Dr. Kothari was personable, very friendly, caring, and approachable. She was thorough and open to my explanation to what l was experiencing and had experienced. after hearing my concerns , she assured me that we would find the solution to my health challenge. I live quite a distance from her office but l look forward to having her as my rheumatologist. My husband , who is very protective of me feels the same trust and comfort l do. Thank you and GOD Bless you.

Dr. Kothari is a life saver. She's the most down to earth, easy to talk to physician I've ever encountered. Before her, I bounced around rheumatologist to rheumatologist. First impressions are everything in my opinion. I've never been through such a thorough medical background as I did with Dr. Kothari with any other doctor. She's a great listener with the most advanced knowledge on my disease. God bless her, I wish there were more caring people as her in this world.

She is rude, condescending, arrogant and unsympathetic. She doesn't like to be questioned or contradicted. She acts as though you are beneath her and not as educated as she is and you should blindly trust her. She signed off on paperwork stating she has reviewed your medical info and condition with me but didn't do either. She treated me as though I wasted her time. My new Dr. told me that's not the first time they have heard that about her either. Not good. If I could give 0 stars I would.
