Wouldn’t you rather be seen by your primary care provider who knows you and your health history when you’re sick or injured?

Walk-in visits with Dr. Kandavanam can also save you lengthy waits and high urgent care or emergency room bills.


What conditions can you diagnose and treat during walk-in visits?
