Dr. Malaiyandi and Alexis have spent a lot of time treating my condition trying to make sure that we were heading in the right direction and my discomfort was minimized as much as possible. At this last visit, I felt like we had a good plan for treatment and appreciated all their work to get us there. Dr. Malaiyandi was very conscientious in follow-ups with my questions regarding medication and blood work.
