      The visit was extraordinary as it was enlightening and had responded to all my questions.I was in miserable state of frustration and it all changed as I understand the difficulties I have not only recently,the informations clarified problems I had in the past as well.The doctor found out right away what vitamin defficieny I have and suggested additional treatment which hopefully will arrest and perhaps reverse the progress of neuronal distraction.He was extremely curteous and compassionate,the ideal type of doctor who is very precious to have on your side in the battle with illness.He honors the City of Hope with his presence as the way patients are treated there is nothing short of Excellency.

      Dr. Prakash is not the most charismatic guy in the world, but he really cares. He was hard for me to read at first, but once I did, I found him to be really caring and attentive. I like him a lot. Oh yeah, the guy is super smart and does his best to explain what he sees. I hope this helps someone who needs Dr. Prakash's talents.
