Dr. Vakharia has been my primary care physician for the past five years. He has always shown genuine concern for his patients. He and his office staff are friendly and quite competent. His lab technicians draw blood with results available the very next day. Other lab tests can be done in the office with immediate results. I have referred him in the past to friends and family because I have compete confidence in his skills. I give him my strongest recommendation. Judith Balog

Dr. Vakharia makes direct communication with the patient which is great rare quality in a doctor. Having said that I am considering dropping this doctor for two reasons: he prefers to keep all in house and is reluctant to make referrals when needed and more importantly his lab technicians are rude and hurried and won't hesitate to slam the needle in your vein to draw blood! This has happened to me and was horrendous-my carrier said I could ask him 4 a referral 4 lab work.ill ask him for it!
