6/30/16 On this first visit, Dr. Kolachana took time to address my medical issues in an easily understandable way. She is thorough in verifying my health records to support her medical assessment. I was quite satisfied with her professional competence, kindness and interpersonal skills. I appreciate her apology for coming late. This office did not have the facility to view imaging records on CDs nor a secure email system for communicating with patients/families other than by phone. ATR
