    I loved the doctor that I saw today. He was sooo nice and helpful. The only reason I knocked it down in the referral section was because of the previous doctor that I saw about two years ago for a checkup.

    Dr. Dhruva has a way of making me feel completely comfortable when my nerves are running pretty high. Would highly recommend him.
