    How was your appointment with Dr. Prakasam?

    Feb 23, 2019
    Dr P is kind and very competent. The care for my son and for my niece was very thorough. All test results were explained completely. Bad news was delivered with compassion and empathy. The provider was extremely busy, but was hustling through his patients in good spirits and with total willingness to answer any and all questions. Highly recommend this practice. I am also a healthcare provider.
