Verified Patient Reviews
I really appreciate that she has Saturday hours which makes it easier for my work schedule. She also was able to take my blood on the spot so I didn't have to go to another lab and wait to have my blood drawn. She really listens and makes sure she has all the latest information from my other tests and doctors to make informed decisions.
She did not take me at my scheduled time. I was a new patient. She took an existing patient and told the receptionist to tell me to come back in an hour. The receptionist told me they had already changed the appointment online, but had no obligation to call me personally since I had made the appointment via Zocdoc, the online appointment service. This is funny since Zocdoc asks for a number you can be reached at if the Dr needs to reach you. Bottom line, if you are a new patient , expect to be treated like garbage if a regular patient needs help.. Dr Pallavi and her office were very unprofessional. I was in excruciating pain and they didn’t care.
I have only visited with her one time for a physical but I had a great experience. She spent a lot of time understanding my current health issues and coming up with a treatment plan. Since she is an active athlete I believe she "gets it" when a former athlete is dealing with sports related pain. She seemed to have a great understanding of body mechanics which is what I was looking for. I plan on making her my primary doctor moving forward.
Dr. Belur is a fantastic doctor who is attentive and takes time to listen. She does not rush through any examinations, is very personable and has excellent bedside manor. I would highly recommend her to friends and family.
Dr. Belur was excellent. She was on time, she was very attentive, and she was clearly tailoring my visit for me as she learned more about my medical history. She took time to answer all my questions. I'll be going back!
Great place. There hardly any wait, they were ready for me as soon as I finished filing in paperwork. It was great that I didn't feel like they were rushing me along but actually paid attention and asked questions. Very happy.
Dr. Belur was excellent! This was my first time visiting her practice. I was seen as soon as I completed the paperwork. She was thorough in her evaluation and took time to carefully listen to what I had to say. She also explained things in a manner that was easy to comprehend. I found her attention to detail outstanding. I am glad to have her as my doctor. She is the best.
Very helpful and such a nice doctor
Nice doctor. Will go back.
Great, and very sweet :) She made me feel very comfortable and explained everything she was doing. I think I finally found my primary care physician!
Dr. Belur is very perceptive and wants to put the patient at ease. She doesn't overlook anything.
I enjoyed Dr. Belur. She was welcoming and knowledgeable. She was apologetic for the delay in seeing me, as there was an issue with a previous patient.
I only just started seeing her before having to move out of state, but the few times I did she was awesome, and very helpful and understanding.
Very professional and competent physician. Great bedside manner as well. Would highly recommend!
The manner in which Dr. Belur conducted herself made her seem harsh and disinterested.

Very nice experience. Doctor is knowledgeable and reassuring
Very nice and professional.
Dr. Belur listens well and pays attention to what I have to say as a patient. She is compassionate without being cloying and business-like without being cold.
As a first time appointment with a new doctor, my Mom thought the exam was less than cursory. The doctor only listened to her heart and lungs and performed no other examination. No gown was provided either. The doctor listened to my Mom's complaints and took a decent amount of time with her and also addressed her concerns. I guess this must be the "new" standard of care with what's happening in medicine but we were expecting more in terms of a first time exam.
Very sweet and informative (explained everything).
It was excellent. Service I will recommende
Great. Asked questions for history, answered my questions, explained steps to be taken and even googled products that can help. The first doc that used the fantabolous power of the internet to demonstrate something. Left me with a sample. Productive meeting.
My visit went great. The doctor was very concerned and caring.
She really is a great physician. And very honest and caring.
