She is a very patient NP, and she made me feel very comfortable when telling her medical information, and asking questions. I’m generally a very nervous person when it comes to going to the doctor, but her professionalism was very calming for me. I highly recommend.

NP Somani was absolutely wonderful. I was seen almost immediately and she was very engaged in my visit. Not only did she spend time on asking questions and listening to me for the reason I was there, but she addressed twoother issues that she saw through my health history paperwork. I will definitely be seeing her again. I can't recommend her enough.
