    I’ve been a patient of Dr Majithia for nearly six years, and I couldn’t recommend anyone more than him. He is caring, thorough and knowledgeable with a warm bed side manner. He is almost always on time and yet never seems rushed. I can’t speak highly enough of him.

    I love Dr. Majithia. However, his nurse can be condescending. Has very little compassion. It’s so hard to talk with her.
