    Dr. Dhar LISTENS. That is something missing in so many doctors today. She cares. Dr. Dhar has been my Primary Care Physician for years and I wouldn't consider going anywhere else.

    I have had great experiences with Dr.Dhar and her staff. She is very good at explaining everything that comes up during a visit, and is very non-judgemental and professional when asking questions about my lifestyle and health. The only thing I would give as advice to potential patients is that the visits are very straight to the point , so if you have multiple concerns you should mention them when you schedule the appointment.

    I have gone to see Dr Dhar a handful of times in the past year. The first time I saw her, I hadn't been to a Dr in 3 yrs, since my son was born. I asked for a physical because I just felt like something was off in my body. Without doing blood work or anything, she told me I was being paranoid and prescribed me antidepressants. Later I went to the er & was told I had cysts on my ovaries. Fast fwd 6 months later, I go back to dhar for more cyst problems & she prescribes IBS med, Er fixed that too.

    Dr. Dhar has been our family doctor since about 2006. She is caring and compassionate and efficient, and I always feel she listens to my input. If I struggle with compliance I am encouraged rather than judged. I am made a part of every medical decision and she makes sure I understand the plan and answers any questions I have. She uses the computer well, by which I mean it doesn't get in the way of the face-to-face interaction but everything is documented by the time our session is through.
