Every time she sees my children, they get well quickly. She knows what is wrong as soon as see sees them and examines them. She is also very humble and kind.

Horrible person! i went in with a sick child and after making us wait for 30 mins they said " we cannot see your sick child unless you pay us balance" and we were in talks with our insurance company to pay them! the doctor who cannot see a sick child for money is not a good human being at all!! very very dissapointed!

Avoid this Dr. Office. Staff is highly unorganized and mixes patients up. I get a call from their office advising if we took our new born to hospital later to find out they called wrong number. My new born was seen by a subsititue doctor with follow up scheduled for Thursday. I called day before to confirm appointment to find out they don't open on Thursdays nor have an any appointment scheduled for my son. Tough to get appointments in general and don't care for your child at all. Safe your self
