Dr. Self and her staff are simply amazing! I have 2 ADHD kids with sensory issues that can be quite challenging to work with. Dr. Self works wonders with them both. She engages the children, gets on their level and ensures that they feel safe and comfortable. She even makes their visits fun!

Dr. Self and her staff are so kind and very professional. My children literally count down the days until their next visit! The office is clean, happy, and engagingly decorated for children. The staff is always cheerful and ready to befriend each patient on a personal level. All three of my children have very different personalities, and the staff work so hard to engage each of them and make it a comfortable, positive experience. Dr. Self is personable and knowledgeable. Highly recommend!
