“I believe that patients should take an active role in their healthcare and make decisions guided by information. By giving patients a voice, my goal is to make each patient feel valued and respected. I can then adjust their care plans to their personal needs, values, and beliefs.”
Dr. Prabhu offers a full range of obstetrical and gynecological services, including prenatal and preventive care.
