We decided to drive the distance to Lubbock to use this pedi cardiologist. I can honestly say this was one of the most wonderful and comfortable experiences that I have had at a doctors office. The doctor was knowledgeable, kind and so kid friendly. My 3 year old loved him! He explained things very well and made us feel very comfortable. The staff and technician we interacted with were helpful, friendly, knowledgeable and unlike any doctor staff we have dealt with. I cannot say enough good!
