Dr. She is very nice. I go to many doctors and she does a good job reviewing all the info. I am not thrilled with her computer system since I have to get all test results online. I do not have a computer or smart phone. Sometimes she is a little slow with my prescription requests.

Dr. T is very thorough, caring, and confident. Nevertheless she is not afraid to consult with other specialists (cardiologist in my case) to confirm her readings of medical tests (abnormal ekg in my case), which only adds to my confidence in her. And importantly, from year to year she remembers me and my history. I highly recommend her.

I have been a patient of Dr. Thukkaram's for the last 5 years and have always appreciated her compassionate nature and ability to put me at ease when answering my many questions.

I am a fellow medical professional. When I called her office to speak with them about a patient, she was extremely rude. She seems to have no
north brunswick, nj |
Very pleasant experience with both office staff and Doctor. I always get a same day appointment unless it is Thursday or Sunday. She is knowledgeable and seems to genuinely care for her patient taking her time to explain in lay man's terms. No wonder she is rated top tier in all the insurance companies for her quality of care and cost efficiency
north brunswick, nj |
My Husband and I have been Dr Thukkaram's patients since 2005. We are mostly healthy and usually see her for occasional sick visits and annual physicals. She is very thorough and spends a lot of time in counselling a healthy lifestyle. I particularly appreciate her preference for lifestyle changes rather than starting medications. Unlike my previous physician, she will not prescribe antibiotics unless absolutely necessary. I would highly recommend her for those who value that kind of approach!
