He is an excellent doctor,
Ive never talked to him yet when he hasn't been upbeat and positive. We go over any testing, we talk about any changes that are needed and agree on a plan. On my end Im taking notes of same. Our video visits are productive and seem to be the perfect platform to use if I don't have to have further testing. We decide on the next visit and after our video meeting ends, his nurse never fails to call with to set up the next appointment. I love the efficiency of Dr. Pai and his staff. They have a very good routine.
