BEWARE of this practice and staff. It has been 10 months and we are still waiting for reimbursement for visits we were forced to pay out of pocket for our newborn (while waiting for our insurance to kick in retro to his date of birth). The practice has yet to resolve the situation after many calls...more

My family has been with Dr Gotfried for 25 years! She is fantastic with kids of all ages and she takes time to talk with you so that you are not feeling rushed out of the office! The whole practice has great Dr's.
