Friday, 09 July 2021 My first impression of Dr. Viba Malaiyandi’s office was through the very pleasant individuals who answer questions and schedule her appointments over the telephone. Each of the two females was very calm, patient, informative, delightful, and professional. I was so happy to hear a human voice instead of trying to struggle with a computer. I was given all of the information that I needed to arrive prepared for my visit, including where to find the forms on the internet, where the office was located, and how to properly pronounce the doctor’s name. When I finally met Dr. Malaiyandi I was very anxious and excited, but she calmed my nerves and made sure that I understood the steps that I will need to take for recovery. I was treated with dignity, respect, and resourcefulness by her and her team members as they met and exceeded all of my expectations. I am delighted to be Dr. Malaiyandi’s new patient.
