if you see a new doctor and you ask the them to refer to your history they should. not do what they want to do and not talk to you about it. That's my frustration with Elmhurst, the bed side manner is very bad.

Dr. krishnan has been instrumental in my mental and physical wellbeing..... dr krishnan continues to support me and my family and has become integral in the management of these issues. dr krishnan has been supportive and extremely empathetic. she genuinely cares about her patients and listens intently to all my concerns. ... I realize this is not always the case. I think dr krishnan is a perfect example of what a provider should strive to be. her professionalism, knowledge and bedside manner are commendable.

Drs. Krishnan and ... and every single nurse, clerk, and administrator I have seen at this practice are professional, kind, and genuinely seem to care about me. I honestly have never loved going to the doctor- it always seemed so rushed and confusing. I LOVE seeing Dr Krishnan. She is kind, patient, and treats me like we are a team. I have recommended this practice to several friends, and they all agree with the above statements. Thank you, Edwards Elmhurst Lake Street folks!

I had my first Dr for over 25 yrs. I thought I would never find another Dr that would be as good as my first . I was wrong ! She exceeded any expectations that I had and s even better than my first Dr. Dr. Krishnan is the best ! We need more Dr's like her !
