Thank you.
Dr Korhari and staff are a wonderful well oiled machine. They treat you with respect and genuine concern for your medical situation. I couldn't ask for a better team of care providers.
The Visit was very good the only issue that I had was a quint log on to the virtual but doctor kathari Called me instead and we chatted over the phone so it was very good I have nothing bad to say everything is always amazing with Dr. his staff
The doctor was one of the best I've ever had. It's not easy being referred to the cancer center, but he put me at ease and really took the time to explain and show me what was going on. His care and compassion really made me feel respected.
