was very pleased with his listening and concern. The office gals are good too.
April 04, 2018
I realize this was a first visit so I didn't expect too much. history information wasn't directly available at the office. Appointment was about 40 minutes late.
April 03, 2018
I never have to wait a long time for my appointments or to see the doctor. I am very satisfied with my doctor. The lab girls are great!
April 03, 2018
Computers down so hindered visit.
March 28, 2018
I was very frustered with my appointment, doctor somewhat, nurse somewhat and could believe it was done.
March 27, 2018
I could not answer the nurse's question regarding the amount of Vitamin D I take each day. She said I could enter that information at home, on the on-line health portal. Although I am able to access my "page" on https://mychart.bryanhealth.org/ I cannot locate where such information is recorded. I have called about this but have not received an answer to my call.
March 26, 2018
It was my first visit with Dr. Chughtai and I was very impressed.
