Review for Dr. Zaher

Dr. Goyal has been my doctor for almost two years. In my opinion, she is amazing. You can tell she truly cares about her patients and takes the time to go over results and concerns. She really listens and interacts with you during your appointments. She is encouraging and truly wants the best...
