    Dr Sood is excellent. He is very calm and explains any questions big or small in great detail. He was gentle with my son and praised him when he had finished the procedures. I would recommend Dr Sood for anyone looking for an experienced paediatrician especially in allergies as his knowledge and experience is second to none.

    We contacted Dr. Rajiv for an urgent issue on a Sunday. Dr. Rajiv was super helpful, he was very attentive and thorough in his questions and explained to us in details what was the issue and put our minds to ease. Hi diagnosis was spot on, he issued the required medicine immediately and followed up to make sure I get them in the same day. He even made sure to give me a call later the day to check on our baby boy and that everything is ok. Amazing care and cannot be more thankful to him.

    I took my 7y/o to Dr Sood for recurring ringworm. He was very professional and friendly and explained every thing clearly. After the appt I still had a few questions regarding medication and dosage. I emailed Dr Sood with my questions and each time got a reply back. Would definitely recommend.
