I was hospitalized for a seizure that could not be explained. As it happens, I had not seen Dr. Gowda for 2 years (I had been seeing her Nurse Practioner). When Dr. Gowda made her rounds the next morning, the first thing she said to me was "Jeanne, you've gained some weight." Which was true. Now, I could have become angry/hurt by her observation, but I just kept thinking wow, I haven't seen her in two years, yet she remembers that I was thinner. She has amazing recall, is an excellent doctor.

It looks like lately Dr Gowda has lost her interest in the profession. She doesn't show intutive interest in the patients conditions no more. So, seeing some other provider and seeing gowda is the same. She used to be a great doctor.

I would not recommend this Dr. She has no real clue when it comes to her patients there is no personalized care and the office staff will tell you they've made insurance related calls and referrals, upon investigation with my insurance provider and or referral doctors I find out more than once that they never actually did contact anyone. They've told me services weren't covered that I found were actually covered when I investigated myself. It's frustrating and shows a real lack of any concern.

For years, Dr. Gowda has been an excellent doctor for both my parents. She has gone above and beyond in helping them, and we truly appreciate her excellent health care. She professional, compassionate, competent. She is a hard worker… I’ve seen her visit my parents in the hospital and rehab early in the morning, and I’ve also accompanied my parents on many appointments in her office during the day. She takes time to listen and then advise. She honestly cares. This past year was particular

I really love Dr. Gowda as my doctor. Not only is she professional, she is personable and takes her time with me to make sure I feel confident about my health concerns. The office staff is very accommodating, and get back to me quickly when I leave a message for Dr Gowda. I finally feel like I'm on the right track to taking care of everything.

Worst experience ever , I am sick since four days can't leave bed , headache , cough , They a rude over the phone , more business than helping patients , i stuck in urgent care for 30 minutes cause the stuff called her asking for referral without giving her my info, so she called me giving me so much hard time as if I am her slave not patient ... This will not go easy and I will report that to everyone I know ,of course that my last time deal with her . The at the end she hang up the phone

I hear more people compliment her than I do complain. Reading these reviews makes me sad some people feel the way they do. Yes the office is busy, and yes she is not going to prescribe pain meds to anyone and everyone. But she is an amazing doctor with a caring heart. There is no doubt in my mind that she goes above and beyond to make sure she is doing all that can when it comes to my health. I recommend everyone I know to her. And I can say she saved my aunts life the first time she saw her.
