"Dr Viswanathan makes me feel like he cares about me, not me the patient, but me the person. He checks lab results but also asks me about how I feel his care and the medication he prescribed is working for me. He makes me want to be stronger than I have been. I highly recommend working with this doctor and I think you should give him a raise."
