We love Dr Diamond! So good with the kids. Present. Attentive. Knowledgeable. Takes time to address all questions. So kind. Just great vibes all around. See that in all the staff, as well.

We enjoy *Dr. Diamond's bedside manner. He is very calm, well-spoken, patient and explains things in laymans terms.

I really liked Dr. Diamond! He was very "kid friendly", listened to my concerns, and explained what was going on and the next steps for treatment well.

Dr. Diamond was incredible. I typically do not like doctors as I feel most are often rushed to find the easiest diagnosis to move you on to the next person. Dr. Diamond was quite the opposite. He took his time, fully addressed my concerns, and offered a treatment path with my input. Overall he ensured I was well taken care of and confident we're on the right path.

Dr. Diamond is phenomenal. He has a great bedside manner. He takes the time to do thorough assessment, explain his findings in a way that not only I can understand, but in a way that my 14 year old can understand. He answered every question and concern that we had.

Dr Diamond is fantastic. We chose to wait and see him over others that were open during the weekend because we trust him.
