It is clear when discussing my disease with Dr. Wadhwani that she is at the forefront of her specialty. Dr. Wadhwani explains why do the tests to be done, what they mean, why take this or that medication, the prognosis, in a few words all that has to do with the disease at hands. She is also very caring and concerned for the overall wellbeing of her patients.
