I take my Mother to see her Doctor here once a month. The Doctors in this practice are without a doubt the most compassionate group of Doctors I have ever met. I can not say the same about the people they have answering the phones. If you mention that you are taking a pain killer be prepared to be treated like dirt. Even the tone of her voice changes like she is dealing with a drug addict. Well dear it was the Doctor you work for who prescribed this drug . She did not buy it on the street. They now have a recording that you get to talk to if you need a refill on a drug. A wonderful step up from having to talk to there office staff. Does there mission statement only apply to the Doctors? You know the part about being compassionate.

I agree with Madeline I. (below). The doctors are very compassionate but trying to even get through on the phone is ridiculous. I have tried numerous times just to continuously get a busy signal. It's easier to go out of your way and stop by the office than it is to get someone to answer the phone. Very frustrating!
Tips & Advices
A child should see his or her pediatrician frequently during the first few years. Once the child reaches age 3, parents should schedule a doctor's visit at least once per year. Before that, however, the American Academy of Pediatrics suggests parents arrange visits according to the following schedule:
  • 2 to 5 days old
  • 1 month old
  • 4 months old
  • 6 months old
  • 9 months old
  • 12 months old
  • 15 months old
  • 24 months old (2 years)
  • 30 months old (2.5 years)
No, parents should call 911, an emergency physician, or a pediatric emergency physician if a child suffers an acute illness or injuries. Doctors in these fields are more qualified than pediatricians to handle emergency situations.
A well-visit is a routine visit with a pediatrician to track a child's development, discuss medical or emotional concerns, and receive immunizations and medical advice.
Yes, pediatricians provide immunizations for infants and children up through 21 years.
No, pediatricians do not have to be board certified.They're only required to have a state license. However, certification indicates a dedication to studying pediatrics beyond the requirements.
