Dr Kumaresan is wonderful. In the past, my experience with psychiatrists is that they tend to be very cursory in their questioning and interview with the patient. Dr Kumaresan far exceeded my expectations. He was thorough, he listened, and I could tell he genuinely cared about my son. He didn't have a preconceived plan about my son's treatment. It seems like he treats every patient as a unique individual and adjusts to meet their specific needs. He Is very responsive to questions through the cook childrens's portal and has been great about calling to check In to see how my son was adjusting to the medication. He Is truly one of the best, kindest doctors I've encountered.
