Dr. Kansal is very professional and kind. She understood my conditions and the treatment I keep receiving to this day has only been improving my health! She never makes me feel uncomfortable. She never discriminates nor malpractices. She's the most caring Neurologist I've ever been treated by. I highly recommend her! :)
