Dr. Divakaran was recommended to me by a neighbor. I truly loved his patients and explaining everything to me easily. He took his time, answered my questions. It was the best one on one doctor appointments I have had lately. Don't let his go. We've just started the testing and I don't want to lose him.

Both Dr. Davakaran and his physician's assistant did an excellent job of talking out the issues and coming to a good long term plan for a healthy outlook. Actually enjoyed the visit. The computer was NOT the focal point. I was the focal point. That is a tremendous step in the right direction. I look forward to my next visit. Your staff has done an excellent job at improving service to the patient. Thank you for a job well done.
