Specialties

Dr. Sudha Chandrasekhar has the following 2 specialties

  • 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.

  • Adolescent Medicine

    Adolescent specialists are doctors who have advanced training in the health issues that adolescents face. These physicians deal with issues like the onset of puberty, reproductive health, eating disorders, irregular periods, mood changes, drugs and pressures from home and school. For girls entering adulthood, adolescent specialists can act as both pediatrician and gynecologist, so they only have to see one doctor for all their needs.

Mediocre doc and office

The wait to see the doctor was awful. It was an hour with a toddler and the office assistant was mean about letting us out of the room to go to the play area. The doctor was in the room for 5 minutes. They gave him a bunch of shots. He had high fevers for 2 days. I will not be returning with my son.

She was great when she started practice. Afterwards, the service started deteriorated. As a parent, I trusted her with care of the kid. I have sole legal custody of the child with decision making. But she didn't respect that and started discussing with other parent. She started providing care based on other parents wish which was not even court ordered. I am pretty disappointed with the way she treated me and my child. If you are going through divorce and a single parent, I would not recommend you to go to her.

The practice was great when started, right I wouldn't recommend it

My kids have been patients of Dr Sudha since the practice started about 6-7 years ago. As the practice grew, they have not kept up. She is the only doctor, the other providers are nurse practicioners. It is almost impossible to get an apoointment with Dr Sudha and I disagree with leaving the care of my kids to nurse practicioners. I am very disappointed and I started taking my kids to another provider.

Decent

Dr Chandrasekhar is decent. She isn't spectacular, but I have no complaints. We can't get into her office for sick visits, so we choose urgent care for everything but well check ups. The other staff seemed disinterested in the children, and didn't greet appropriately for pediatric medicine.
