Ratings for Dr. Aradhana Rajkumar
Dr. Rajkumar is an exceptional, patient and thorough pediatrician. After leaving our pediatrician in CT I was worried about replacing her, but after lots of research and review reading I found Dr. Rajkumar. We live about 20 minutes away from her office but she is worth the drive, when I became pregnant with my second I thought maybe it is time to find someone closer but I just couldn’t and unless we move even further away I wouldn’t, ever. My first child hasn’t needed to much care from the usual annual checkup and cold twice a year, thankfully, but my second was a different story. When I became pregnant again I let her know she would have another patient and asked if she would visit her in the hospital when she was born to do an initial check up and she agreed, basically just call her when it was time. Well, long story short she was born premature at 31 weeks, I immediately called Dr. Rajkumar because I wanted someone who knew us and cared for us to be there for our sweet tiny girl and she didn’t hesitate she said she lived 2 minutes from the hospital and would be there first thing in the morning. By the time I got to the NICU at 9:00 am she had already been there and gotten all her medical info she couldn’t do her own check up because the doctors in the NICU were her physicians for the time being but they filled her in on everything because she had privileges there. The nurses and doctors in the NICU always asked who her pediatrician was to verify etc. and it would be followed up with “oh, wow, yes, she’s thorough, she is good” we knew that but because our son was pretty healthy we never needed much, so hearing her peers speak highly of her reassured us that the care she would give our premie would be excellent and it has been. She visited her several times in the NICU even when I didn’t know she was, our daughter has had RSV and respiratory problems which is typical for preemies and her care plan is always right inline with the specialist we go to. We have had emergencies and we drive straight to her office, we call ahead but she never tells us not to come in she is a doctor that trusts a mother's “gut” and listens. I trust her fully with my children, if we call in the middle of the night she calls back, when we are away she has refilled prescriptions for us by calling in to the local pharmacy, then checks in a few days later to make sure our children's health is improving. As a rule I always treat the office staff anywhere I go with respect and the office staff here always reciprocates I am not sure why anyone has ever had a problem but I have been here a lot, with sick children, last minute appointments, etc and never had an issue. The only con and it isn’t a con for me because I am a patient person would be that there are always people there to see her and the waiting area isn’t very long but the wait is never too long and there are enough seats for the people waiting, although I would probably wait an hour to see the best because my children deserve the best!
She has been taking care of my son and daughter for years. She returns midnight calls, calls in meds for my baby whenever needed she is the best. My kids love her we travel quite a way to see her, she takes her time and explains everything. Visits are a joy my 16 year old son and 8 years old daughter love to see her. When I first start seeing her my daughter was in and out of the hospital for asthma ,since she has been seeing Dr. Raj she hasn't been hospitalized since. I am extremely grateful for her
Dr Aradhana Rajkumar ranks very high in being helpfulness and going above and beyond what she is supposed to do as a doctor. My son was suffering from regular nausea, sore throat without fever. She went extra lengths to assure us every 3 hours , consulting specialists on her own to understand the problem, address our late night calls, called up the pharmacy to get us alternative medicine. She will explain you what's wrong, what could be the possible diagnosis and what path is going ahead with. That's comforting..! I would strongly recommend the doctor. The only area where I feel a little difficult, is inspite of having appointment with the Doctor, the wait time can go beyond 60-90 minutes beyond your scheduled appointment.
I love the way dr raj explain to us what is wrong with our babies. I have rwins and a 5 year ild. We have been woth her for 5 years. She is excellent and always available day and night to help out. She is informative and knowedgable and nice to deal with. I recommend her to any family.
I wouldn't recommend doctor you feel rushed when your paying for you appt and half the time you can't understand the doctor. Staff is so rude and arrogant.
