Dr. Malhotra & her practice are a wonderful find for me!!! I have always feared going to the dr. until I found Dr. Malhotra. She's kind, puts you at ease when she walks into the room, & takes the time to really listen to what you're saying. Dr. Malhotra will treat you with dignity & respect - whether you're there for just a common cold or if you're feeling depressed or anxious, etc. I think she is the best in our area & I highly recommend her & her wonderful staff!!

I absolutely love Dr. Malhotra. She is very down to earth in talking to me about anything that I may have medical questions concerning. She is positive in her approach to preventive health and is proactive in searching for medical answers when I have had a concern. She takes the time to talk to me about whatever is on my mind. Her office always seems very concerned with making sure that I have the very best care. I so appreciate her and all of those who work in her office.
