Dr. Natarajan was the first neurologist we met after arriving to the NICU. In those critical and terrifying first hours, Dr. Natarajan was a class act. She was compassionate and warm, realistic and knowledgeable. As a family in crisis, being treated with respect and kindness during those difficult moments was invaluable, and we felt like our child and family received world class care.
A quick story: When we first met Dr. Natarajan in the NICU, she shook my hand, looked into my eyes, and congratulated me on my beautiful baby. That was the first time I had heard anything other than apologies and condolences, and it really caught me by surprise. It was such a small act, but it was profound. It was the moment I realized that I'm a mother and that things just might turn out ok. I'll remember that moment for the rest of my life.
She is amazing she listened to everything I had and when I got ahead of myself she would slow me down and help me with understanding everything
We love, love, love Niranjana. She has been so fun to work with through this difficult time with our 1 month old. She is thorough, thoughtful, and brilliant! We have appreciated all of our docs, but she shines! Hopefully we haven't ruined her enjoyment of rooibos tea. Prov. 17:22 says, "A joyful heart is good medicine,
But a broken spirit dries up the bones." Nira definitely practices good medicine!
Niranjana was simply amazing. Delightful and informative, I couldn't have been happier with the level of care at this facility.
