She is a terrible human being. She called my grandmother a corpse my first time meeting with her. She gave my sister an anxiety attack and she would leave the room before dealing with Dr. Thaya again. She told another family member that she wanted to resolve the issue aka my grandmother before her vacation. Avoid her at all costs she is inhuman.

Wow! What a friendly doctor and she’s very thorough. She spent over 30 minutes gathering my past medical history and conversating with me. She has an excellent bedside manner too. I highly recommend Dr. Thaya if you’re having Pulmonary issues.

To say that Dr. Thayalakulasingham is a good doctor would be one hell of an understatement. I was fortunate to be under her care very recently. Exceptionally patient and caring, she spends as much time as is needed and takes great care to explain everything to the greatest detail. That she genuinely cares about her patient is apparent in just a few moments. I have zero hesitation in recommending her. Thank you, Dr.Thaya.
