Dr. Bajwa is very dedicated to her profession. It is obvious that the health and well-being of her patients is her top priority. She has helped me immensely in the treatment she has provided for my kidney disease, monitoring me for months until I began to feel better. I feel very confident in the care she provides.

I started going to see her about 2 yrs ago after a full blood panel showed possible kidney problems. *Found out that I was taking too many Alive (2 / day 7 days /week for knee pain) and this was causing the kidney problems. Since that time, I get my blood checked every 6 month's and adjust medication as needed. *I like the fact that she listens and takes the time to discuss my situation in detail
