Question Rating Breakdown
Dr. Harpinder is one of the best doctors I have ever met. She took my concerns extremely seriously, and she helped me figure out the next steps to take since my daughter didn't end up having an allergy. She even contacted another doctor while I was at the office to get me the support needed until I could get in to see that doctor. I have never been treated so well. Thank you.
Professional and very knowledgeable! Can't thank Dr. Harpinder enough for seeing and treating our son.
Doctor was very easy to talk to and very informative. During the allergy testing she had the nurses give my daughter a coloring book and crayons. Made us both feel very comfortable.
Dr. Kalra was very good at speaking to my older teen rather than me. I appreciated her attention to the fact that this was her appointment and not mine. That in addition to being a great allergist was very much appreciated!
