Dr D has treated me for MRSA for 12 years. We get it cleared up, then it shows up again as much as 2 years later. I am sitting in an ER as I write this with another breakout. His staff will get me in tomorrow so that Dr D takes charge of my case once again. Great bedside manners. Great Dr. Great man. His nurse Linda is awesome to work with. She adds so much to his practice. What an asset.

Dr Dhoulakia was assigned to treat a staph infection in my nasal passages and he provided the right combination of antibiotics. I was able to overcome a recurring staph infection because of his care! Great doctor that I highly recommend

The best care I've received yet. Personable, friendly, funny and very knowledgeable. Kept me informed and gave me options in my care. From my 1st visit he assured me he would make me well and take care of my needs. He has kept his word. Highly recommended.

He was the most arrogant and rude Doctor I have ever come across. Actually one of the worst experiences I've had with any person ever. Doctors should be held just as responsible for the interaction with other people as they are regarded for their knowledge and experience in their field. I'm sure he is a very knowledgeable doctor but the way he treated me in my time of need and my vulnerable situation his behavior as a man was despicable
