Dr. Girdhar is the kindest, caring doctor I have ever had! He treats people -- not conditions or ailments. During my visits with him, he gives me his full attention and focus, and he is not distracted by other events happening in the office. Dr. Girdhar always takes time to listen to my concerns or questions. He explains/answers questions patiently, respectfully, and thoroughly. Dr. Girdhar, with his comforting smile, makes me feel important and as if my health matters.
