“I was referred to Dr. Gupta by my primary and am so thankful! As a new patient [I work in oncology clinical research field and work with many physicians] I did wait to see her for my initial appointment/consult; however, the incredible care provided by Dr. Gupta most certainly outweighed any initial delay. Not only does she take the time to sincerely listen to your concerns, she provides a very thorough comprehensive evaluation and works with you to determine an appropriate plan of care. Furthermore, she is the only medical provider that I’ve met that conducts a remote visit– so you can have a virtual face to face appointment without leaving your home! Thank you Dr. Gupta!!” – Terri Loree

“Everyone has been great! From the Dr to the clerk at the front desk. I have had to wait a time or two. But overall my experience has been great!” – Paul Martinez
“It’s a busy office, but my initial visit from beginning to end only took a total of 45 minutes. Most of that time was spent seeing the doctor. For a first visit, that wasn’t a very long wait time. Everyone was very pleasant and I was please with Dr. V. I understand that the doctor who founded the clinic has retired, and with that kind of change, there is always a period of confusion and chaos. It seems that they have that under control. I would not let reviews about the office staff stop me from giving the clinic a try especially since the doctors seem to be well liked. It may be that thee staff has ironed out all the wrinkles by now.” – NA Weaver
