  • My doctor is very hands on. He never makes me feel stupid for even the most stupid questions I have asked. He will talk with us and asnwer questions as long as it takes. He is also very gentle with my son and gives him time to relax before immediately doing the checkup.

  • Our Family Doc actually LISTENS to me and my input. She's all for western medicine and pills and stuff, but also takes my preference to avoid pills if at all possible. That and longevity, we've been going to her for the past 7-7.5 years, since my son was about 4 months old.

  • He's funny, wears funny hats for the kids. Each room in his office is a different theme (outer space, clowns, disney). They always call back quickly after hours. They are available easily.

  • My kids doctor is AWESOME!!! He is friendly, knowledgeable, he talks TO my children and not about or at them, he explains things, he takes the time to answer questions, and he treats us with courtesy and respect.
