"Dr. Kumaraswamy did a very thorough physical exam and asked many questions to understand the effects of a fall I had taken. She immediately ordered the appropriate testing and saw me again promptly after getting the results. At that time she prescribed a course of action to aid the healing process. She listened carefully to my questions and patiently answered each of them. Excellent!"
