Dr. Kurian was so pleasant to talk she listened to our questions and provided detailed answers. She spent good enough time with us vs. some of the other experience we have with provider is where they rush through. She was not on her laptop/system which is a big issue these days when we visit provider office as it kills the patient/provider connect.

she has been very inconsistent and made my life so stressful. one visit she says she has no concerns with the baby and the next visit she is freaking out about his weight. she's extremely old school and either not a big advocate of breastfeeding or completely uneducated on that subject. She even told me to breastfeed less even though my baby is struggling to grow. She never has answers to my questions and just suggests medication. She never remembers my babies history etc
