On the whole, I had a great experience with Dr. Nair and felt she communicated well and addressed all my concerns. My one complaint would be that she didn't tell me (nor did the lab staff) that she had ordered a 24-hour urine collection, so I didn't know to pick up the ordered a 24-hour urine collection, so I didn't know to pick up the collection jug from the lab.

Dr. Nair demonstrated courtesy care concern & continuity. I went to this visit per my PCP referral; I have few complaints and felt that the lab work up & x-rays were too excessive for a patient with no specific issues or concerns besides aging gracefully.
