Best medical care! Told my problems straight to my face and educated me like no one ever had. He got my uncontrolled diabetes from 12.5% to 7.2% in a matter of months.

Review for Dr. Srivastava

Recently established care after my last primary care stopped practicing. I was sceptical as I loved the care that my doctor was providing. Appointment went excellent and his mannerism and knowledge is exception. Would definitely recommend to family
