He was thoughtful and thorough, and he didn’t rush anything even though I was in and out and 20 minutes.

This was my first visit to Dr. Pesala's office and it was wonderful! I came with my one-year-old dreading the wait among other things, but there was no wait at all! The office was amazing and Dr. Pesala, as well as his support staff, were incredible. So happy to have found them!

Was in and out in 30 min for an annual physical/checkup. However, didn’t feel rushed and all my questions were answered with options for referrals and next steps. Felt at ease and would will come back to Dr. Naveen again.

I found Dr. Pesala very last minute as I had to change to a state health insurance plan recently and my previous PCP suddenly didn’t cover the plan I chose. It was very easy to book an appointment with Dr. Pesala and I was even seen early! I did most of my paperwork and had labs sent in before I got to the office but I was very concerned that I would not be able to get urgent medication I needed prescribed to me during the visit because of my rushed appointment to see him. It was the most painless, simple doctor’s visit in quite some time and he called my prescription into the pharmacy as soon as I left. Very grateful to have found him and would recommend!

Arrived a little more than 30 minutes early and was called into my consultation after about a 5 minute wait. Staff was very friendly and directly to the point. As a new client through Zocdoc, I had to fill out minimal paperwork and after Dr. Pesala asked me if he could help me with anything else multiple times, I was done with my appointment before the actual start time. Couldn't be happier with the service that I was given.

Today I had my third annual physical with Dr. Pesala. 1. He is timely, I have never been seen after the start of my appointment time. 2. He remember me and details of my medical history that I told him at my very first visit two years ago. 3. His physical exam and plans are thorough and collaborative. 4. Finally, his bedside manner is perfect. I will be back next year for my fourth annual physical.
