She made a clear plan of action about the future and what to look for and what to expect . I felt validated for bringing in my son on the concerns I was seeing .

We want to give a shout out to Michelle - at the Herndon office who went the extra mile to help our daughter with a situation that needed immediate attention. Even though it was a super busy Monday - she took the time to make sure we received what we needed. We are so grateful for her assistance and care!

Dr. Barlow & his team have been treating my daughter since she was just days old. She is 7 now and has had 2 open hearts & 1 cath procedure. I wouldn’t trust anyone as much as I do these people with my child and her heart! My daughter was stubborn and really gave them a hard time as she was young, confused and inpatient. Him and his team NEVER made me or her feel bad about it and years later she now gets excited to see them. They have won us both over and I recommend them to anyone I know who’s child may have heart complications as well. I could never tell you in this review ALL the ways they have bent over backwards to help my child, given her the BEST care possible and going to bat for her health against health insurance companies. Him and his staff are truly the BEST in our book! You just don’t find people like this in the health care realm anymore … They truly care for their patients and want the very best for them and go to whatever lengths possible to see that your child gets exactly what they are in need of. They are NOT just Dr’s, Nurses or receptionists… they are ANGELS and ones we are incredibly grateful for!

If I could give more stars I would! Dr. Hasan and Hala have treated my daughter who has very complicated type of POTS since she was 16, and have given her quality of life back. Now, my other daughter needs them and we have her first follow up appointment today! Such caring doctors who take time to listen and very very thorough. I could not dream of a better team for my girls!

My family has needed to see many different specialist in our lifetime and no Dr compares to Dr Metha! He treats his patients and families with respect, doesn't undermine our intelligence, yet explains results,diagnosis and treatments thoroughly. He gives you the time you deserve. If he rates as 5 star, most other doctors rate maybe 1 or 2... yes he is that good!

The staff at the Fredericksburg Office were very accommodating. Scheduling was easy, they are very kind and professional. Dr. Surenderanath was very thorough with my daughter and is incredibly responsive to emails. A professional practice with true professionals!

Before coming to CHI in 2019, my daughter was experiencing so many symptoms. She had seen tons of doctors in WV, but was too complex for anyone to find any answers. She has had multiple rare disorders diagnosed by Dr. Abdullah. We are forever grateful for determination to get to the bottom of the problem. There are times you have to wait, but we don't mind because we know she will be giving us the same opportunity to ask questions and have a plan before we leave. The staff are also great, especially Michelle R. the front office supervisor. She is like family to us. Always going above and beyond when we need anything. If you are having a hard time getting answers....I would highly recommend checking out the Children's Heart Institute.
