We just started seeing the doctor. She was very informative and I feel like she will be a great fit for me and my boys. Had to wait a bit longer because it was our first appt and had to fill out all the paperwork, but it was also a same day appt. I called at about 9am and they fit me in at 10:20am. The office staff was great and even helped carry our car seats. They have two waiting rooms one for sick kiddos and one for healthy kiddos.
