I’ve been bringing my 10 year old here since he was 2 and I had a baby girl and she now goes here too . Elizabeth is the best pediatrician ever. Although I do wish for her to have a bigger place to better serve her patience she’s still amazing

Dr. Yakubu is truly one of the best. She was my provider for all of my children in their pediatric and adolescent years. Her and her staff treated me with kindness and respect and she was very helpful with explaining to me medications and shots that my children needed through-out their teenage years. She kept me up-to-date with the latest vaccines for their wellness. She is truly one of the best.

This was the worst Pediatric office I have ever been in. I went over there to see how my grand niece was doing and to take my niece and my grandniece to a late breakfast. They had been in the waiting room 3.5 hours waiting and had not yet been waited on. The floor was filthy and dirty and the waiting room space was far to small and not child friendly for the amount of people in that office. Above all else the administrator and the receptionist was snappy and rude. They had a whole bowl of candy-

Dr. Yakubu is an awesome doctor. She is mild yet firm with children. She talks to the patient to find out what's going on with them. Her office is sometimes very busy, so there ma be a bit of a wait.
