What is Primary Care?
Primary care is a term used to describe the first point of contact between an individual and the healthcare system.

Your primary care provider will be there to guide you through your healthcare journey, providing you with the tools and knowledge you need to carry out your healthiest life possible. Dr. Sindwani offers the following healthcare services for her primary care patients.
Treatment for Acute Illness
Acute illnesses are medical conditions that develop suddenly and require medical attention. These illnesses usually last a short period of time, from several days to a couple of weeks.
