Excellent. Had heart attack symptoms and tested me for every possible reason for my shortness of breath and chest pain. Walked out of the hospital and I'm recovering well at home. Dr. Yadav is kind, listened to all of my concerns. A ++++++++++

Review for Dr. Netaji

Dr. Hardy was great with my 10 year old daughter, who was scared to experience getting a cast on her hand/arm for the first time. He was very thorough and nice. We were able to get an appointment within reasonable time to get my daughter’s broken hand taken care of.
