great visit! she spent a lot of time talking with my son & engaging him in personal/ social things which helps with his rapport
She was very concerned and helpful during a scary and stressful time for our family. I am very appreciative.
My daughter and I were extremely pleased with this doctor. She took the time to listen to my daughter and myself. She is exploring all possible causes for my daughter's issues and did not immediately prescribed her medication until we have additional test results to determine the cause of her symptoms. Although there is a provider in the same system closer to our home we will definitely travel to see her again.
excellent care and service
very informative and not in a rush. explained everything. My daughter loved her.
Dr. Rajan was very kind and attentive. she spoke directly to my daughter and listened to her.
First time seeing the doctor. She allowed me to give her input first and listened to his history. Then she gave her thoughts and what steps to continue and follow.
Dr. Rajan was wonderful. She was sensitive to the information she delivered, spent a ton of time with us, and helped us understand our daughter's health. Could not have been more grateful for her professionalism and compassion.
Dr. Rajan is always very helpful, friendly and caring. Always takes the time to answer any and all questions that we have. Wonderful doctor and person.
Dr. Rajan made us feel like an important part of our child's care team. She valued the research we had already done and treated us like equals.
Dr. Rajan is very nice, always trying to help, and encouraging. Her staff is always nice and they make my family feel very comfortable.
we saw the PA first who spoke with the doctor and then she came in. She sat down and spoke with us. She spoke directly to my son, which I appreciate. Sometimes doctors tend to speak directly to parents and ignore the child in the room. It is important that they feel included when speaking about their health.
Dr. Rajab was very helpful, courteous, understanding, knowledgeable, & listened to all of our concerns. She spent time with us and addressed all of our concerns and questions.
Dr. Rajan was very nice and very personable with not only me but my 6 year old. She gave us a lot of different options to try and is having us come back in a couple months. My 6 year old said Dr. Rajan was a great Doctor
I was super impressed with Dr ragan and I felt like she really heard me and did an actual exam instead of just look at her bump on her head
Love this doctor. she always listens and offers meaningful feedback. while it took longer to see her than we would like, we are thankful for her attentive care.
we were seen just over an hour after our appointment time. scheduling the prescribed MRI was very disappointing and extremely archaic.
I was very happy with the entire appointment. We were in and out quickly and felt like everyone was attentive.
We love Dr. Rajan. She is always very courteous and never talks down to us, like some other doctors. Our child having epilepsy has been scary, but Dr. Rajan makes it better, with her excellent care!!
Dr Rajan is amazing! She does so well with our 8 year old. Gets down to her level and talks with her
Absolutely wonderful! Very considerate and caring.
dr Rajan was ver professional but caring and compassionate. very satisfied with our visit
I had a very quick and thorough appoinment with the doctors
Dr. Rajan is an excellent doctor and care giver. she takes her time to explain things so that we understand. Also, she is very willing to go out of her way to ensure that our daughter is cared for and given the services, tests, assistance needed to ensure she is safe and getting the medical attention she needs in dealing with her epilepsy and austism.
We are so pleased to have Dr. Rajan as a doctor for our son. She has been absolutely wonderful and so knowledgeable. She has gone above and beyond for our family.
very quick acted as if my concerns weren't valid told me my daughter was not disabled compared to a servealy disabled child even tho she does not have complete mobility in her arm to do a simple task as to put her hair in a ponytail
I have nothing good to say about this appointment or the way my daughter was treated. she was scheduled for a 2:20 appointment and we arrived 15 minutes early as advised. we were left in the waiting room for 2 hours!! She then was seen by a Physician assistant and given the exam by her at 4:15. considering the amount of money I am spending on this visit, I should have been informed my daughter would not be examined by Dr Rajan.
Excellent patient care and compassion for my son's physical and mental health
Dr. Rajan is wonderful. She always takes so much time with us and makes sure that all of our questions are answered. She is very thorough and knowledgeable, and has a great bedside manner.
she was great, as was the PA that we saw, they took time and listened to my daughter and I, and we left feeling that it was well worth the 4 hour round trip to be seen there!
Dr. Rajan is very caring and informative . She carefully explains things and discusses the pros and cons to fully understand care options.
Dr. Rajan is amazing in all ways. We adore her and appreciate her attention to our girl.
The provider was absolutely wonderful. She was very patient and never felt rushed. We did have to wait for a bit, but that is a good thing because that shows that she takes the time with each patient. We left very happy with everything Thank you!
even though we had to wait. we were told in advance the doctor was behind and she apologized as soon as she came in. I feel that this was acceptable and doesn't change my opinion of the doctor. the doctor was wonderful. she listens to our concerns and I feel she is treating my daughter with expert care and knowledge for the situation. I wish more doctors listen like she does. she's not quick to give you meds and get you out the door. she cares and I feel confident that we get my daughter condition under control
All of the folks in the neurology department are amazing.
She didn't review any of the genetic lab results with me. That's what I was there for. She was very rude. She walked in the room.
Dr performed a extremely complete neurological exam. Doctor was respectful and thorough.
dr Rajan is amazing
The staff and Dr were awesome! The Dr was very nice and listened to everything we had to say, Her bedside manner was great and she was very caring and compassionate. I would absolutely refer her to anyone! I wish more Drs were as caring as she is
