      I went back to Dr. Bandukwala regarding some thyroid level concerns even when he was no longer on my insurance plan and I had to pay more for the visit. His warm, inviting demeanor creates a comfortable atmosphere to deal with the issues at hand. He spends all the time it takes to hear your concerns, gives analytical input for possible options and is willing to be collaborative. I cannot say enough good about his style and knowledge and wish he could be my primary doctor!!

      Dr. B is the most intellligent, caring endocrinologist I have ever worked with. I have struggled with thyroid issues for over 16 years. I found Dr. B over 11 years ago and am a lifelong patient I drive an hour one way to see him. He is the only endocrinologist I will ever see. He goes above and beyond, and treats you with respect, He is always willing to listen to your fears and issues, and works with you on every level possible to make your life better.

      Dr Bundakwala was the only doctor who took my concerns seriously, and was able to accurately diagnose me with my medical condition. I highly recommend this doctor. The only downside is the horrible front desk staff. :( But it is worth it to put up with them to see the doctor!
