There is nothing worse than walking out of a doctor’s office and not really understanding what happened. I strive to keep my communication simple, yet comprehensive. I encourage my patients to ask questions so I can provide them with any additional information they may need.

Dr. Sawardekar is very nice, she answered any questions I had, and listened to me. The appointment was quick, and new safety procedures were explained before the appointment so I knew what to expect and to be prepared.

We love Dr. Sawardekar! She has now treated both myself and both of my children (boys ages 9 and 12), and is always warm, competent, calm, skilled, and extremely knowledgable ... not to mention very cool! She has a great touch with kids, and walked my always-anxious 12 year old right through his procedure with no problems. I would recommend her to anyone!

You were understanding, thoughtful, and helpful. You answered all my questions. The only "bad" thing was that I got the Forefront answering machine when I called to make sure you were working. As you know, many doctors are only doing "telehealth" contacts or have closed their offices until the coronavirus is under control. I almost didn't go to my appointment because I didn't know if you'd be there. The Forefront answering machine needs an option like "if you're checking to see if I'm in my office, [fill in an accurate response, e.g., "if it's Tuesday, I AM in my office and will meet with you." Best wishes.
