10/09/11 4 3 1 1 In-sensitive and In-competent. She does not have enough complete experience of all issues that may arise during pregnancy. Her intrepretation of tests results are as good as any kid who knows to read. Please..don't go by just websites or a fellow recommendation..I certainly know that personal experience varies..but try to see how many years has the doc been in this..before choosing one...Our experience. With this one has been very stressful and bad one.

01/10/08 5 5 5 5 I was in Dr Nalwa's care during my pregnancy and delivery. I was a high risk patient due to gestational diabetics and also had issues with uterine fibroids but Dr. Nalwa took great care throughout my pregnancy. She was always positive and that kept me very positive. Eventually, just couple of weeks before my due date an emergency situation arose and Dr. Nalwa handled everything extremely well. I underwent an emergency C-section and she was there for me; she actually held me during the epidural. The baby was fine and everything went well. I trusted her with my pregnancy and delivery completely and I knew she did all the right things, made timely decisions and was very stable and positive. She is wonderful and yes so is her staff.  Respond

09/07/08 5 5 5 5 Great doctor and front desk staff (Linda). Many of her other patients just love her--I found it during my Lamaze classes. Best thing-- she is attached to three different hospitals in So. Bay. O'Connors, Good Sam and El Camino. Responds well during emergency (I was in that situation twice)--one time that took her a little longer to respond, she was in an emergency surgery, but I left a message and called again, and she responded as soon as she was free. She then made a special trip to the hospital on weekend to see that I was alright. The best thing is that she is very well respected in all three hospitals and she will always think about her patients safety and comfort first. Love her.

12/12/07 4 4 5 5 When I went to her office, I was not sure whether I was taking the right step but the moment I met this doctor all my doubts were cleared. She spent time listening patiently. She is very caring and personable (a rare quality for ob/gyn's), gave excellent advice, and I found her extremely knowledgeable. Excellent doctor overall. I will update the review after my delivery again ;)

15/02/07 3 5 4 If you want the gender of your baby to be a secret/surprise, this is not the doctor for you. She doesn't know how to note in patient's file "not to disclose baby's gender." Talk about letting the cat out of the bag. Also, if you call this doctor after hours on her cell, for legitimate reason being the care provider, good luck getting a return call back. Not sure what's up with that on not returning calls, but very disappointing.  Respond
