Although I did not attend my daughter’s appointment, my husband relayed that Dr. Chandra-Puri questioned why he was there with our daughter apparently notwithstanding the conversation I had with the triage nurse the day before. The doctor scolded my husband and was flippant in answering his questions. Very disappointing to have acted on advice from your own staff and then to be scolded by a doctor for bringing a sick child in. Not sure we’ll be returning after this experience. A little bit more empathy and compassion would go a long way.

Dr. Chandra-Puri was so very compassionate and empathetic to our situation with our kids not allowed into school due to their Covid like symptoms (cold and cough). She helped get them tested when onother provider did not because they were within the 90 days of getting a positive test. It was such a stressful time for us as parents as our kids had been missing school the last three days. But Dr. Anita went ahead and tested them and gave a note to let them into their class as they were negative and wouldn't likely get Covid again in the next 60 days.
