“I started seeing Dr. Sodhi in my first trimester, and she delivered our baby boy just under 2 months ago. I was originally very afraid and skeptical of a hospital birth due to some prior traumatic hospital experiences, as well as really wanting to have a natural birth with as little interventions as possible.
As a first time mom, that did IVF, as well as being over age 40, Dr. Sodhi made every extra effort to talk it all through with me, to make sure I delivered a healthy baby and had a smooth delivery. She really worked with me, and it really couldn’t have gone any better! Her and the team at Tarzana hospital, as well as our incredible Doula Bahia Shortlidge (also from Dr. Sodhi’s office), helped us have the smoothest, most beautiful and moving birth experience we could have ever hoped for.
It was beyond our expectations and we couldn’t have been happier!! Her and everyone at her office are so professional and caring. They always go the extra mile which means everything to us. Dr. Sodhi is so amazing at what she does. She takes the time to really talk with you, asks all the right questions, and really gets to know you. You couldn’t ask for anything more!! If you want an OBGYN who truly and genuinely cares about your well being, and loves what she does, this is the doctor for you. We are so grateful and blessed to have had her deliver our healthy & happy baby boy!!”
