in Yonkers, NY |
Dr. Heptulla is an excellent and highly experienced pediatric endocrinologist who truly cares about her patients and her patients' caregivers. My daughter who is a Type 1 diabetic is very fortunate to be under her care as she takes the time to explain to us about her condition and listens to her issues and concerns. Despite her extremely busy practice, she is very accessible and returns calls in a timely manner. A big plus is that her staff also care about her patients the way she does!
