I arrived for my appointment and had to wait 60 minutes to see her. I still had the problem with my eye 30 days later and she just prescribed the same steroid drug again without seeking a different solution. Would not recommend. See her other reviews on google and yelp.

Dr Kotecha is very pleasant and personable. As a doctor, her approach is conservative and careful. The office is well-run and I've rarely waited more than a few minutes before being seen.
