Dr. Vikram exceeded my expectations. He was attentive, knowledgeable, and detail oriented. He documented everything I said about my condition and gave me feedback that was not cookie cutter or repetitive. Generally, the wait time was reasonable and the receptionist was friendly. Only been to this office 3 times but each time has been an encouraging experience. I guess that's why I have kept coming back!
