My doctor retired last month. This was the first time I have visited with this doctor. I was a little apprehensive since I had had my former doctor for almost 30 years. However, the doctor put me at ease assured me that he would be glad to be my primary care physician if I so desire to listen to all my concerns and talk to me about all my test results. It was a very good appointment and I left there and I happy mood.

Dr. Sankoorikal is amazing. he is patient, humble, kind, and highly knowledgeable. When I first came to the clinic, I was looking for a good primary care Dr. I was sceptible because I had so many health issues, I didn\'t think a Dr wanted to help me. I went to Dr S with 14 different medication and I was very obese. Over the few years I have seen Dr. S, he has reduced my medications to 5. I have seen a nutrition, and a physical therapist. Dr. S has regulated my BP with medications that have not caused me negative side effects and I have gone from 275lbs to 263lbs. I can even walk-in and the nurses will take my BP for me as often as I feel I need it checked. Dr. S and his staff are Angels! I hope they stay at this facility forever!

I believe wholeheartedly that Dr. Sankoorikal is a good provider. However, at this last appointment I could feel his frustration with me and my medical conditions: The message received/perceived at that encounter was pretty much figure out what you need out there with the doctors that are treating you. Let them handle your FMLA papers and we can follow up in 6 month. Even though I will be having a nerve ablation for my back pain in 4 weeks, left Carpal Tunnel repair ion 3/25 & right Carpal Tunnel 2 weeks later. I left his office feeling sad and confused.
