Love her!! She has done a fantastic job with helping my son and our family with dealing with his medical issues. She has contacted my sons school when they wouldn't help with his IEP and has never gave up on finding him whatever resources he needed with his ADHD and Autism. She is very understanding to everything my husband and I are going through and I would be lost without her. She takes the time with my son and he loves her and he is very comfortable with her. She is just amazing!!

We love Dr. Prasad. She is wonderful with all 4 of my children and is a great provider. We spent 5 hours in the ER without answers for my son's condition. The next day Dr. Prasad asked us to come in, even though the ER did not think we needed follow-up. She figured out it was an allergic reaction called serum sickness right away. If it wasn't for Dr. Prasad, we may have had a worse result the next time. She is great and the office staff is awesome, too!

Dr. Prasad is absolutely wonderful! She is very sweet and kind. As new parents, there's so much to be learned and so many questions to be answered, she always listens without making you feel rushed or judged. Dr. Prasad is always so thorough with every explanation that we don't end up needing to ask any follow up questions. She actually takes the time to read notes from previous appointments and always follows up with any thing we discussed previously (no matter how small of an issue it may have been). I absolutely trust Dr. Prasad and would recommend her to everyone.

Dr.Prasad is phenomenal! She is very sweet & her quality of care is priceless. Each time we come to the lake ridge office my daughter feels very comfortable with her. We wouldn't choose anyone else. I would recommend her to anyone looking for an outstanding pediatrician!

Dr. Prasad is an excellent doctor. She is not only extremely knowledgeable, but compassionate as well. It's amazing to see how much better quality medical care can be when delivered by someone who actually cares about their patients AND is very good at what they do. This, I feel, sets her apart from the rest, and I highly suggest that if you are looking for a doctor that will listen to your concerns, take them seriously and work with you to find the best possible solutions to your child's specific needs, you should make an appointment and find out for yourself why she is loved so dearly by her patients and their parents alike.

Dr. Prasad is amazing! As a new mom I have several questions and worries but Dr. Prasad has always taken her time answering all my questions. We plan on Dr. Prasad being her PCP until Jazmin is 18! :) I would definitely recommend her to any patient.

My son Domaniq sees Dr. Prasad and I totally love her, she definitely has a way of making you feel comfortable and helps you understand how to do things right. Domaniq has Asthma and I always have anxiety when he gets sick but most of the time she tells me you're doing everything right and then I feel better. I love her to the moon and will continue to see her for his health care
