A great doctor, she is great, takes the time and explains very well what is going on with your medical issue. Always smiling and courteous. Her staff is nice and friendly. The waiting time is usually less than 10 minutes. The location is good. I do recommend Dr. Malhotra to all my family and friends.
Midlothian, VA |
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.
