I really shouldn't comment because our visit was more of an interview than a treatment visit. I moved to RR recently and am looking for a new doctor. I've decided to stay with Dr. Kathpalia.

this was a first time visit with an emergency level problem. The tests and results are a problem because immediate symptoms mimic a very common problem. The real problem is actually a quite rare condition. He ran through the usual tests and when results came back took appropriate action. A very pleasant doctor and I would certainly go to him again.
