She is really a good person and the best pediatrician I have seen recently. she listens to you patiently and responds to every question. She won't let you go without a question unanswered. I have already recommended many and will recommend !!

This doctor is disgusting. I brought my son in because he's sick. The first thing that she does while listening to his chest is cough on top of him TWICE. Then to top it all off she sneezes while covering her mouth then doesn't wash her hands and touches my son afterwards. How is she a doctor and doesn't take care of her hygiene. I DO NOT recommend this nasty doctor to anyone. The wait time is ridiculously long and the staff can give out a smart attitude. Try to avoid if possible!!
