I am a physician and I am very particular about my medical care; Dr Girdhar was excellent. He reviewed my history with me in detail, he listened attentively and compassionately about my concerns and addressed each concern with the utmost detail. He not only addressed my concerns but provided additional feedback as to recommendations regarding preventive measures to remain healthy. I was very impressed with Dr Girdhar's empathetic, kind nature and his thoroughness during my visit, he is a great example of the type of empathetic professionalism that we all should practice as physicians.
