Dr Kawadry is always pleasant, she explains everything thoroughly, her team does exact measurements and vitals at every visit, and Dr Kawadry reviews these measurements on the growth chart. Questions are always answered with detail. I'm sure she has many many patient, but she remembers everything that I tell her about my child even from previous visits. She gives high quality individualized care which is very important for this type of pediatric population. Excellent physician!!

Dr. Kawadry and ALL of her staff are all extremely knowledgeable when it comes to pediatric diabetes. I have complete comfort and faith in them as they provide the best possible care for my son as he begins this lifelong journey.

December 2, 2019 1:24 PM

The wait time was slightly long, but that was expected as we were an add-on from a post-hospitalization, so that was not even a worry for us at all, we were just happy to get our care established with such a great team.

July 15, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Kawadry was so kind and understanding as well as nurse X. I as a parent feel very confident having my son in their care.

Dr Kawadry and her staff are excellent! my son was able to be seen very quickly since it was detrimental to my newborn child's health to be seen right away and started on medications, thanks to Dr kawadry's staff. Dr Kawadry is so knowledgeable and explained my sons diagnosis and treatment thoroughly. she even gave me handouts to bring home regarding his diagnosis and medications since my husband was not able to come to the appointment. I would recommend this physician to everyone.

The computer systems were very slow that day making it very difficult for the receptionist. We arrived 10 minutes early for the appoint but were not checked in until 45 minutes after our appointment time. It was very frustrating for everyone involved.

i am XX's Mother, she is a minor. also, the reason we were waiting for the doctor longer than 15 minutes is because there had been terrible ice that day! We understood how terrible the streets were! the staff kept us updated and did all the preliminary screening we needed so that we were ready when the Dr came in! very satisfied with everyone in the office! The nurse was excellent!!
