Dr Scharf has taken care of our two children for many years. She is outstanding. When we were new parents she was amazingly helpful teaching us about what to worry about and what not to. She is very kind with the kids and really easy to understand. We never feel rushed, and trust her completely. The office she works in is a bit dated, but they are currently renovating it. The staff there is okay -- but the DR's are amazing. A great place to take your kids.
