I have recommended Dr. Pillai to several of my co-workers. She is a wonderful physician and her staff is always willing to answer any questions I have before I even see Dr. Pillai. I cannot compliment her enough. If I have to wait to see her, I would!

I think Dr Pillai is amazing. She is caring, friendly and always takes the time to listen to any concerns and explain everything as much as needed. My only complaint is the wait time. I have waited 1.5 to 2 hours in the past. That's borderline crazy. But she is worth the wait.

Having an 8:00 am appointment, everything moved in a timely manner.

I am so frustrated that I made this appointment for the earliest they would give me in the day and it still was over 45 minutes of waiting in the waiting room followed by 35 minutes of waiting in a paper gown. My appointment was for 9 am and I did not leave the office until nearly 11 am. Not a word was said of apology or anything in regard for the time it took. The dr spent a decent amount of time with me but I do not think I can continue with this dr since I do not feel respected by her or the practice. It would be one thing if this was late in the day and she got behind but if the 9 am is the first appointment they can give for a checkup which is what I was told then I will need to seek medical care somewhere else. So disrespectful of my time and worth.
