The woman who check me in at the front desk was excellent. I was schedule for X-rays but already had them on the disk so she asked the doctor to review before additional xrays were done. Dr accepted what I had saving me hundreds in additional imaging and radiation exposure.

in all my years of interaction with medical professionals I honestly left Dr Kamath feeling he truly was interested in my concerns... AND he actually listened to me! We set some plans in action and I feel very confident he will guide me through my medical concerns. It's so comforting to find a doctor who sees me as a person and not a number!

My doctor is always concerned about my progress and my physical therapy at home. He asks about my pain level and recommends the next course of treatment and exercises to help me get stronger.
Reviewed on Feb 11, 2019
Dr. Kamath was polite and articulate, obviously prepared for my initial visit and never condescending. He was patient with my questions and thoughtful in his responses. Very impressive as an office doctor. Obviously, I have no experience with him as a surgeon at this point.

I had no idea of what to expect and I had no knowledge of the Dr. I was seeing. However, both the doctor and his assistant (fellow/residen?)) made me feel comfortable, They genuinely respected my opinions and clearly answered my questions. Even on my way out, after my appointment, they were concerned about my safety: suggested and provided me with a cane.
