Dr Mia Lagunda and her staff are beyond amazing! I will definitely take all of my babies to her for a very long time. Her waiting room Is empty everytime we get there which is great because a lot of times there are really sick kids in waiting rooms, which can pass on another sickness. They are wonderful and scheduling people apart which makes it really nice and makes the visit pretty fast. She is super caring and actually listens to everything you have to say. Definitely one of the best drs??
