Non one, either Dr. Gandhi, or a nurse has ever discussed the results of my last lipid and lever panel, drawn Feb. 11, 2020 with me - I was instructed to cease taking station therapy. Jan. 1, 2020 and there has been absolutely no follow up.

March 3, 2020 8:09 AM

It was a very efficient visit and very easy to work with all staff & doctors.

Dr. Gandhi is great. He takes time to listen, reviews history & discusses history so he clearly understands it ... and he worked to develop a strategy of minimizing the meds I needed to take, which was important to me.

October 7, 2019 7:00 PM

I saw Dr. Gandhi 2 times. He was very helpful.

September 24, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr Ghandi was most helpful and generous with his time, opinions and probing questions. I felt he wanted to "get to the bottom" of my concerns, my fears, and move forward to a good result.

September 17, 2019 7:00 PM

I was extremely pleased with my first visit with Dr. Gandhi! He recommended several tests which I agreed with. These tests are normally performed at a hospital and much to my surprise I was able to have these tests done at his Office! This made things so much easier for me. Everyone I came in contact with was very kind and caring. All tests were thoroughly explained to me so that I could understand what to expect. There is really a wonderful group of people who work at this office!! I would highly recommend Dr Gandhi and his staff!!

The office is friendly and very helpful.

June 28, 2019 7:00 PM

Was very pleased with the care. He took the best steps possible, but was cautious in how aggressive to be. Took a "baby step" approach, which I appreciated.

June 25, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr Ghandi, treats me with respect and answers my questions as an adult and does not talk down to me when explaining issues. He always explains procedures/tests etc in such a way that it calms my anxiety.

June 24, 2019 7:00 PM

Shows concern for me and very professional always answers my questions.

February 25, 2019 6:00 PM

Dr. Ghandi is always on time, explains conditions & why meds are needed. He understands the frustration when many meds & procedures are needed.

February 25, 2019 6:00 PM

The doctor came in the exam room and the nurses was still with me. He said "you're not finished"? and the nurse said "just have to take the pulse". The doctor went out and I had to wait while he saw another patient. Why couldn't he have stayed one minutes while she took my pulse instead of me waiting for a long time?

February 25, 2019 6:00 PM

Very happy with this Doctor

February 17, 2019 6:00 PM

January 18, 2019 6:00 PM

I was disappointed that I had to wait 1 and a 1/2 hours past my appointment time to see the doctor.

January 13, 2019 6:00 PM

Dr Gandhi is great, very much on top of my condition. His nurse and staff are super!

January 13, 2019 6:00 PM
