Dr. Gulati started out very well with me. As time progressed I found he had an attitude when questioned about things. The final straw for me became him risking my health for bloodwork during the covid 19 outbreak. Then when I was able to get it, he didn't have the right tests in the system and the trip resulted with me passing out and throwing up on myself

Dr. Gulati is a blessing to my mother. Her prior Nephrologist was cold and made us feel like there was no hope for my mother (82), who has been in stage III-IV for over 27+ years. When Dr. Gulati read my mother's chart, he was able to identify "what else" we could do. His bedside matter is impeccable. He took his time with my mother. He listened. Asked her relevant questions. Got her involved. Gave her hope that he would use/do everything in his expertise to care for her. PRICELESS!!
