Patient Comments (4)
in Anaheim, CA |
Dr. Charu has cared for me for the past 5 years. She is an excellent listener and a very caring doctor. She does not put herself above her patients therefore making her a person who is capable of explaining to them their medical condition in terms that are simple to understand; only a person who loves his or her profession is capable of doing this. I would recommend Dr. Charu to anyone who is looking for a doctor who can empathize with the pain he or she is feeling.

Dr. Charu is a very informed and responsive doctor. Super smart, caring and returns calls (even after hours). The woman is a machine and I trust her with my health and well-being. She gets a five-star rating from me!
