The treatment received from Dr. Kandaswamy has greatly improved the quality of my life. After years of treatment by an allergist, my asthma and recurrent bronchial infections were out of control. She began a multi-faceted treatment plan following a more complex diagnosis and it has interrupted the cycle of asthma attacks and bronchitis.

I have not been pleased with her lack of bedside manner. She does not encourage the patient to ask more than two questions. (I had a good question that she ended up altering her answer to). As I asked the question she chuckled and started for the door. I felt this was rude and slightly humiliating. Go to someone who thinks their patients and their patients questions are important.
