    Mar 19, 2019
    Dr. Makkar is an example of what a doctor should be. He is very knowledgeable, patient, thorough, compassionate. He was my mom's doctor for over 10 years and even when she was seen by him in last months of her life we found nothing but understanding, compassion and knowledge. Thank you dr. Makkar.
