I find Dr Sothinathan to be very helpful, thorough, and professional. I generally don’t kept waiting long and she spends as much time with me as I need. She’s a very calming influence, which is a plus for a doctor dealing with a patient with bad blood pressure. I highly recommend her!

Complex health issues mean that I now have ten doctors in various specialities, and the exam and consult given by Dr. Sothinathan was by far the most thorough and helpful. Therefore, I am a patient of this practice for life. Best of all, she is kind.

Dr. Sothinathan is one of the most knowledgeable and comprehensive doctors I have worked with. She listens to your issues and then connects the dots. She is not one of the boiler plate doctors. She uses her brain, which is rare these days, unfortunately.

Ease of approachability. Takes the time to provide detail information. Considers the overall health of the patient.
