Good visit all around. We reviewed what was going on with my conditions and needs were addressed. Test results were reviewed the next visit, which was very quick and thorough. Referrals were given for other practitioners that I was interested in obtaining care from. I liked the thoroughness of the visits with this doctor and would go back without hesitation, and would also consider having this doctor as my GP.

Dr. Ahuja is wonderful. I got there 5 mins late due to weather and traffic. The visit went great. I was able to talk to her about all my concerns and she listened carefully and gave me her expert advice. We were able to figure out a plan to get things going to take care of my health. She also didn't rush me and I felt I was able to get all my concerns across to her.

Dr. Ahuja is very professional and personable! I had some issues with my white blood cell count and she got me back on track to being normal. I like her front office staff as well. Took care of a billing issue without me having to make serveral calls to the insurance company. I have had only two visits as a new customer but I am very happy with the service from Dr. Ahuja.

I haven't seen a doctor in three years, so I didn't really know where to start. She started asking the right questions and really took her time with me and all of my concerns. Worked great with my insurance and even made sure the suggested tests were covered. Left the office with the proper paperwork and feeling confident.

Although the wait was about 60 minutes, I would say it was worth it because she took her time with me, which I'm sure she probably does with all her patients, hence the wait. Dr. Ahuja really took her time to understand my concerns and issues. Her bedside manners were great and it felt as if she really wanted to help. I would highly recommend her, which I haven't said about any other doctor I've met with in the last 26 years.

I was a new patient and she took time to review my intake and reviewed all my medical and Family history and ordered all appropriate tests and follow up for s complete physical. Kelley the MA was Wonderful from intake to back office and has a passion for her profession! I felt very fortunate to find a wonderful Dr. Who didnt view me as a mumber but as a person and made sure all my question s or concerns were answered. As being in the medical field for years ive worked with various Drs and personalities and her bedside manner and time spent on my firsr visit made me feel secure in the knowledge that I'd be well taken care of. Ive already passed on her number to 4 other people who have been discouraged by HMOs or the lack of time their old dr spent with them, so instead of NOT going to the Drs there's a great chance they now will.

I changed insurances this month and had to find a Dr. Without much notice. I found Dr. Ahuja on ZocDoc and liked what I saw and read on her website. I was very impressed with Dr. Ahuja and her staff. She spent a lot of time really getting to know my medical history and asked great questions. I'm actually looking forward to the annual physical that I scheduled with her for next month. She seems very interested in helping me make some life changes. She was very encouraging!
