Patient Comments (1)
in Rice, VA |
I highly recommend Dr Purohit. He listens carefully to patient concerns and has a high level expertise regarding heart function. Tests can be administered in the office which prevents yet another appointment at a hospital. His staff is knowledgeable and efficient. Yes, wait time is long. Get over it - bring something to occupy yourself. The wait is because this doctor actually treats YOU, not a computer screen. This man is a gifted physician, a rare find anywhere let alone Farmville VA.
