Horrible business that treats their patients badly! We have been taking our children here for years and never had a late payment for anything. Then, all of a sudden, they broke their contract with our insurance provider and continued to charge us for the full amount. I did not find this out until 3 months later when we had to pay several hundred dollars for visits that usually were covered through insurance. It is their responsibility to let their patients know when they brake contract but they refused to do so. Instead, they decided to treat their patients horribly and neglect their responsibility. I've never seen any business treat their patients like this! I will never recommend them to anyone! Please don't support their business!

We've been seeing Carrie Phillips for 3 years now for both children ages 3 and 1 shes lovely !However some of the staff like the lady Valerie who insists on not answering the phone for appointments but making you leave a message and taking her sweet time when calling back is about ridiculous.

We switched to Dr. Mahaffey when our daughter with Down Syndrome came down with Leukemia. Dr. Mahaffey is the best pediatrician ever! If she isn't positive about something, she will find out, run tests, whatever it takes. She is very thorough! She is also very patient and understanding. I can't say enough good about Dr. Mahaffey!

Dr. Ghiglino was a good doctor. His office staff however is terrible. They are rude, and rarely smile. They never make you feel comfortable, and they make it an all around uncomfortable place for parents (especially new parents). The doctor did make us feel more comfortable, but we decided to switch providers because the nursing staff is unfriendly. If you want to feel like your child is a priority this is not the place to go.

Dr. VanOstenbridge was the very first person our daughter smiled at when she was one day old. She is now nine and he is still her very favorite person in the world. He is caring, compassionate, thorough and I trust him immensely. You will find none better than Dr. VO anywhere in the area.

I was out of town but came with my friend to bring her daughter here. There were two entrances, one for sick children and one for well kids. I noticed each side had a little play area for the kids in the waiting room. Very convenient to distract them from the impending shot lol. The doctor was super friendly too.
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.
