My care provider Dr. Rika Bajra is 15 min late and I need to wait for her in the call. And she felt disinterested while I was showing her my skin rash. I wasn’t provided medication that would heal me from the viral infection and throat pain I was having apart from over the counter pain reliever.

Without question, Dr. Bajra is the best doctor I've had as an adult.
First time meeting with Dr. Bajra; appointment was for my annual physical. She was extremely patient and thorough, going meticulously through my medical and family history, addressing a number of questions I had, and suggesting a range of treatment options.
Excellent provider. Very kind and thorough.
First time we have seen Dr. Bajra. My husband and I thought she was excellent.
Took a lot of time listening when she really didn't have too.
Dr. Bajra consistently provides the very best medical service, advice, and treatment plan going forward of all the doctors I've had experience with. Prior to the visit, she had familiarized herself with the symptoms of my case and treatment provided by another doctor and dermatologist who had seen me previously. After examining me and getting the latest symptoms I was presenting, she setup the tests I needed to have taken and provided feedback on the test results within a short time after the lab results were available. In addition to the physiological remedies that are provided, it is psychologically beneficial whenever she provides treatment and that sometimes can be under appreciated.
Have recommended Dr. Bajra - she was very thorough & explained "next steps" so there was a clear understanding. Excellent doctor.
Dr. Bajra is an excellent Family Medicine doctor. She was exceptionally thorough in her explanation of the results of my blood work during my annual physical exam.

Dr. Bajra is very thorough, carefully reviews medical history and lab tests, is an extremely good communicator with patients, and consistently provides solid follow-up advice or initiates connections with specialists when needed so the medical issue is resolved. I've found these traits to be consistent with her over the years she has been my primary physician.
Dr. Bajra was incredibly attentive, detailed, and thorough. She spent 45 minutes with me going over my medical history, asking and answering questions, examining me, and making sure all of my referrals and testing was ordered for my continued care.
