Dr. Gandotra is very interested in my health when I go to her for care. She is always attentive and pays close attention when I have something to say. She is very caring and an excellent doctor.

Excellent doctor

I feel too much testing is pushed and unnecessary. I come for my regular physical exam so I can get my prescriptions refilled and am always asked to have other testing done as a precaution. I know this is age related areas but I have no symptoms and am fine.

Provider said I looked pale and said I should go to emergency room to be evaluated. This was costly for me and they said I was dehydrated. I don't know why she couldn't see that and she never said why she thought I should go to emergency room.
