I am a firm believer in preventive care, encouraging my patients to make behavioral changes that can help with their chronic medical conditions.

    I wish the video visit information was a little more clear. This was my first time with a video visit and I didn’t really know what to expect.

    Dr. Dandekar was wonderful as always. This year they introduced some different requirements with the Medicare Wellness Visit, such as an eye test in the hall. Dr. Dandekar examined me, and discussed my medications with me and my general health. She gave me a referral for a colonoscopy and ordered refills for my prescriptions. I had my 6 month bloodwork done too. Her Medical Assistant was very good as well. It was a good visit.
