14/03/14 4 5 4 5 Dr Kansal is very friendly and knowledgeable. He has later hours most days, and encourages people to visit any office rather than wait an additional day to be seen.

01/10/13 5 5 5 5 I consider Dr. Kansal to be what the Dr. ordered up to date-knowledgeable-compassionate and available any time I have needed his medical attention. I know what to do if the situation arises and he is out of town. I am also confident that he will let me know when it is time to see another physican. I am not intimadated and I know that I can ask him questions about any concerns.

24/08/10 5 5 5 5 Dr. Kansal is one of the very few physicians that I trust. He has a wide knowledge base, not confined just to asthma and immunology. He looks at the entire picture when treating the patient. He balances aggressiveness with cautiousness. He makes you comfortable with the diagnosis and the treatment. If you call and are having a problem he will see you that same day. The staff is fantastic, they really care and it feels like an extended family. He has improved the quality of life for my entire family. I am a worrier by nature and he was able to put my concerns in the proper perspective, which is not easy! I have recommended at least 10 people to him and none have been disappointed. Thank you Dr. Kansal

28/01/10 5 5 5 5 Dr. Kansal is one of the best doctors I have ever been to. My whole family has been going to him for the last 20 years. I began taking my son when he was five years old and Dr. Kansal could not have done a better job with diagnosing and treating his asthma. My son is now healthy and asthma free thanks to Dr. Kansal. His bedside manner is excellent and he really gives you the time and attention for all your concerns. My family is very greatful for finding such an excellent doctor! I reccommend Dr. Kansal to anyone!  Respond

09/01/10 3 4 3 1 I felt very uncomfortable with this doctor. He told me some things that were unprofessional in my mind and diagnosed my daughter with asthma and she has never needed an inhaler or been short of breath. She was only 2 years old when he diagnosed her. I seriously think something is off about him.

20/11/09 5 5 5 5 His care was the same cash or insurance when I retired I lost my insurance and he did not drop me. When I first became an asthmatic, I was in denial and his approach was firm but kind. I now take my meds as I am supposed to and am symptom free and very active.  Respond

31/10/08 5 5 5 5 Dr. Kansal is an extremely good doctor, he was very thorough and has an amazing bedside manner. He is a docotr that will sit there and talk about everything to make sure he has the right diagnosis, not like other doctors that rush from room to room. I would be highly suspect of that 2006 negative reivew as no doctor would try to send an insurance company a bill for record duplication. I urge you to try him for yourself and you will not be dissapointed, thats why all my friends go to see him.  Respond

10/07/06 3 1 2 I was not at all happy with Dr. Kansal's treatment. He wanted me to come back every month to see him, even though all my allergy test results were negative and my asthma was not sever enough to warrant monthly treatment. I discontinued treatment with him after a few visits, and later went to a different allergist in the area who re-tested me and found that several of Dr. Kansal's test results were wrong. I was also told by my new doctor that Dr. Kansal had tested me extensively for food allergies, even though I had no symptoms that would indicate the need for such testing. In addition, I would question his billing practices; when I went to pick up my records I was charged a $10 fee for 5 double-sided copies, and the office also tried to bill my insurance company the same amount for these records even though I had already paid the fee. Avoid this doctor!!  Respond
