What People Say About Dr. Vikram Prabhu, MD
Reply
I have been a patient of Dr. Prabhu since 2006. I trust him implicitly. He truly takes the time to listen to his patients. He is extremely knowlegable in his areas of specialty but if he feels there is another doctor that would be better suited for your needs he will not hesitate to refer you. He has an excellent bedside manner, which is extremely important to me. He has a very caring and compassionate disposition.
