What People Say About Dr. Ambika Softa, MD

If you can read and have internet access, you're already more qualified than her. It's amazing she still has her license. I have never met any doctor as uninformed and unknowledgable as her. Don't waste your me here.

I see a number of specialists and Dr. Softa has been very quick to coordinate with them . She has also taken care of some issues herself saving me time and money.
