Dr. Srinivasan is a doctor I really appreciate having. He isn't my PCP but rather a specialist I see. He knows his stuff very well & he really takes the time to explain things. Unlike some other doctors where you'll wait for a long time just to see them for 5 min, Dr. Srini will spend the time with me to answer any questions I have. He is easy to talk to and is very kind-hearted. Great doctor!
Excellent bed side manners, he answered all my questions about Rheumatoid arthritis, I will definitely recommend him to anyone that needs a rheumatologist.
Dr. Srinivasan is an amazing doctor! #nationaldoctorsday2015 #virtualflower1
