Dr. Calvin is very thorough and patient as she examines her patients. She sees my 7-year-old and my 9 month old (who has been with her since he was 4 months old). She explains everything in a way that is easy to understand, and answers all my questions. She works well with both of my kids and is patient with the baby, taking her time to get accurate results.
Dr. Calvin is very professional, intelligent, thorough, patient, and warm. My child has been a patient for almost two years. There is a child-friendly waiting room with lots of toys and a TV. Everyone in Dr. Calvin's office is pleasant to deal with. We are very pleased with Dr. Calvin and her practice.

Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
