This was my first visit with Dr Baskaran. I feel that we will develop a good relationship.

Visit was helpful & a good experience. I was slightly disappointed that I need & to reach out the following day via My Chart to ask follow-up questions based on blood work results & was not contacted by the office first.
May 2, 2022
I usually communicate with my doctor via My Chart. It sometimes takes a day or 2 to get a response back. When at the office Dr. Baskaran takes time to talk to me & answer question.

I didn't like being forced to wear a mask and when I didn't put it on immediately the reception person was a little rude about it...also the MD didn't really discuss my issues clearly and I had to keep asking questions... Finally, the MD seemed more concerned about ordering colonoscopy and looking at my blood pressure which wasn't bad...seemed like she used my visit to generate more appointments thus more money to the clinic

Great service all around

First visit to this office. Dr Baskaran is excellent. Reception staff seemed unprofessional however. Chatted amongst themselves continually. Reception staff did not reflect the level of professionalism I expect, and if it does not change I may look elsewhere for care.
March 29, 2022
The overall experience was good. Just with the Dr I felt like a number and I was the last number called on their late Tuesday. I felt rushed and she couldn't care less about my questions.
March 21, 2022
Very pleased with Dr. Baskaran's approach to primary care. She really took the time to go into my medical history thoroughly and develop and appropriate plan to manage all health concerns moving forward. I appreciated her thoroughness and her knowledge and expertise.
February 28, 2022
This was my first time meeting Dr. Baskaran to establish her as my primary care doctor. She was exactly what I needed & wanted as my personal doctor. She listened to all of my history & supported my choices & made wonderful suggestions to enhance my future needs.
February 22, 2022
I needed to get a new physician since I became an adult and did some research. Arthy seemed like someone I could trust and I was super happy with my visit. She seemed like she took time and effort to understand my health concerns and my history and family history. Didn't feel rushed or critical. I felt heard and really felt I could trust her advice and that she had my best interest in mind but also gave me the space to share my own input about my health. Super happy with the clinic and with Arthy!
February 22, 2022
Everyone is very helpful and friendly. They know my history and make sure my meds are correct for me.

The lady in the lab was the most relaxing wonderful person.
February 7, 2022
The staff, nurse and doctor were all very kind and conducted themselves professionally. I also had blood drawn and that staff member was excellent. I got in right away, they explained everything and did a good job. I am very happy with the care that I received.

The front desk lady was so RUDE and she was not helpful at all. Every time I go to this office I get the say lady in the front and ALWAYS have a problem with the same person. She told me my insurance did not work and she had to "push" it through I asked what that mean and she could not tell me just to WAIT for billing!! So I just have to wait for a bill which I should not get
