We have been patients of Dr. Malhotra for 14 years. Besides her excellent knowledge of medicine, what we appreciate is the ease in which one can actually talk other and she listens to what you are saying. Dr. Malhotra has provided us with excellent care, suggestions and advice (we are seniors) to keep us healthy. She is concerned with the welfare of the whole person. Our extended family are also patients of Dr. Malhotra. We highly recommend Dr. Malhotra and we say thank you for caring about us.

I came to see Dr. Malhotra on the advice of 2 patients I came to know in the Rheumatology office I was working in. If you're not completely pleased with your present primary care provider, you need to switch! I'm so glad I did, my quality of life has improved so much since starting to see Dr. Malhotra. I recommend her every chance I get!
