16/06/14 1 5 5 5 Dr. Dhunnoo is a very kind, knowledgeable and punctual pediatrician. He is very sweet with our baby boy. Unfortunately his receptionist is very unwelcoming, unfriendly and sometimes outright rude. This is very sad as parents need kindness when their child is ill. It is a pity that such a kind man has such unkind staff.

09/06/14 4 4 5 5 Dr.Dhunnoo is an amazing peadatrician. He is wonderful with kids and their parents. I Have no issues with his staff either. His staff although they can be "difficult" to deal with sometimes, are great. They know me and my daughter by name. I used to work for Dr.D on a short term contract and I realized how incredibly hard it is for his staff to work there! He treats his staff awesome but some of the patients do not. I can understand the frustration of the patient's parents; however, they need to understand that Dr. D is very busy! So are his staff. It is not the receptionist's job to confirm appointments, that is the parent's job. And it is certainly not the receptionist's job to look up phone numbers and fax numbers to the parent's preferred blood lab, etc. I would like to see more parents give more recoginition to the staff members, becasue they put up with a lot of unfravorable comments and attitudes from some of the parents. Keep up the great work! You all are wonderful!

16/07/13 1 5 5 5 Dr Dhunoo is a wonderful Paediatrician, very polite and informative and I couldn't have asked for a better Dr. Unfortunately I can't say the same for his receptionists (one in particular) who fails to give eye contact when speaking and spoken to (lest they be male and rather good looking). Often replies to my questions curtly and makes me and my children feel overall very unwelcome.  Respond

12/07/12 1 5 5 5 An amazing doctor. His receptionist stinks. I've been trying to get a requisition faxed to the lab for 15 days now and still nothing. The receptionist even made me look up the fax number and call her back with it. Ummm, isn't that your job? The only reason we are still going is because we like Dr Dhunnoo and a good pediatrician is hard to find. Receptionists on the other hand...  See Responses

12/02/12 3 4 5 5 Dr. Dhunnoo has been our pediatrician for 10 years. He is always very calm and pleasant and speaks directly to the child. He is concerned not only for the patient's physical well being but also for their emotional and psychological health. Does not hesitate to order necessary tests and is a very caring physician. My kids adore him. Would HIGHLY RECOMMEND. Feel lucky to have found him.  Respond

21/09/10 4 3 4 5 Great physician. My dad is a physician and I've dealt with doctors all the time so I know what a good doctor is all about and mostly it is intelligent practice of medicine which means not overtreating but thorough and complete investigations. I like his direct way with my sons. His new receptionist is sweet.  Respond

12/01/10 1 3 2 4 service is moderate however his receptionist (Nov.2009) lacks basic people skills. I have found a new doctor so to avoid her juvinile manners. Does not return phone calls even in an emergency. His reseptionest is unresponsive and rude. Dr. Dhunnoo is very reluctant to refer to specialists.  Respond

13/11/09 5 4 5 5 Thanks Dr Dhunnoo for taking such great care of our infant son who has had some recurrent infections and kidney concerns since his birth. You knew immediately upon seeing his lab work what was wrong and what needed to be done, when two separate trips to the emergency room left us without answers. You have been patient, gentle, accommodating and calming throughout our times together.  Respond

12/07/08 4 5 5 5 Awesome doctor. I can't believe how quickly we are in and out of there. He's so friendly and caring. I always look forward to our appointments. His assistant needs to learn how to measure the length of babies but it's worth dealing with her for him.  Respond

29/06/08 3 3 5 5 My wife and I were almost moved to tears with his genuineness, compassion, and optimism in regards to our infant son's prognosis. He was wonderful in instilling hope when we were immersed in a cloud of skepticism and despair by other doctors. Although we were informed by several health care staff about his reputation of being very knowledgeable and proficient, his committment to our son's unique circumstances was an unexpected blessing to our plight.  Respond

He is also very pleasant as well.  Respond
