I was not impressed with Dr. Rasalingam at all. She was very rude and cold during the appointment. When asked about the child's reaction to the food, I asked the child how he reaction. She then snapped at me and informed me that "interviewing a child" was not appropriate. She did not recommend allergy testing, even though that was the reason for the appointment. Overall, I was very disappointed with her services, would not recommend.

I was very disappointment, my grandchild was under Kelly Remington, RPA-C, prior to her retirement she took her time in examinations and explained in detail. I feel that Dr. Rasalingam is to modern and do not believe in prior treatments that was recommended or prescribe by former medical staff, she seem to quick to make changes. I felt that her examination was to quick, more in and out. It's not what you believe in, it's what works to keep the patient out of the hospital and beathing well.

Dr. R has been a great help to me over the years with controlling my child's asthma. Though we may not have always been the easiest of patients, she was always very patient with us. From the very first visit I felt extremely comfortable with her. I would highly recommend her

Agree with other reviewer. She is very short and told us that the only option is antihistamine allergy medicine on a daily basis. She also told us that allergy testing is inaccurate, so there is little point in testing. In short, she did not have much to offer at all.

I would not recommend Dr. Rasalingam, we were looking for a second opinion for my son. She did not listen to our concerns and just kept tell us some symptoms can not be explained. She clearly did not want to disagree with another Dr. The office was clean & the secretary was helpful. We were the only patients in the office, however she couldn't get us out fast enough.
