Monrovia, CA |
I really like Dr Prema. I feel comfortable asking her any question. She thorough and very caring. The only thing i didn't care for was my original Appt. was for 8:30 and was asked if I could move it to 9 then i waited for 1 hour from waiting room to seeing her. I think there were two other patients before me so they had to wait even longer than I did.

The worest experience of my life. My concern was different they have performed some other test and have given a huge bill, the support team I see to horrible they have literally shouted on me while I was in call.
in Glendale, CA |
I went in with severe PMS and an itchy, crusty spot on my skin. After Interrupting me constantly as I described symptoms, She refered me to a special pharmacy that took a *ton* of my time and money. It turned out all I needed to do was cut soy out of my diet. Soy acts as estrogen in the body. And that itchy spot? She never tested it. She took one look and said she was SURE it was folliculitis. She was wrong. It was an STI.

It took me a while to find the right doctor and I'm so happy I found her Dr.Prema Kothandaraman, MD is really professional and respectful. She listens to you and listens to what u need and does everything she can to do things right

Dr. Prema made my birthing experience a terrible one. She is a bully who, in my opinion, would like all births to be C-sections. Please do not make her your doctor if you want a natural birth. Oh, she's fine for routine tests--pleasant, even. But when you disagree with her she turns on you like a pit bull. Her insensitivity, at the time when I felt the most vulnerable, contributed greatly to my post-partum depression.
