Good overall first visit. Treatment was logical and he did listen and ask questions.

Knowledgeable and pleasant. Parking rates are ridiculous.
HE WAS GREAT MADE ME FEEL LIKE EVERYTHING IS GOING TO BE LOOK INTO
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 results of 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 one room 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!!!
He was really lovely, and very thorough! I am very lucky to have found him. Staff were incredibly nice as well. Definitely keeping him as my primary care physician.
Never in my life have I been in such a friendly office, everyone was so helpful and kind.
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 that required 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.
He was great. It was a quick and easy experience.
