She was very thorough. She took her time and it didn't feel rushed like some of the other providers I have seen. She seemed like she actually cared and I was very comfortable with her.

I really appreciate Dr N Gandhi's expertise, professionalism, empathetic approach, listening skills she has great expertise in the field on Neurological disorders. I have lived in pain, suffers from indescribable symptoms, some of which had led me to depressive mood, having suicide thoughts, and feelings of hopelessness. All I needed was to know the etiology of my symptoms onset - post concussion syndrome, I came home and researched every detail of information Dr Ghandhi gave during the consultation, she was 100% spot on with my diagnosis, Iaoooo I cried tears of joy knowing that I am not going crazy. Dr. Ghandi, discussed and counseled me on my disease process, she analyzed my symptoms with thorough explanation, she took time to explain prognosis, and emphatically helped me to understand that I was not going crazy, and that my intellectuality will be restored! She was able to identify that I was not sleeping well enough, and provided education that I know will ameliorate my condition! She is one of those Clinician that I will to remember. I am very hopeful since my consultation with Dr. Ghandhi, She is the EXPERT! And she gave me back my life... Please thank her for me..
