Excellent care and attention all around
I actually enjoy an appointment with Priya Rajendran - she gives me excellent care; explanations are always clear; concern is evident. I'm very pleased with her care.
As I've said in the past, Dr. Rajendran is fantastic - truly outstanding in every way, and I have seen a number of dermatologists over the years. I am grateful for her and I heartily recommend her anytime the subject comes up.
Dr. Rajendron is now one of my favorite doctors, even though this was my first time working with her. She is right up there with my Primary Care physician, Dr. Pinyavat. I felt listened to, cared for, and delighted to have such a great new doctor. She gave me her full attention, and never rushed me or dismissed my questions or concerns. She was quite personal and warm, and yet completely professional, finding the right balance for a wonderful bedside manner. I am totally satisfied with my experience and will definitely ask for her again in the future.
very caring doctor

it's such a strange experience to have someone be so nice to me! I didn't have to argue or repeat myself to have my concerns heard. I wish this doctor could be my GP!
Dr. Rajendran greets me and never rushes me. She makes sure all my questions are answered and how to use RX correctly.
Although she was trying her best, the explanation of the condition was poor and somewhat ambiguous. I still have the issue and still figuring out what to do about it
Maybe the best communicator and listener of any dr. I've visited. Dr. Rajendran is excellent communicator.
Dr. Rajendran was among the kindest, most helpful providers I have ever encountered. She explained everything regarding my condition to me very thoroughly and reassured me in a way that I very much appreciated. She also made sure that I fully understood everything she was telling me and have me space for questions and clarifications. She was so kind, and the visit was so enjoyable, I wish all physicians were like her. I plan to continue with her as my primary dermatologist.
Aside from it being very difficult to schedule meetings at this clinic, the care is excellent.
THE COMMUNICATIONS WERE EXCELLENT EACH STEP OF THE WAY. THE PROCEDURE WAS CAREFULLY EXPLAINED AND MY CHOICES WERE MADE CLEAR. I WAS INVOLVED IN THE DECISION ABOUT THE FOCUS OF OUR TIME AND PROCEDURE.

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!
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.

love my new Derm Dr.
Efficient and respectful of time; explained in a way that I could understand. Really listened.
Dr. R was very patient and clarified things I didn't understand. She even called the next day (Saturday) to check up on things.
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.
She was amazing.
Excellent! clear plan of care. provided helpful suggestions to further improve my health care-eg practical ideas for sun protection etc. Very thorough.

Very good experience.

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.
I have recommended this doctor to others!
Liked her detail.
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.
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.
