Dr. Girdhar has always been attentive to my concerns about my health and is excellent in explaining what I need to do and why. Also when prescribing medications he takes the time to explain why the medication is needed and what it does. I leave with a huge level of comfort after a visit with Dr. Girdhar. Can not give this man enough praise.

Dr. Girdhar is the best! He always takes the time to listen carefully to my concerns and reassure me that my ticker is ok! He is such a kind and wonderful man and is not allowed to ever retire...I'm being serious. :)
