He wanted me to go through certain steps before treating me. That made him very professional to me. He didn't let me rush into medication right away. I'm on medication now, and will see this doctor again. I have a coupleof goals in my care that I'm sure to reach with this doctor.

Fantastic Doctor. Thoughtful, patient, and kind. He takes a thorough assessment of your medical history. Listens with empathy, and doesn't suggest a course of treatment until he has all the facts. I don't think I've ever had a doctor of this caliber before.

Great person and doctor. I don't usually write reviews, but Dr. Gowda and staff are very understanding and nice, aside from knowing your stuff, this is a big plus. I had questions about some billing that was new to me andcame in to ask about it, after explaining to me what each part of the bill was, the receptionist helped call insurance and Dr. Gowda personally spoke with Insurance company to try and clear any misunderstandings I had.

Change my prior PCP due to waiting an insanely long period of time even with an appointment. Here I didn't have that problem, the doctor was patient and listened to what I had to say. I have only had two visitsso far, but both visits were very pleasant and I shall be going here for my medical needs from now on.

I don't think he was competent to treat what I went to see him for. It was a complete waste of 2 hours. I needed advice/help on managing sleeping issues. We agreed on a dosage. 5min after I left the office,he called to inform that he would unilaterally reduce that to less thatn 25% of what was agreed on. I understand if he thinks that is the best course of treatment and discussed/agreed that in the office. However he did not do so and I think my symptoms are bad enough that its not going to address the issue. I would have wanted him to have this conversation with me BEFORE we left the office and billed insurance. Completely unprofessional of him Also gave a bunch of other random, pointless advice even after being told I was already doing what he said and it was not helping.
