I could not be happier with PIH Pediatrics and Dr. Bhargava. She is incredibly competent and kind. We always feel like our son is being cared for-- and we feel supported as parents. Parenting is hard, but we're always comfortable asking questions because Dr. Bhargava never talks down to us or makes us feel like we're wasting her time. It's super comforting to know our provider genuinely cares about our child.
