I appreciate the patience X's medical team has with our family. Parents must do what's best for their child & sometimes the appointment becomes a mediation for miscommunications or problems with at home treatment or follow-through between X & I. X is allowed to express his opinions and feelings. Dr. VV always chimes in with kindness and facts and her expertise focused on X's best quality of life now and as he grows up.

We have met Dr. V 1x. in person and spoken over the phone a couple of times. She has been amazing with my son as well as with me (mother). She is down to earth, communicates well, respectful, funny (makes any dr. visit better), and so knowledgeable! She also took her time/put in considerable thought with us to discuss our situation and also in deciding a plan of action for my son. We feel safe with her and that is the most we can ask for in a dr. as it secures everything else we need from a dr.! Pretty impressive impression from just 1 appointment.

Dr. Viswanathan is an EXPERT in her specialty. Our son is extremely comfortable during his visits with Dr. Viswanathan due to her patience and understanding of his chronic medical condition. We look forward to our checkups every three months because of Dr. Viswanathan's bedside manner. It is very evident Dr. Viswanthan loves what she does by her empathy, compassion, and love of her patients. She is truly a gift from God. Thank you Dr. V for all that you do for our son and family. You are more than a gifted doctor, you are a true friend.

The healthcare provider was extremely helpful and very understanding. She is very knowledgeable and knows how to take care of her patients. She's easy going and I can relate to her and not be afraid to ask her questions. However, the front desk clerks weren't friendly to me but was courteous to another patient before me and after I left. They were busy talking amongst themselves and didn't provide their attention to me.
