Not sure why someone mentioned Dr. Gowda to be insensitive and judgemental. She does provide "tough love", but that is exactly what the doctor ordered! I am glad that she provided me with clarity on my condition and a good treatment/approach.

Dr Gowda is amazing!! I recently went through a serious health crisis and Dr Gowda was with me every step of the way. When I was unresponsive in the hospital she took extra time with my family to make sure they understood my treatment plan. I will be forever grateful for the care I received from Dr Gowda and her team.

This doctor is absolutely terrible. A mean person who doesn't care about her patients. Waste of time and money. Stay away. She is judgemental and not smart. The only thing that makes this place somewhat fine is the staff that works under the doctor.

It's rare that you find doctors that are as caring, attentive, and intelligent as Dr. Gowda. She had been recommended by a friend and I am so glad that I was able to meet with her.

I found Dr Gowda very responsive to my presenting problem. She was attentive and answered my many questions. She also quickly diagnosed the situation as I had already been a couple of weeks misdiagnosed. I will be making another appointment with her as soon as possible for a new problem.
