Dr. C. Has been treating my child since he was an infant. After seeing a pulmonolgist who put him on meds that didn't work, we found Dr. C. She immediately put him on different meds which made a huge difference. We've been with her for 14 years and cannot say enough good things about her.

One Star

I have to say that Dr. C. was was of the most unkind and uniterested professionals I have ever seen. She told me my son's cough was "all in his head". and dismissed us. My son has reactive airway disorder and was quickly diagnosed by a second doctor who also realized my son needed his tonsils and adenoids out. I do not know if this woman has on/off days or what, but I would never recommend trusting your child to her care. If it can't be diagnosed quickly, she doesn't appear to think it is a real sickness.

Excellent Doctor

Did a great job diagnosing my child's asthma and is apparently a national experrt in asthma. We went through months of treatment before seeing Dr. C and having her start a medication that actually worked for us. We wouldn't see anyone else!

Overall had no concern for my two year old daughter

Waited over three months to be seen. We had sceduled an appointment due to wanting to identify what was causing our daughter to have an allergic reaction. We had the testing done and the results came back "negative". Within 15 minutes of our appointment, I noticed my daughter's nose start to run. Her runny nose developed into itchy eyes and within an hour her eyes had begun to turn red. By the end of the day her eyes had become extremely red and I gave her some medicine and sent her to bed. When she woke up the following day, I was shocked. Her eyes ere pure red, watery, with a runny nose - classic allergy symptoms intensified 100%. I called Dr. Chilmonczwk's office who had "no idea" what was going on, but was sure it wasn't allegies since she had tested negative. I brought my daughter to her PCP who said it appeared she was having an allergic reaction and to try and wait it out another day. Day two and my TWO year old daughter did not look any better, not even a little. I called the doctors office twice who was adamant the reaction wasn't due to allergies and would not listen to a word I said. I begged the nurses to have the doctor call me back for the escalated concern, but after 4 hours she had still not returned my call. I called my PCP again who graciously referred me to an optometrist. The optomotrist looked at my daughter and said IT WAS THE MOST AGGRAVATED CASE OF ALLERGIES HE HAD EVER SEEN!!!! He put my two year old on steroid eye drops 4x's a day sling with Benadryl. I capers Dr. Chilmonczwk's office again and demanded to speak with her. She finally spoke with me and was very uncaring and condescending. She even had the nerve to suggest that peraps on the way out of her office my daughter came in contact with someone who was in the waiting room that had a rabbit (which she was not tested for) and that may have been what caused the reaction. She took zero responsibility on herself and told me I should go elsewhere for a secon opinion (which I will be doing). If I could attach photos, I would show you on of my daughter that would blow your mind. For a doctor that infected her, did not listen and did not care. I will tell everyone I know not to go there. DO NOT PUT YOUR CHILD'S TRUST IN HER HANDS!!!!!!
