We absolutely LOVE Dr. Yusuf and her staff. They are so amazing and even more amazing to my babies. I have four sweet children and she has seen them all since before they left the hospital. I am so grateful for her and the staff. I feel like I'm with family when we go in. She is a very intelligent lady and I feel so blessed that my children see her.

Dr. Yusuf is the best pediatrician we have ever had. She always goes the extra mile to ensure our children are well. She called me on a Sunday afternoon to ask how my 8 month old was feeling when he had the flu. She follows up regularly with us, gives us free samples of formula if she has it, and her staff truly cares for the patient as well. She knows us on a first-name basis. When my second baby was born, he had jaundice and then had an infection. Both times she did everything she could to get

Dr. Yusuf always gives the best care and quickly takes us in if my boys are sick. My youngest Jacob has been her patient since his birth in 2009 and my other son Joseph since we found Dr. Yusuf in 2007 . she has been an awesome Dr and her staff are great. Friendly and always help me in all our medical needs I will continue my care with her and her staff until my boys are adults. I recommended her to anyone! She's a direct to the point kind of doctor and puts the kids first.

Dr. Yusuf has treated my 3 children for the last ten years. My children have ranged from newborn to teenagers with Dr. Yusuf... She is very good in making all my children comfortable. In any situation. I have never felt rushed in an appotiment with concerns for my children's health. Dr Yusif is very compassionate and dedicated to the well being of her patient's and their parent's even calling to check on them after hours to see if my children are felling better. We reccomend Dr. Yusuf 100%.

Our grandson has a cleft lip and spent 2-weeks in the NICU after birth. Since leaving the hospital he is having difficulty gaining weight and after 1-month he has not gained any weight. He went for his first appointment with Dr. Yusuf, but she refused to see him since the NICU Dr. had not completed her note and forwarded them to her. She would not even reschedule him until the provider completes her note. I understand that communication must happen between Dr's. but to refuse care is malpractice
