I have not issues with Dr. Pawate as of the last 2-3 visits. He has improved in his ability in his ability to communicate versus when I first saw him in 2009.
Patient | September 22, 2017
Dr. Pawate is an excellent doctor. He covers all aspects from your head to your toes. Very thorough in explanation. However, he does speak low in a soft tone. But when I asked him to speak up, he was very nice about it and moved closer to where I could hear him easier. But, he answered all my questions and the prognosis of my symptoms. I would highly recommend him!

Dr. Pawate takes his time with you during your appointment which I like. He does a thorough assessment every visit and explains everything and asks if you need anything before you leave. I have recommended him to colleagues when they ask who I see because I am doing so well, and I will keep recommending him!

Dr. Pawate is very professional. I have a rare autoimmune disorder and very few doctors have much knowledge of the disease. Dr. Pawate is up to date and informed about my disease. He spends all the time I need answering my questions and addressing my concerns. He is always looking for solutions to provide me with a better quality of life. He is a caring, wonderful doctor.

I have a lot of confidence in the doctor and the clinic. They know their stuff. However, conveying information to me is sometimes lacking. In fairness, the clinic is specialized for a disease that is complex.
Patient | January 23, 2017
