Dr. Kanchan was a very knowledgeable, well researched physician who obviously has years of experience under her belt. She took the time to explain what she was thinking after she had done a thorough evaluation. She did so after accommodating my schedule and meeting me on a weekend so that I did not have to miss work. Great medicine and a great experience.

I was ecstatic that she was able to see me the very next day as I had struggled all day to try find a doctor unsuccessfully. The entire session really impressed me. She did a full intake and evaluation of me and we had a great discussion. I was not expecting much from a first session, and was in fact paying out of pocket but it was worth it! I felt like I got 10 sessions worth of information and thoughts about myself in such a short amount of time. I was pleasantly surprised and very grateful and feel much better too!
