I was referred to Dr. Little's office by our pediatrician for my 7 week old's Stridor. We unfortunately didnt even see the doctor. After waiting 1 1/2 hours, we inquired with one of the nurses regarding the wait. We were rudely told the doctor was currently doing dictation, there were 2 other patients that needed to be seen first, and that she didn't do the scheduling. No apology, nothing. The wait and the response showed such a lack of concern that we decided to leave and find alternative care.

Dr. Little has been treating my daughter since she was 2 and my son since he was 4. He has removed both of my children's tonsils and adenoids and as a last result, performed sinus surgery on both of my children. I love how he is so personal with his patients and how much time he gives you during your visit. The staff is extremely friendly and the PA staff is amazing. I wouldn't take my children anywhere else.
