Dr. K is one of the best! He is what all doctors should be like. I actually feel like a patient with him. Most doctors these days are spread too thin and rushed. I love Dr. K's thoroughness and genuine concern.

Dr. RAKESH KUMAR KATHPALIA is very understanding and listens to my health concerns. He engages in dialog with me as to what is the best course of treatment and allows me to decide whether I want to go with his suggested treatment. I can ask him any medically related question and he holds no punches. I like that and ultimately I can make up my mind to take treatment or not!!

This provider demonstrated a lack of compassion a care provider should illuminate, especially when establishing a trusting relationship with patients. This provider appeared to be inconvenienced by providing care and annoyed with questions. The care provider is a poor representation of the company/establishment.
