    The location I visited was Brownsville Texas. She is an awsome doctor. She made me feel at ease with the diagnostic, was attentive to my concerns and informative about my daughter's health. Dr was also thorough on my daughter's chart/check up. There might be a 15 min wait before seeing her, but the time you wait, you get back during consultation. Great overall.
