Clearly one of the best doctors you could find for your child. Dr. Dewlingvtakes plenty of time to listen, and examine her patients. We could absolutely not be happier to have her as pediatrician of our son and daughter.

Dr. Dewling has seen our 3 children from toddlers through middle school and now high school. Although she was great in the early years, her help treating our teenagers has been immeasurable. She has taken the time to listen to our teens and get them the individual help they need. Thank you!

Our children have been with Dr. Dewling since they were born. We just completed their annual well check this week. As our children grow well into their teens, to say Dr. Dewling is a very experience and knowledgeable pediatrician and kind would be a understatement. Simply put, Dr. Dewling is THE BEST! All these years, whatever problems our children have, its alway one phone call away and children get best medical care. She goes much beyond as a pediatrician of the children. She treats children as her own children, if not more. The clinic also have a very friendly and professional nurse and administrative team. We feel very lucky that our children have Dr. Dewling and her team.

Dr. Dewling is very professional and is a great listener. The nurses on staff are so good which is so important on shot visits. Anytime I call with a question the response time is always quick. I love that they work with our schedule! We have two kids and they are always able to schedule appointments together which minimizes visits as my husband and I work full time. I highly recommend Dr. Dewling and am so glad we chose her as our pediatrician!

We have been going to JOHNS CREEK PEDIATRIC for 13 years (Dr. Dewling). There practice has steadily declined and is HORRIBLE. They continue to over bill and then when I ask for the reason they say they can't tell me because they are in billing and that's a clinical matter. All they would say is that if they spend more than 5-10 minutes with you they change the code to a complex visit. So my followup was complex? They literally shined a light in my daughters eye. It's all about the money for them now. When I repeatedly ask them to call me to explain what was considered complex, they would not call me back. Then the manager said she would call the sheriff if I called back???? Then they said sue us if you want your records. Are you kidding me. Also, don't get your eyes tested during your well check, or ask any questions or get a refill, they will bill you for all of that as well. HORRIBLE HORRIBLE HORRIBLE. Also, expect to wait forever. They are never on time.

Dr. Dewling and her colleagues at Johns Creek Pediatrics are the best. Dr. Dewling has been our pediatrician for 17.5 years - upon the birth of my oldest child. She is always thorough - being sure to take care of the body and mind of our children. We never feel rushed, my children adore her and my husband and I trust her to always take care of our children like they were her own. Excellent doctor, amazing human.

We have been seeing Dr. Dewling since my first born 11 years ago and we absolutely love her. She takes her time with the kids and listens to their questions and answers. She has helped us with small issues and complex emotional issues all with intelligence and respect. I can’t say enough good things about Dr. Dewling and everyone in the office. Highly recommend.
