“Words will not express our gratitude to RxDx Team for the support given during this difficult time. These times of crisis really help us understand the deeper meaning of solid relationships.
Much love.”

I visited Dr Sunita with my fetal echo tests to decide whether to continue with pregnancy or not. My baby was identified to have severe cardiac anomalies and I wasn’t sure on what I needed to do. Extremely friendly doctor who has empathy to our situation to guide us on best possible course of action.
