Ratings for Dr. Sonia Gidwani
Dr. Gidwani has been my daughter's pediatrician since she was a day old in the hospital. I could not ask for a better doctor. I am a first time mom and still learning. Dr. Gidwani never made me feel my questions were insignificant. There were many times I emailed her in the wee hours of the morning to get a response back from her immediately. Any emergency she has always fit me into her schedule. I went to the downtown office. It's great. The staff is amazing and the office is always tidy and welcoming. We just moved out of the city and I know I will be hard pressed to find a doctor as good as her.
Dr Gidwani and Dr Senkler are incredibly skilled and caring doctors. They have been taking care of my 3 children since day one and I couldn't be happier. They truly care about the children and both are always available and very responsive. I mostly communicate with them by email - a real plus that makes my life so much easier - and they usually respond very quickly. One of my kids has asthma and needs extra care and I always felt she gets it. No matter when I need Dr Gidwani or Dr Senkler they are available to see her and pay a lot of attention to her needs. And they are very patient with me too :-) since I tend to get quite anxious about my daughter's health. Also I come from Italy and I appreciate Dr Gidwani's open minded view to different approaches and cultures. She makes me feel at home. I feel this is the best care I could ever expect for my children. I could've ask for more.
Dr Gidwani has been our pediatrician for over 8years. And she's honestly the best I'm afraid to leave NY because I j ow I won't find another pediatrician that my kids love more than DR G... I trust her judgement and she's awesome with my kids always hugs and plays with them during every visit. She's the best around.
Dr. Gidwani is amazing!!! This practice is a rare find! From our first prenatal visit, I knew we were in the very best hands. Dr. Gidwani sat with us and answered ALL of our questions from soup to nuts and was truly interested in our views and concerns. She was extremely warm, super smart and just immediately put us at ease. In the hospital, she was wonderful with our newborn daughter. Now, over 1 year later, we could not be more pleased with Dr. G and her staff. Early on, our child was diagnosed with a pretty severe dairy allergy. During that time, Dr. G was insightful, patient and always quick to respond. We also had a few after hours emergencies when our child was a newborn and within minutes (I don't know how she does it) we had a response! Dr. G is super responsive via email (which is so incredibly helpful, I can't begin to tell you), she is ridiculously smart, warm, compassionate and really listens to the views and concerns of the parent. Dr. G. has never once made me feel inadequate or like any of my questions or concerns are too small or insignificant. She loves what she does and has been a Godsend to us this first year. Dr. Gidwani and Dr. Senkler are kind, non-judgmental, respectful and the kids absolutely adore them! The staff is also top notch. This practice is fantastic and even if we move neighborhoods, we will continue to go to Dr. Gidwani. I trust Dr. G. implicitly. I would HIGHLY recommend her.
I married into a family of doctors, so the standards are high. Dr. Gidwani has been our son's pediatrician since birth (he's 15 months old now) and she has been excellent. Highly responsive, level headed, knowledgeable, friendly; we really like her - and that includes the doctors who have met her.
My five month old son had a bad rash my last visit to Dr. Gidwani. Dr. Gidwani took the time to also book us an appointment with Dr. Ungur, dermotologist who she trusts. Dr. Gidwani is always helpful and compassionate towards my children and for my concerns. She responds to urgent phone calls and emails with a quickness unlike any other doctors I have experienced. You can tell she truly cares for and loves her patients. The office staff is lovely and always hospitable. The receptionist has also picked up my urgent phone calls on weekends and early mornings. I am fortunate to have found Our Kids.
Sonia is the most condescending and worst doctors I have ever visited. As a first time mom, it is natural to worry if your newborn has fever. I went to Sonia because my regular doctor was away. She was so so condescending and kept going on about how I was panicking, treating my anxiety instead of kids. She wouldn't believe that I had taken the correct temperature. I kept trying to get a word in that I took the temperature before leaving for her office, her response was that if I had to come see her why bother. Anyway, she went on and on and on, and didn't let me get a word in. Sonia was very condescending the entire time, she behaved as if she cared much more about our kids than us. Every single statement we made was put down by her as useless anxiety. I found her words and demeanor very insulting. She kept kissing my kids, a level of intimacy I didn't appreciate. This is NYC, there are good doctors, no need to go to one who treats patients with utmost disrespect.
