Dr. Kandel always responds to my calls to the office and test results... things like that... personally, often after business hours if it becomes necessary. She stays on top of things with my health and often acts as an intermediary with other drs. concerning my health issues and concerns, and I love that she does that so readily. I am so happy to have her as my PCP. Office staff, including PAs and RNs, are excellent care-givers as well. Everyone is always courteous, professional and personable and willing to address any questions/concerns that I have.
