I have been a patient of Dr Pillai for 15 years she is the very best internal medicine doctor I have ever had extremely knowledgeable and compassionate I have overlapping diseases and she is always aware of them and as an ...I feel she is a great MD thank her

I usually have a long wait. However, this appointment was for 1:30. I was not seen by the Doctor until 3:30. causing me to cancel an appointment that I had at 4:00. My time is as valuable as any Doctors in this practice. if I was 2 1/2 hours late, I wouldn't have been seen, and I still would have been charged. I don't mind a small wait, but this was ridiculous!!

Sometimes the wait for treatment/appointment can be a bit longer than 15 minutes, however it's understandable because of the attention that Dr Pillai gives during a visit, I love MY CHART! It's a great tool for communication.
