Kind words about Dr. Kaneriya

Dr. Kaneriya has been my primary care physician for over 15 years. In addition to being a great diagnostician, she has well-honed interpersonal skills: She listens, she follows up with open-ended questions, and she provides understandable explanations about complicated medical problems! As a consequence, I always feel like I am part of the process of figuring out what ails me when I am in her office or on a web health visit. Dr. Kaneriya has also managed to assemble a top notch staff too, who reflect her dedication to her patients.
