I am so glad Dr. Krishnan is my primary care provider. She always gets back to me within a day when I have a question. She explains things very clearly and has a wonderful bedside manner. Very kind person who seems to take a genuine interest in her patients. I always feel that all my concerns are addressed and my questions answered. I don't see her very often as I am generally healthy however it is always a pleasure to see her and I am appreciative of the practice in general as everyone is so responsive. Thank you!
