Dr. Jhamb is efficient and effective. He rounds with a focus on task completion and pursuing quality care for his patients without delay. He has a charming sense of humor that helps to break down communication walls with patients and makes us, as learners, feel more comfortable approaching him.

Dr. Sahas was excellent to work with! She was kind, patient and taught me how to do microscopic UA. This was in addition to the good teaching points she offered.
