Dr. Jester is so so sweet. She just has a way with working with children. She is very patient with them and is able to explain things in a way my child can understand. She is warm and fuzzy and my daughter feels safe opening up to her.

Let me preface this with I LOVE Dr Jester, however her office staff this particular day was AWFUL! I called at 1 pm to leave a message for her. I was assured I’d get a call back. I was left on hold for 12 minutes, then I called back at 4:30 when no call was forthcoming. I was left on hold for 7 minutes and ASSURED I would get a call back by the nurse by 5:15. I called back at 5:30 pm when no call occurred and was left on HOLD for 28 minutes...no, it’s not a typo...28 minutes, during which the office CLOSED and LEFT me on HOLD..again, no phone call back. Thank goodness my daughter is not severely ill, just in a lot of pain which btw, is weird for a 7 yr old... again, I LOVE Dr Jester, but I’m filing a formal complaint regarding the staff treatment, which usually isn’t this bad, but can be, on the phone! Btw, I’m a physician and I would never allow my office staff to treat patients this way! I’m happy to take this down, IF it’s addressed....

I thought she was a great physician until she didnt tell me about a diagnosis she placed in my child's chart. It's okay to diagnose, but that information, which is pertinent, should be relayed to the parent I shouldnt find out about certain diagnoses from reciewing my child's medical records.

Dr Jester is an excellent professional and caring doctor. Our son had to undergo a course of multiple vaccinations and a treatment after injury and it was all done in the best possible manner with least stress for him. I can highly recommend Dr Jester.

Dr. Jester has been an awesome physician to my three daughters for the past 16 years. My oldest is now 21 and whenever she has a doctor's appointment she often says how she wishes she could see Dr. Jester. It is a great feeling to have a pediatrician that you can have complete trust. She is truly a part of my family.

My oldest daughter was a patient of Dr. Jester until she "graduated" on to another physican and it was a sad time for us both. Dr. Jester is caring and patient. I am lucky to still have her with my teen and will always recommend Dr. Jester. Outstanding.
