Dr Soudagar is not only an excellent physician, but he's shown interest and cares about my complex health issues. I trust his knowledge and expertise. He's given me the time I need, listens and has shared good advice. He or one of his staff always gets back to me quickly whether it's a phone call or email. I appreciate having him as part of my medical team.
