Both [...] & Dr. Singh seemed to have all the time in the world for me. The reason I continue to return is their punctuality and thorough care. Very willing to answer my questions or concerns. 1:30 appt. is done by 2, and I greatly appreciate that, as my time is limited.

dr Singh spends too much time typing in his tablet and repeats the same things over and over again like he forgot he already recorded it. very poor people skills and makes you feel like he just wants to get his notes entered and does not care about the patient I would go see another doctor if I did not already use the Cpap machine.
