She is an excellent doctor! I was diagnosed with a stage 4 colorectal cancer. She encouraged me and kept me thinking positive! She worked closely on my plan with a team of doctors to get me well!! I would highly recommend her to anyone!

Review for Dr. Bharwani

Dr. Tate is AMAZING, to say the least. She is very kind and understanding. She gets to the root of the problem and doesn't just prescribe medication, to cover up the symptoms. She cares about her patients and their overall well being. I would recommend her to anyone!!
