    I found Dr Bajaj to be a very kind and patient person. My son can sometimes be very hyper and hard to get to concentrate. Dr Bajaj was very understanding and took her time with him, she was not fazed by him and his endless questions. Our appointment did over run and I never felt any pressure even though I was aware we would make her late for her next patient.
