I use Dr. Vorster for my children. He makes them feel very comfortable. He picks and plays with them and we always leave with a smile on our faces! Sometimes there is a little bit of a wait but that's in any office you go to plus if you've ever worked on the other side you would understand! We did have to wait longer than usual ONE time but there was a mentally handicapped adult ahead of us who has some trouble le communicating so that was understandable. The staff is very friendly as well!
