Hollidaysburg, PA |
Dr. Kansal is very knowledgeable and caring. She has always answered all of my questions. She helped me through some difficult experiences.
Duncansville, PA |
TERRIBLE! DO NOT GO! The only redeeming part of my visit was the overworked and courteous staff. They are amazing and very knowledgeable. The building is dirty and equipment is old. Doctor Kansal was mean and cut me off during all my questions, wouldn't answer half of them, just brushed them off. I've never been treated like that by a medical professional before, or by anyone whom I'd been nothing but courteous. I'm not really sure what her problem was that day, but I will never go back.
