    Doctor Rudra is wonderful, calm, knowledgeable and a good listener.

  • Feb 3, 2022

    Dr. Rudra called me personally about my appointment (that was changed). She wanted to make sure there was no confusion. During my visit in clinic Dr. Rudra addressed all my concerns and questions. She did not appear in a hurry. She made me feel that she was there for me. She was compassionate.

    It was very hard for me to hear what will be required to make me well again. I have followed up with a portal text and am waiting for a response.
