Dr. Alagar is an excellent doctor!! I have been seeing him for almost 7 years now, and he has always been very professional, caring, and sincere. He always takes the time ask me how I'm doing at the beginning of every appointment, and he always attentively listens to my questions and answers them thoroughly. He and his office staff are always punctual and organized, too.
