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.

Dr. Gorwara is an excellent listener and compassionate doctor. She really digs deep into unusual problems. I have recommended many friends who also see her as their PCP.

I waited in the exam room for 46 minutes the first time, 42 the second. No sorry or any comment on why I waited. My physical would have felt more thorough if it had been done by a child.
