I have never had first class treatment until I came here. I can't believe my good fortune in finding Dr. Gorwara and this practice. They took all tests and administered vaccines in the same location. It was the best doctors visit I have ever had. Doctor and staff are thoughtful, kind and caring.

I find the office clean, organized, and bright; the staff kind, skilled and attentive; the doctors focused, knowledgeable, and comforting. I feel confident that my health is well monitored by this team. I would take my mom here if she were still alive.

Unkind, bad listener, extremely rushed
Shockingly bad bedside manner. Please seek help elsewhere if you have a chronic condition and/or are looking for a provider to listen to you and not be condescending! She's rushed and she makes her comments on your lifestyle in an incredibly judgemental tone. Barely listened.

She has the most terrible bedside manner - everything was rushed. She didn't believe me when I told her I was experiencing pain. She didn't believe me when I said I didn't drink. She didn't listen, she was rude and made assumptions that I wanted to remove my IUD and continued to condescend me. As a patient, I have the right to check with my doctor about my symptoms and see if they are normal. She should have replied with patience and compassion. Instead, she condescended me and snapped at me. She didn't even listen. Worse, every doctor that I've gone to who performs a breast exam starts with "Now, please remove your gown," and instructs me to remove my gown. Dr. Gorwara didn't do that. She ripped my gown off me. As a sexual assault survivor, that tactic was extremely shocking and definitely put me into a state of PTSD. I'll never go back to her. I'm appalled by the way I was treated, and I would never recommend her to anyone. I don't trust a single word she said about my diagnosis.

Dr. Gorwara always takes her time, asks the right questions and truly cares about her patients. She performed many tests and is the reason my son was diagnosed early with Hodgkin's Lymphoma. She is an amazing doctor who is smart and takes her time with each patient. She is always available and I can't say enough positive things about her. All doctors should take note and be more like her.

Extremely rude, unkind and unprofessional. I’m in the medical field and was surprised by her unprofessionalism. I believe she will take advantage of people who do no know their medical rights. Seek help elsewhere.

Dr Gorwara was our family doctor for few years. And I couldn't be happier to find such a great doctor. She took a great care of us, specially my daughter. I'm sad that my insurance doesn't cover her new medical group. It's not easy to find a doctor who spend time with you, listens and take action. I never was luck with doctor here in LA until I found Dr Gorwara. I hope to get her back as our family doctor again in the near future.

Dr. Anita is a fantastic and personable physician. I appreciate her work style and ethic, she is always so caring and tends to her patients making us feel like we are heard in each of our visits. I had to schedule a last minute appointment very close to a holiday week, and it was so easy and seamless to make an appointment and get seen by her staff. The office is always impeccable and warm with staff always smiling, and while I was there I was able to get a full physical, also.
