“We wanted to send some positive feedback about the care Dr. Janardhanan has given my mother, Darlyn Griffith. She has been under his care for over a year now and I can say that she has never had such a caring, involved and skilled doctor.

Medicine has gotten so complex and specialized and doctors have little time to build personal relationships with their patients but Dr. Janardhanan has been able to do just that with my mother and our family. He’s a great communicator and I believe knows how to access his audience and communicate in a way that is intelligent, clear, respectful and compassionate. He has made himself available for questions above and beyond what I would expect from any doctor given their many demands and busy schedules. We can’t figure out when he can possibly sleep! We have great trust in his care and appreciate how he shares his thought process and lays out options. It is clear that he has great passion for his practice and the care of his patients. We hold him in the highest regard and feel lucky that my mother is in his care.

We also want to give positive feedback to his team: Jodie and Jenny have really helped to squeeze my mom in to see Dr. Janardhanan when his schedule was already full. Barbara has also helped greatly in scheduling, been easy to reach and promptly returns phone calls. They are a wonderful team! — Best regards, Laura and Darlyn Griffith”

Keep up the good work, Dr. J.
