Dr. Girdhar is consistently kind, caring and compassionate. the dealings I had over the phone with his nurse Janelle were equally caring and kind.

very happy with dr GIRDHAR and his office staff

Very good visit! Immediately felt relaxed knowing I was in professional care. I'm a veterinarian and understand how important it is to our clients. Felt I was treated with honest compassion. I don't know how you do it. If my waiting room was that full I'd feel overwhelmed and less objective. Your staff is very supportive and a gift

I absolutely adored Dr. Girdhar, and his staff was excellent. I was in a scary situation and Dr. Girdhar took the time to calm my fears and answer all of my questions, in "English" so I could understand.

Dr Girdhar has been my cardiologist for the past 16 years. I was also an RN for 40 years before I recently retired. Dr Girdhar is the best physician I have ever known. He is kind, compassionate and brilliant. He listens and is never rushed. He is the best. I have referred many people to him. His staff is also very kind and competent.

Dr Girdhar and his staff are simply the best.
