Dr. Schening and the nurse we saw today were very nice and thorough! My 3 year old is very shy, and the doctor was super sweet with him, trying to get him to feel comfortable with the necessary checkup routines. On our way out, the lady at the front desk was very friendly and was engaging in fun conversation with my son. :) You can really tell the people who work here love their jobs!

My son was complaining about arms and legs pain ever since he turned 2 years old. Every time we saw Dr Schening I would mention my concerns and got a goofy looks in response. One time she actually was bold enough to ask if I am the one who is making him sick? Finally after 2 years she ordered some test. Turned out he's vitD was very low!!! Just recently we went again.... another awful experience:( . Terrible bedside manner yet first to discipline the kids.
Due to HIPPA constraints, I cannot fully answer your concerns with my office. However, if a patient / child is doing things to destroy my office property, doing something that will get them harmed, or being so disruptive that I cannot carry on a conversation with a parent, then yes, I will verbally ask the patient to have better manners.

Two weeks in advance of my baby girl's appointment I delivered the paperwork to the office in an envelope. On the day of, April 26th, the office couldn't find it and I had to fill out the six pages again. I brought the records, in case. The NP ignored my concerns of a skin rash and when to begin giving vitamins, and accused me of abusing my child because of the presence of Mongolian spots - there since birth - until Dr. looked and said, the politically correct term is slate gray Mongolian spots
Due to HIPAA constraints, I cannot fully reply, but if we had thought you were beating / abusing / neglecting your child(ren), we would call DCFS. We give education to parents on how many physicians can think slate gray spots are bruises. If you would like to discuss this further with me, please feel free to call the office.
