I like Dr. Lodha, however, word of warning on the x-ray tech - she became very nasty when told I was recovering from pneumonia and said that .... now she would have to wash her hands before the next patient! Honestto God she said that!! Told her I was no longer contagious after going through two rounds of heavy anti-biotics and she told me she "didn't buy that - you aren't done with pneumonia until your lungs are clear and you're off oxygen". Where did she get her MD and does she know if I am on oxygen all the time? I felt ridiculed and put-down.

My experience with Dr. Lodha and the staff at Panorama has been amazing. I received personalized care from the day my accident occurred to being released yesterday. Dr. Lodha makes it a point to answer individual questions and to explain answersto questions in a way that is easy to understand. It is obvious that he cares about the full recovery of his patients. I feel very fortunate to have had him as my surgeon and am looking forward to returning to all of my previous physical activities!

Clients coming to Panorama Clinic should be prepared for a very busy clinic and check in-most of the time! The people behind the desks are efficient though and try to make the check-in as pleasant as possible. The office visit withmy Dr. was organized and thorough. He summed up my situation for me quickly and sent me on my way with a plan and follow up instructions. I was very, very pleased. BJ

This was a follow up appointment for my June 14th hand surgery. We were taken back to the exam room at my appointment time by a nurse, Barbara. My dressing and splint were carefully removed. Then we were taken back toanother room so a new cast could be put on my hand and arm. Dr. Lodha came in at that time,checked my surgery site and explained exactly what he did and why. He answered all my questions and another follow up was scheduled in 4 weeks. The tech came in, I think his name was Randy, removed my stitches and put on my cast. Everyone was professional and pleasant. It is always comforting to know that I am always treated with respect and any anxieties I may have regarding a procedure are addressed in a professional manner.

The Panorama practice is huge. I had a morning apt and because it was my first, I came early and spent some time filling out info on a tablet. My apt was at 9: 40a, I finished my info about 9:35and was shown into an exam room at 9:46. Dr Lodha and his assistant came in about 5 mins later. I needed a hand x-ray, which was quickly done down the hall (place is massive!). The only real wait was after the x-ray, which was about 20 min. Dr. Lodha was very professional, real, pragmatic and didn't 'rush' our conversation (even though I think he had lots of patients to see!) I was very happy with my overall experience.

Dr, Lodha is the absolute BEST - a consummate professional with a caring and compassionate "bedside manner". He has been my doctor for two different incidences and the outcome has been the very best I could have hoped for. I wouldnot hesitate to recommend this gifted physician for any hand or wrist injury care, or surgery and after care.

Odd to me that I had a follow up, but the doctor did not even examine my wrist, pain tolerance, or range of motion...didn't even have me take my brace off, just asked me how it felt. Well, I don't knowbecause I have had it in a brace 24/7 for 4 weeks and it's been immobilized. Instructions were to wean myself off brace and come back to see him if it was not better for possible surgery. Only after I asked about PT exercises did he refer me.

I found Dr. Lodha to be a great practitioner, spot on diagnosis and treatment. He educated me on the nature of my medical problem, reading xrays with me and laying out the treatment options. He has an engaging personality and mademe feel relaxed during the injection process. The best compliment I can give is I want him to be my surgeon when it comes time.
