Sunanda Sindhwani, M.D.

Become a Patient

“I am a strong believer in pre-emptive medicine and not reactive medicine though the latter does have its value. Looking for risk factors before they become diseases is a very important part of my practice. Spending the time and effort in risk stratifying the patient goes a long way in disease prevention. I provide appropriate, compassionate, and timely medical care.”
