      When I went to Dr. Nanda, I was tired of dealing with doctors who wouldn't listen to me. As soon as I met her, I was so comfortable with her. She listening to everything I had to say. It never seemed like she was in a rush, always taking her time to make sure she was thorough. Without her, I'm not sure where I would be right now. She gave me my diagnosis, treated my physical symptoms, and was there for me the whole way. Even my symptoms confused every other doctor, she said she would figure it out, and she did. I was so sad when she left Rainbows, but I know how excited she was to go to Seattle. And she made sure to set me up with another doctor and introduce us while she was still in Cleveland. Dr. Nanda is a great doctor that I would recommend to anyone.

      I started seeing Dr. Nanda when I was 17. I was really sad to see her leave. She was always really kind and also really good about calling me and thoroughly explaining my test results. She put me on a medication that I was first skeptical about, however, now all of my blood tests are back in the normal range as they were highly elevated for over a year and I feel great!

      Dr. Nanda used to be my doctor, and when I was first diagnosed, she helped me get through my emotional and medical needs methodically and kindly. I just finished my treatment and am recovering. I just want to thank her for getting me this far.

      Dr. Nanda was my son's rheumatologist in Ohio at Rainbow Babies and Children's before she transferred to Seattle, and she was a wonderful doctor. She was very good with the children and a very caring and understanding doctor. She always took the time to explain diagnoses and treatments and answer any questions about his disorder. We will miss her here!
