Dr Kothari and his staff make you feel like they really care about you as a person. They addressed all my concerns and let me know they are available if there are any changes in how I feel.
This was a lot to take in and totally caught me off guard. I never saw an oncology doctor before but I like him and his staff.
Great Doctor!!!!!!!!
Getting an appointment took me almost 3 weeks of phone calls before someone actually scheduled my appointment. Other than that everything went well and I really like Dr. Kothari.
Excellent experience throughout the entire process, facility and every person we encountered - made the anxiety of a visit to the center so much easier
