Dr. Jha is a very good listener. I find she tells me the hard truth... sometimes it's not what I want to hear but the truth nonetheless. Often it's not until I get home and really think that I appreciate what she says.

Dr. Jha is extremely cold, abrupt, and rude. Also, cannot ever reach receptionist (goes straight to voice mail), and she does not return phone calls. I went once and have been trying to cancel my second appointment now for over a week. NOT RECOMMENDED!
