Dr. Shailaja Malhotra has been my primary physician for many years. She is a caring professional who always listens to what I say and takes time to discuss any issues, including those that are not medical - never rushing to the next appointment. I feel that she values me as a person, not simply as a patient.

Essentially just a meds check follow up. However, Dr. Malhotra is always extremely thorough and efficient as well as showing genuine concern for her patients. She truly personalizes her care for each patient, never assuming anyone is like anyone else. Highly recommend her!!

I love this office! Dr Malhotra actually takes the time to fully listen to me instead of just pushing me out the door like I e had with previous doctors. There is very little wait time to be seen and everyone in this office is amazing!

I have never been disappointed when visiting Dr. M. Be it for a specific problem or just to renew my medications, she always takes the time to listen to my comments or questions and then thoroughly answers my queries. She always asks about my conditions and concerns as relates to my previous visits. I could not ask for a better primary care physician.

Dr. "M" always displays compassion with sound advice for better health with every visit. She makes me feel like a valued human being rather than another number in the health care machine. I am grateful to have her as my physician.

Dr. Malhotra has been my primary care physician for about 15 years now. I have been impressed with her thorough examinations and genuine interest in all aspects of my health. With a family history of health issues, including heart disease, I feel that my risk for these problems is lower, because of her excellent care and preventative measures. I heartily recommend her as an experienced, knowledgeable, and caring professional health care provider.
