Dr. Subramanian is a breath of fresh air. She is a good listener and you'll never have to worry about her questioning a vegan diet. She has a kind and compassionate demeanor and is genuinely interested in your long-term health and helping you problem solve any health concerns that may surface. I have recommended Dr. Subramanian to many and I recommend her to anyone looking for a kind, compassionate, knowledgable, and thorough physician.



I decided to make Dr. Subramanian my primary care physician because of her awareness of the healthful benefits of following a vegan diet. Over the many years that I have been a patient of hers I have found her to be consistently professional, caring and competent. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a top-notch primary care doctor who embraces preventive medicine.

I've seen Dr. Subramanian for nearly 10 years, following her from her former practice to her current one. During this time, she's been accessible, empathetic, and knowledgeable - and most importantly, I completely trust her with my health. I've recommended her to colleagues and loved ones without hesitation and will continue to do so.

We have been patients of Dr. Subramanian for almost 10 years. Not only is she an outstanding doctor, but she also brings very solid expertise in the field of nutrition, incorporating a holistic approach that promotes wholesome lifestyle habits conducive to good health. She is very thorough in her examinations and interviews, and always reminds us to do the necessary preventive tests. She is a good listener and elicits a partnership with her patients, so that we feel invested in the decision-making process for our healthcare choices.
Dr. Subramanian really cares about her patients, is sensitive and compassionate, and is always willing to take time to explain things, to provide knowledgeable insights to help us learn ways to improve health and wellness without simply resorting to medications and pills.
We would unhesitatingly recommend Dr. Subramanian to anyone looking for a doctor who supports long-term health goals based on wise daily lifestyle choices, but backs up her recommendations with solid medical knowledge and expertise.
