she is a very good Dr and takes time with you without pushing you out the door in 2 minutes like most do she puts her patients first no matter the day or time she very good at what she does if she ever leaves it will be bad you the hospital because she does her job as a Dr very well not like some you are only a number she treats you very good as a person quick to answer your phone calls or a email usually in the same day but most times in a hour that's what all Drs should do she is one you don't have call back cuz she calls you
Guthrie Patient: May 2017
There was a recently released report about how patients are healthier with a female doctor. I immediately thought of *Dr. Prabhu and how I am a healthier person because of her help and care.
Guthrie Patient: May 2017
Dr. Prabhu is the best!!! I feel that she knows me very well.
Guthrie Patient: May 2017
Dr. Prabhu is an excellent doctor - she listens intently, allows me to ask questions, gives me good guidance, is quick to compliment on an improvement and a discussion when I need to improve
Guthrie Patient: May 2017
Dr. Prabhu had a student with her. She first asked if I was ok with this and then proceeded to explain to the student and myself what she was examining and what she was looking for. She was very thorough. She does an excellent job. Guthrie is very lucky to have her as a provider.
Guthrie Patient: February 2017
I sometimes feel that I would not recommend this provider because I feel she is already overworked with case load and training of other physicians which I am sure she is wonderful at.
Guthrie Patient: February 2017
I feel extremely lucky to have found Dr Prahbu. She always takes the time to listen to my concerns and review the answers to my concerns. Also if I call or send a message to her, she personally calls back with answers. Best provider ever!
Guthrie Patient: January 2017
