Dr. Charles is nice and informative as well the staff. However, hands washing does not seem to practice frequently before examining kids. Especially with what's happening with covid, they need to be mindful of that.

Staff is nice. Office is clean. The downfall with this office is that they have chosen to charge patients extra to get a flu test or strep test when you can get them free at urgent care... $45 each to be exact and if you don’t have the money they make no exception you have to pay right there and then. So my insurance pays her for the visit and then she charges extra for a routine test. I think it’s absurd and abuse of power.

Being a first time mom I had many concerns about baby, especially picking a pediatrician. Dr. Charles is humble and truly demonstrated a concern and love for our daughter. She is very knowledgeable and gives great advise. I schedule appointments easily and quickly. Her office is extremely clean and kid friendly, as is her staff. I have called and received a response within a 30 minutes if she's with other patients. For any emergency she was able to see us immediately. I recommend her!

Weekend receptionist is wonderful and all of the staff are so kind. I am usually able to get right in when my daughter is sick, especially on the weekends! Dr. Charles is sweet and gentle. Clean and bright office. Very pleased! :)

My 3 children have been seeing Dr. Charles regularly for almost 17 years (we 'followed' her from her previous practice). She is professional and caring, friendly, and interacts nicely with kids of all ages. She is open to discussing any concerns with parent or child. The office staff is courteous and we do not ever have to wait very long.
