She seemed pretty thorough and knowledgeable. But for some reason she seemed to walk in with a bad judgement of me (or maybe she was having a bad day) and was pretty dismissive of me for no good reason. She also was not as gentle with my son as I would like and seemed to dislike him. I only saw her once but because of my bad experience I would not recommend her to anybody else. In her favor, she was on time, the staff were pretty nice, and the facility was clean and orderly.

She was so reassuring, loving and caring. Always ready to listen, and very hands on, very clear with instructions. very prompt at calling back, in emergencies.

She will try to persuade you to consider vaccines but she does it with respect and patience. She is amazing, available and has an open-mindedness that is refreshing.I deeply respect her opinions and no question is silly with her. She is a brilliant woman, a mom and has an amazing bedside manner. I almost hate to share her but after encountering some horrible docs I feel I must share with other moms.
