When I go to Dr. Randhava, it doesn’t feel like I am at a doctor's appointment where I have to explain my problems for the 4th time. He's really easy to talk to and is caring and reassuring. He has a great perspective and it’s actually refreshing to talk to him. He’s a really sweet guy and I always feel a lot better after seeing him.
