Nestled in the suburbs of Studio City is the household of Priya, her husband, and their almost-two-year-old son, Donny. Donny was diagnosed with a rare condition called craniosynostosis which left him in need of skull surgery at just four months old. As new parents, life is stressful enough but for Priya her worries were compounded by her child’s diagnosis.
One morning, Donny woke up with a fever and cough which progressively worsened as the day went on. She tried to get an appointment with her pediatrician, but was dismayed when they told her there were no more appointments available for that day. Not wanting to wait, Priya did some online searching and discovered Heal. Within an hour, a doctor arrived at her door.
"Dr. Salama was great; very knowledgable, friendly, and caring towards my son. I felt very, very safe with Donny under her care." Priya even noted that she felt like by the end of the visit, it was like Donny had known the doctor his whole life.
"Heal is a priceless addition to my family because it gives me peace of mind to know I have a great doctor on call to take care of the most precious thing I have, my son."
