Dr. Rajendra and her staff were very friendly. Dr. Rajendra is efficient without seeming rushed. she took time to explain and educate.

SHC Patient, Jun 2019

For my job, I am familiar with research on physician-patient communication and physician training in communication -- I have to say, this doctor was the gold standard of how a doctor should interact and communicate with a patient during a doctor's visit; she was kind, personable, listened, took the time to explain everything carefully and discussed the evidence base for her recommendations. Wonderful doctor!

SHC Patient, Jun 2019

SHC Patient, May 2019

Dr. Rajendran was extremely friendly and set me at ease with her personal greeting and smile. She explained my exam process, gave me a thorough exam, took care of localized issues and kept me comfortable and informed. She managed the stressful job of a full body exam with comfort and relaxed attitude that is much appreciated by me.

SHC Patient, May 2019

Efficient and respectful of time; explained in a way that I could understand. Really listened.

SHC Patient, May 2019

love my new Derm Dr.

SHC Patient, Apr 2019

Dr. R was very patient and clarified things I didn't understand. She even called the next day (Saturday) to check up on things.

SHC Patient, Apr 2019

Dr. Rajendran is exceptional. If you offered a "6" rating for exceptional, I'd give her that in every category - her professionalism, communication, thoroughness, thoughtful response to questions, "bedside manner" in what can feel like a vulnerable situation, and all this expertise with a very authentic human warmth and humilty. Also, as I told her, she gave the most thorough and careful full body skin check I've ever had in my life, and I have had many over the decades.

SHC Patient, Apr 2019

She was amazing.

SHC Patient, Mar 2019

SHC Patient, Mar 2018

This is the best experience I've had with a dermatologist ever. All of my concerns were considered and taken seriously and Doctor R even planned around my breastfeeding, which was very important to me.

SHC Patient, Mar 2018

I have recommended this doctor to others!

SHC Patient, Mar 2018

Liked her detail.

SHC Patient, Mar 2018

Interaction was good, though some of it felt a little artificial or condescending, when my provider showed too much sympathy for what is not a major problem. But it was really great overall.

SHC Patient, Mar 2018

Dr. Rajendra was thorough and professional. I appreciated that she took the time to explain my condition and discuss options for treating as well as being willing to explain the underlying biology and disagreements in the dermatology community about its causes. The medication she prescribed is working very well.

SHC Patient, Mar 2018

Dr. Rajendran was excellent. She listened to my concerns and thoroughly provided answers to my questions she gave me all options for the treatment of my nasal lesion.
