Dr. Kaul was great, but the office was awful. It was really crowded, the receptionists weren't friendly, and I had to wait over an hour to be seen!

If you're looking for a gyn that is really wonderful when you see her but not looking for any follow up and the worst response times ever she is for you. If you happen to need her to clarify lab reportsor call you back if you have a question be prepared to wait a few weeks or be put off to a nurse or admin who might give you a call back after a few days. She shouldn't be taking on new patients. She doesn't even have time to call back.

This doctor is not a nice person. She cares about maximizing profit and thus minimize time spent with patients. Go elsewhere.

Such a sweet beautiful nurturing soul. I haven't had that wonderful of a doctor's office visit in a long time. She really cares and is not judgmental. I couldn't recommend her more!

Dr Poornima was fantastic. Very helpful and consultative. Wish every doctor had the same bedside manner as her - I'm always hesitant to try new physicians but she was excellent.

Dr. Kaul is fantastic! The office is very busy so it was about a half hour before I was seen, but totally worth the wait. Dr. Kaul is incredibly kind- she made what can be a stressful appointment feel 1000 timeseasier. She is professional, thorough, and made me feel heard and taken care of. I would highly, highly, highly recommend her if you're looking for a great GYN!
