Dr. Vinay. and his staff can not found out the correct diagnosis, and prescribe the appropriate treatment (even in simple cases). For example, when I had a sore throat, I had to come to the doctor three times and eventually he sent me to a specialist.

Extremely knowledgeable and a great diagnostician. His staff is very friendly and organized. Very rarely do I go see a doctor with such minimal wait.
