Best doctor, so appreciative to have her

Dr Smith addressed our concerns and offered solutions we were all comfortable with. She took time to understand the problems and concerns and together we came up with a plan of action. We could not be more confident and pleased with her as our sons doctor.

Our child was borderline for needing early intervention. Instead of taking the wait and see approach, Dr Smith promptly recommended early services, to which we agreed. The fact that she wants to address issues early before they become major issues is a huge plus.

Dr. Smith is literally the best. I couldn't hope for a better doctor. She is amazing and truly makes the far drive worth it. I wouldn't even consider trying to find another pediatrician. She always provides way more information than I expect and gives me the feedback, reassurance, and resources I need.

Took time to listen to our concerns and discuss options with us and our son. Our course of action was decided as a team approach. Dr Smith makes the parents feel confident and the kids love her.

Thorough exam and answers any questions we had. Dr erred on the side of caution with a referral to a specialist which we greatly appreciate. My kids love her and as parents she instills a sense of trust that's lacking today.
