25/03/13 1 5 1 1 I have had her as my sons paediatrician for 5 years and she has always been rude, never answers my questions and is rarely in her office to even see my son. She doesn't seem to really care for her patience. My son was born with an extremely rare blood disorder and every time I asked her a question about his disorder she made me feel stupid for asking. My son does not like seeing her either, she doesn't take the time to explain anything to the children, or listen to their concerns. In all I do not recommend her and I'm in the process of finding a new dr. For my son.  Respond

13/06/12 3 3 1 1 Dr. Manchanda did not take appropriate measures to diagnose and treat our daughter, such as running tests and consulting with specialists. Dr Manchanda failed to act with the proper standard of care with which other doctors in the same field would act.The result of this negligence was very devastating.  Respond

25/04/12 4 5 5 5 My son has seen dr manchanda since birth. At first I wasn't sure about her. In his first couple visits I found her to be a bit abrasive and a little rude. Shes very down to business, but after getting to know her style better I no longer find her abrasive. She has always done everything she can to help my son and get to the bottom of any health problem I'm having with him. I find she doesn't give advise on feeding, sleeping, ect unless I ask or its becoming a health issue. She always answers all my questions and my son LOVES her. very happy with her over all  Respond

03/02/12 3 1 1 1 She sent my son to the NF clinic in Toronto only to have them return with a request for an MRI in our community (care being done in Toronto). She refused to order the mri which showed abnormalities not uncommon to kids with NF (in his brain) and so for the next several years, my family had to travel to Toronto several times a year to have follow up mris done. Now think if my son had had a big deadly tumour or something lurking in there. Its why we see Dr Stare now.  Respond

10/08/09 5 5 5 5 Dr. Manchanda deals with all three of my children. My children trust her, and she is very good with them. They really like their Doctor, which is very important when dealing with the needle situation. When my youngest seemed to be colicky she recommended a different formula, didn't make me feel bad that I could not breast feed, and the formula has made a world of difference. She also visited my 2nd when he was born and was in the PCCU. She was making rounds on the maternity floor and learned my son, her new patient was down there, she went down there and saw him so she was familiar with his condition when he was discharged. He's a very healthy 3 year old now.  Respond

13/05/09 5 5 5 5 Dr Manchanda is an excellent doctor. Her mannerism and accent come off short and abrupt sometimes. Initially, I found her a little rude but now I understand it is perhaps a cultural difference. She has always taken good care of my son and been very attentive to his needs.  Respond

24/09/08 5 5 5 5 The best Pediatrician I've come across in Ontario. Have been going to her for past 9 years and have never been disappointed. Dr. Manchanda actually cares for her patients and is very good in providing solutions to the problems. When all other doctors failed it was Meera who fixed a major problem with one of my kid with special needs. I have seen consistency in her practice in past 9 years and think have visited enough to rate her as A+  Respond

22/09/08 3 5 5 5 My child has very high speical needs and needs to be seen often and sometimes right away. Dr.Manchanda has always been very nice and quick to help us, even when my child has been admitted to hospital. I love how there is almost no waiting time to be seen and my child (with a poor immune system) isnt stick waiting around with sick children. She also sends her for any tests and fills out any paper work that we feel our child needs.  Respond

02/05/08 4 5 4 4 Dr. Manchanda is aways available for her little patients and parents too. Patient and determined in the same time. I like that she encourage parents to trust their gut and the fact that not always there is necessary to have a pill to fix something. She is great especially with little ones that are not very cooperative when a needle appears. Another great thing is the fact that if your child is sick she's seeing him/her in matter of hours and once you arrive there in few minutes you are in. You don't have to wait with other sick kids and be afraid that you collect some new bugs. Great doctor!  Respond

05/12/07 1 2 1 1 Dr.Manchanda was extremely rude when I first brought my child to see her.She was abbrasive didn`t handle my child in what any parent could consider to be a careing way.She asked questions regarding my childs feeding schedule which I followed as directed by St.Joesephs hospital upon her release.But in a conotation that is indicitive of expecting myself and my childs mother to be neglectng her well being.We promptly left her office haveing been appauled by this treatment only to have the C.A.S. of London rudely knocking on my door the next day.This blatant abuse of authority in order to mask her own unprofesionalism is disgusting and I contacted the Ontario College of Physicians and Surgeons and filed a complaint but "unofficialy" was told that I wasn`t the only parent that wasn`t pleased with her conduct or behaviour.I also contacted the Patient Coordinater from St.Joes to inform them that her conduct is unacceptable.But it seemed to fall on deaf ears.  Respond
