Tarrytown, NY |
We have been seeing Dr. Kairam for last one year. He is extremely dedicated and diligent . He doesn't want to treat the symptoms . Finds out the root cause of the problem and then treats it. He will spend enough time as needed. Does n't rush through. He evens calls us on Sunday to check / follow up if needed. He is a wonderful doctor who cares about his patients. I would highly recommend him. One advice, just listen to him carefully before you answer, because he reads each and every word you sp

Last week at Autism parents support group,I have the opportunity to listen a Buddhist monk Lama Pema,who talk about meditation, paying attention to taughts and feelings without judgment, listening with nonjudgmental acceptance of self and child . Life can be a challenging and stressful for parents of a child with autism. Meditation is a spiritual resource. Thank you Dr Kairam.

The best thing about Kairam is the way he got involved in our lives. He could just treat my son's condition and be done with it but he takes time and looks into his overall being. Also, he is good with autism. He knows the condition well and makes sure that my son gets the right treatment. He has helped me to get appropriate services from the board of education as well. Mr. Autism indeed.

Dr. Kairam is a blessing to the autism community. HIs knowledge about autism surpasses anyone I have met. He only prescribes medicines when they are absolutely necessary and explains everything clearly so you understand what is best for your child. He is also an advocate who is not afraid to fight for your child. Rob Bernstein
