I was a little hesitant at first (due to the wait) but once we met the Doctor, any apprehensions went away. He was nice, informative, and genuinely seemed interested in caring for my Mother. He ordered immediate testing, went over resultsof the ones he could (that were immediate) and gave me referrals for additional therapists/x-rays. All in all, we were very pleased.

I am amazed by the amount of time Dr. Dandillaya spent with me. Never have I had a physical that was so attentive and inquisitive. While most physicians seem to overschedule their patients and then multiplex their time running from oneroom to another, this was the complete opposite experience. Even the wait to get in was less than 2 minutes after I finished filling out my paperwork (in my experience, most doctors seem to have a complete disregard for patients' time). The nursing staff and the phlebotomist were were very friendly, and thorough. Couldn't be more impressed!!!

Dr. Dandillaya did an excellent job of explaining all the tests that would need to be run for my annual physical. I also appreciated the extra time he took with me when he noticed something on one of the tests thatrequired further testing. His staff is amazing! They treated me well, making me laugh and keeping me comfortable while taking blood. I barely felt the pinch. If you're looking for a doctor who takes his time with you and shows genuine concern for your health and one who answers your questions throughly, I would highly recommend selecting Dr. Ram Dandillaya.

Very approachable, took the time to answer all of my questions, and really helped me be an educated consumer of my healthcare. I have been to many many doctors over the years in New York, the Midwest and also Southern California and Dandillaya is top notch compared to the rest.
