Dr. Om is always professional. He is thorough in his examinations and explanations about results and medical treatments. I have had positive experiences with Dr. Om. He is very patient and is a good listener, I don't ever feel rushed during my medical visits. Dr. Om ordered an antibiotic injection in his office with my last visit and while the shot was a little painful his nurse that administered the injection was very good. The last time I had an injection for the same antibiotic treatment I had a terrible experience. [...] this last visit the nurse was kind and had a calming and soothing mannerism.
