Dr. Shanti Krishnan has the following 1 specialty

  • Pediatrics

    A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
    While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
    Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.

Best pediatrician!!

Dr. Krishnan is the only doctor I've taken my kids to whom I trust 100%. She truly cares for her patients and takes so much time to figure out the problem, and she ALWAYS calls to check up and see how we are doing. She works with us every step of the way and is always spot on with diagnoses and treatment. My kids love her and consider her part of the family. I know they will be so sad when they are too old to see her. Anyone looking for a pediatrician, I would not recommend anyone else.

Dr. Krishnan has been our pediatrician since my daughters were born, and she is excellent. She really knows my girls, and has always been 100% accurate in her diagnoses. She takes her time with them, is very thorough and has even gotten to know our family as a whole, which is very important. My girls are very comfortable with her, which I know will help tremendously as we are soon to hit the teenage years when they (and I!) will have a million questions. Best pediatrician out there; I would recommend her in every facet.

Dr. Krishnan is very personable and caring. She has great bedside manner and is very knowledgeable. She really takes the time to get to know patients and their families, and to cover preventive advice as well as current problems. We have seen a lot of different doctors for our family over the years, and she is my favorite! The only problem is that she is quite popular and her appointments can fill up quickly, so we book our checkups well in advance.
