I love Dr. Gajjar. He is has a great bedside manner and always a smile on his face. He spends time with me and makes me feel like I am more than a number.

Nice Doctor, but wasted my time. Treated me several times in the office, but unfortunately was a "no show" in the ER when I really needed his skills. After a 10 hour wait, I ended up in surgery with a doctor I never met. Nice. Haven't been back.
