Dr. Acharya has been my OB/Gyne physician for over 35 years. He is an excellent Doctor who is not only knowledgeable about ob/gyne issue, but he is also caring and compassionate. He delivered my daughter 20 years ago, and she is now his patient. That tells you how confident I am in his ability to perform his job. Thank you Dr. Acharya

Been going to Dr Acharya for years. Great doctor who listens and thinks wholistically. I only said that I wouldn't recommend him to everyone because he is very far from me and most of my family. When I needed a referral for someone though, I called him to ask for one.
