I was 15 minutes late and he still saw me. He's very friendly and knowledgable. He is conservative in his approach and doesn't order unnecessary tests

Horrible bedside manner. Seemed annoyed with everything I said and dismissed all concerns I had. I suspect some or all of the positive reviews on here are fake.

I saw Dr. Gandhi for an illness not an annual physical. I thought it was a cold but it turned out to be a sinus infection. He described the antibiotics he was going to prescribe and provided detailed instructions for taking care of the sinus infection.

Very disappointed..my first appointment wasn't that great .but I was oh well the dr probably got somehow overwhelmed cause I have lots of chief complaints. I can tell he seen irritated. By the way he talks really loud to me hecan get an attitude really quickly. My 2nd time seen him was more them enough for not returning Bad experience instead of feeling good I left in worse mode and sick ...again not returning Changing my physician on my insurance card
