      I brought my newborn for her first check with the pediatrician at 2 days old. YOU NEVER GET A 2ND CHANCE FOR A 1ST IMPRESSION. There was no separate entrance for sick kiddos. ( I let that pass.) When we were finally seen the nurse COUGHED in the crook of her arm and I said "are you sick?" She replied "Yeah, it's just a little cold but I'm ok. We're understaffed and you know, I gotta keep working!" OH HELL NO. I said "Really? And you're around kids, infants and newborns all day?" She later said that she can put a mask on and use hand sanitizer if that "made me feel better." I was livid. I'm bringing in my brand new, 2 day old newborn for a check up and it's ok for her to be sick because they're "UNDERSTAFFED"?! What parent would be ok with this?! At least this nurse was friendly and gentle with my baby. Ok I thought...maybe the doc would make up for this....
    NOPE! When Dr. Modi finally came in, there was no warmth, no introduction, no greeting and she was in there for less than 5 mins. This was our very first appointment and this is the way I'm first meeting the pediatrician for my new baby. UNACCEPTABLE. Dr. Modi coughed and I asked her if she was sick. She replied "No! It's just allergies...when I smell certain things I cough!" Are you fucking kidding me? That was it for me, in addition to her not even taking out her stethoscope to examine my baby. She only checked her skin, opened her diaper and checked her hips. THAT'S IT. She didn't even put the diaper back on or even try to comfort/talk to my baby as she was crying from being naked and cold. She then asked me "so do you have any questions?" That was the end of the "examination". I asked a few questions and she was condescending and cold, and told me she'd see my baby again in a week. It's already hard enough to find a doc who cares, especially for your kids. I'm so disappointed this meeting was a huge let down.

    Workplace culture, attitude and service start from the top, down. It then made sense to me why it was "ok" for the sick nurse to come to work...it's because the boss (Dr.Modi) has low standards and seemingly doesn't care.

    The one plus side to this 1st and last visit: there was a student doc shadowing Modi. His name was Luke and he was warm and friendly. He introduced himself to me and my father in law who was with me, shook our hands and smiled. Dr. Modi could learn more from this guy about care and bedside manner than he can from however many years of experience she has.

      Dr. Modi was our pediatrician at San Dimas Community Hospital when my daughter was born.  When she came to "Examine" her she was very cold, and pretty rough with the new born baby.  She made no attempt to soothe her, talk to her or even ask her name.   She was condescending, rude,  and seemed like it was a bother for her to leave her office to come to the hospital. She only gave us 5 minutes of her time and acted like she was in a hurry and anxious to get out of there.

    Needless to say, we chose to go elsewhere for followup appointments.

      We have been with Doctor Modi since leo was born. There has been some staff changes since we have started here but Alex is always nice and prompt on anything that needs to be done. The office is always clean and comfortable. Doctor Modi is very straight to the point and answers all my questions.
