Dr. Dharmotharan was excellent. This was my first time of seeing her and I now want to change my provider to her. She was perfect in every way - totally professional, knowing her business, friendly and caring. She genuinely cares for her patients and it shows.Apr 17,2017
Understood problem, answered questions, knowledgeable , seemed to enjoy her work.Apr 12,2017
Dr.D took the time to listen to what my concerns were, then she explained what the treatment plan was going to be to help resolve my issues. Dr. D really cares for the health an wellness of her patients. You can tell she loves what she does because it shines though when she interacted with me during my exam. Dr. D is a wonderful physician an I will defiantly recommend her to my friends an family who are looking for a PCP.Apr 10,2017
