      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.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
