I just want to tell you, Dr Gopal that today when i decided to go search for your office so i wouldn't be late for my appt next week, your employees who answer your phone, are giving you a BAD REPUTATION to the point that i called my primary dr to find me another doctor. When i called your office number, because i couldn't find the office, the women were so rude!!! And you're supposed to be a doctor?? And so you know, my family right now, your staff is giving you a BAD LASTING REPUTATION!!!

Dr. Govindarajan has been my primary doctor for over 10 years. He listens to my concerns, answers my questions, and has has done a wonderful job with periodic checkups. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a new health care physician.
