I waited a very long time to see a neurologist and Dr. Gandhi didn't disappoint. she was excellent. I feel confident in her abilities and appreciate her dedication to her profession. I hope that I can be in touch' with her in my current and future treatment of neurological problems.


Dr Gandhi let's me take an active role in deciding on how to proceed with treatment and medications. She is also very caring and kind.


I cannot begin to describe how wonderful and relieving my appointment with Dr. Ghandi was. She was kind and listened to all the many symptoms I have been experiencing, she completed the nerve test with a fantastic multitasking of showing concern for the discomfort and listening to all we had to say. She is the first provider I have seen (outside of my pcp) who has really gone in depth and reaching all the possibilities of a diagnosis. She is truly a gift and i almost cried with true relief for the first time in months. I cannot speak highly enough of her.


Dr. Gandhi is wonderful. She always listens to my complaints and questions. She is very patient, friendly, and professional. I would highly recommend her to anyone.


I find Dr Gandhi to be an excellent health care provider. This was my second visit and she excels in patient interaction


The visit was very productive very helpful in understanding my condition and program directions


already recommended Dr Ghandi to a colleague


I am so fortunate to have Dr. Gandhi as my neurologist. she is patient, kind and thorough. I feel like I am in the best of hands. I especially appreciated her discussion with me about my medications and how it might affect my covid immunity. she puts my mind and anxieties to rest.


She took the time to explained why she did certain test and went over the result carefully answers any question I had.


I had a very good experience!
