Dr. Childers was fantastic at first. Very considerate, kind and caring with my children. That all changed a few visits into their care. My daughter struggled with a few things that I will not disclose for her security. She ended up in the hospital for one of these issues and has been out for several months. She is thriving! We went to her follow-up visit and when we tried to schedule another appointment for her, we were simply waved off. We tried to talk to the receptionist and explain and she told us to leave, that we did not have to schedule another appointment. So we followed their instructions because their the doctors, right? Nope. They decided to call CPS because we did not schedule an appointment. You all told us that we did not need to, that was very unnecessary. My children are well cared for, safe and happy, and they want for naught. We will never be going back to you guys. Our family wishes you great luck and success in your endeavors.

We have seen Dr Childers for about 8 years now. He is never in a rush and takes time to listen to the kids and parents. His staff has always been friendly. I am so glad we found Dr Childers after our original Pediatrician left state on a very short notice.

Rude secretary. Smarts off and hangs up. Have in person appointment issues due to covid. I am a home bound disabled Veteran and my autistic daughter is on IEP with the school, and goes in person. She is on meds for focus, which the doctor took her off of immediately without warning by not refilling when she was out. No refill unless you make a visit?? That is be, you can talk to us on the video appointment you provide on the website. This is probably a money scheme to wastefully bill the insurance. Once her regular pediatrician resigned, they went downhill in quality of health service. They won't even reference me to her old doc. IMO: The whole Thomas Health Representatives are a bunch of malpracticing bullies.

We have been going to Dr. Childers for 16 years and absolutely LOVE him and all of his staff. He is soooo easy to communicate with and he’s extremely friendly. We always love going to his office and that’s extremely important when your kiddos are sick. I am dreading the day that my kids age out! Honestly, 5 stars isn’t high enough! He deserves even more. I can’t say enough about him. Don’t miss out on an amazing doctor. Thank you Dr. Childers for being so amazing with the parents and the kids!!!

My kids have been with Dr childers for 10 years and we have never had a problem with him or his staff. My children love him as do me and my husband. He takes his time and communicates with his patients and the parents...so much so that I often forget what questions I wanted to ask, lol. We have a lot of fun in his office, he's very thorough and good at what he does. Thank you Dr childers!!!
