While the facility and doctor were great - clean, professional, conveniently located close to my job - I have to echothe findings of another reviewer - that this doctor was Out of Network for my Insurance despite being specifically listed as an In-Network provider for me on Zocdoc. When I arrived, there was an insurance specialist who took me to a back room to explain the situation and then proceeded to ask if I was okay with paying the consultation fee for the day and then discussing further if I required treatment. I ended up being seen but it was really inconvenient to take time out of my day and go through all the paperwork only to find out afterwards that the doctor was not in fact in-network. I let the woman know and said they should really look into updating the doctor's profile on ZocDoc because there's no disclaimer easily found and I specifically only searched for providers in my network. I tried calling the office beforehand to confirm but no one answered. Really wish this doctor was advertised correctly! Otherwise it seems like a good facility and knowledgeable doctor.

Make sure your insurance is accepted, my insurance was not accepted and was an out of network doctor. Definitely would recommend going to Dr Kavita, she took her time to explain and test for where my pain was stemming from.

Dr. Sharma is amazing! She was prompt in seeing me, answered all of my endless questions without being too technical, and was very calming during a not-very-pleasant procedure.

Although she was pleasant enough and seemed knowledgable, the appointment was rushed and I didn't feel my problem was given the attention it deserved. She basically did a five minute exam then referred me to a PT and X-ray. So overall probably only worth the co-pay for the referrals.
