Dr. Gorwara's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Gorwara "Dr. Gorwara was inspired to become a family physician at the age of 14 while she was in Boarding School in Northern India. She was influenced by the school doctor who visited the infirmary daily. At one point Dr. Gorwara had become very ill, and was able to observe first-hand how a doctor made a clinical diagnosis with limited resources and testing. Treating her appropriately based on symptoms and examination only. It was not only his intelligence, but the compassion he showed her as he visited her daily in the hospital for a month, that drove her to become a family physician. She enjoys getting to know her patients and their families, not only on a professional level but a personal one as well. She feels the greatest joy a family physician can have is taking care of an entire family and really knowing her patients. She is a strong advocate of woman's health care, as a result, women of all ages gravitate to her. Dr. Gorwara is a part of Global Medical Brigades. This is a volunteer non-profit international movement of medical professionals working alongside local communities to set up sustainable health systems. She recently traveled to Nicaragua with her 16 year old son where they worked together and helped develop a health care system for an impoverished community. In her off hours, Dr. Gorwara likes to run, bike and hike. She has two teenage boys and enjoys spending all her free time with them. She is an excellent cook. She combines both her Indian and Welsh heritage to create unique dishes."

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.
