Dr. Rathod is a breath of fresh air! Her medical practices are the way of the future. Using a systems approach, each patient is treated individually, in depth, and with compassion. We do not have to buy into the notion of 'this happens as you age'. Preventive medicine can help everyone live their best life possible. I once again feel energetic, healthy and no longer have daily aches and pains. She is wonderful!

My appointment with Dr. Rathod has given me hope that my hypothyroid symptoms can be treated and I can get my former good health back. She took plenty of time, answered all my questions, and taught me some new things. I no longer feel as if I have to study my illness and push my doctor to do what I need--Dr. Rathod understands what I need.
