My Dr retired so I switched to her within the group - Every time I went to her she never remembered me - the last straw was she scheduled a stress test and echo and I went in for the results - Months later her nurse called me so we could discuss the results! Like what?

I went to see Dr. Vadher for the first time in September of 2018 after being recommended by my G. I. Specialist who I trust immensely. I went in after a stay in the hospital and several internal pain issues. Doctor Vadher spent my appointments with me listening and truly concerned for my well-being. She tirelessly continued to get to the source of my pain. She has an amazing network of referring Specialists who she continued to stay in close contact regarding test results, etc. I had an appointment with Dr. Vadher this morning and as she was double checking everything is up date with me, I was truly able to thank her for really getting me back-on-track! Dr. Vadher is a wonderful, caring Doctor and I am so thankful to say....I am in very good hands!!

I find Dr Vadher to be a very caring and compassionate person. She is not only interested in you as a patient but also as a person, which makes it so comfortable for you to explain your problems.

very disappointing. My uncle had scheduled with Dr. Vadher and seen her on least a half a dozen occasions. Suddenly, she apparently had the staff inform him that he needed to see one of the other providers in the practice. His health is not good, and I think she felt hassled having to take extra time with him. It was frustrating for him to have to switch after establishing with a doctor

We travel over 30 miles to keep Dr. Vadher as the primary doctor. She really knows her stuff!! Recently my daughter visited the emergency room - and the next morning we received a call following up on her progress. She is a very good and knowledgeable doctor!

I believe Dr. Vadher to be a knowledgeable diagnostician, kindly compassionate, and dedicated physician. When she says lets check this out it is based on me a an individual not just another step in the protocol.

Dr. Vadher is wonderful! She is knowledgeable, thorough, professional (but not arrogant!), and supportive. I feel strongly about being an active participant in my health care, and I feel very comfortable in that respect with her. She is personable and always makes me feel at ease. When I've emailed her through the Patient Portal, she always responds promptly. I would recommend Dr. Vadher without hesitation for family, friends and new neighbors; and in fact, I already have!
