My husband and I have been her patients for a few years. She is very interested in prevention and is very good at motivating people to be more healthy. With her help I lost more than 40 lbs and I was able to get off some of my medications that I took for years! I would highly recommend Dr Thukaram...more

Just hollow talk that can impress gullible people. Incompetent. And unexpected bills. And smart about billing you and convincing you it is all your mistake. Be warned. Dont book an appointment because she is available. That is not the reason to choose a doctor.
