“I have known Anita for more than 10 years as a colleague and primary care physician. She has seen multiple patients from my office. She is able to treat the gambit of psychological issues with extreme professionalism, accuracy, and precision and has helped many of my patients in their time of need. There is no one more in tune and receptive to taking care of immediate issues than Anita.
