I would not recommend Dr. Bustamante's office if you have more than one child. The office will not schedule two children at a time. Being a working mother I cannot be missing work two or more times to take my children to the Dr.

Wait was maybe 30 min past appointment time. In the room for 10 more before being seen. However, you realize why once you're seen. Bustamante takes time to answer questions or concerns and help your little one feel more comfortable which is hard in a doctor's office with strangers. The nurses are quick and efficient with vaccines. I was breastfeeding, and they let me sit and nurse my son after his shots so he calmed down before leaving. Very sweet staff. The other practitioners are also good
