Horrible. Over an hour wait for a weigh-in?? An hour wait for a sick appointment? As other people have described, the wait for appointments can be atrocious at this practice. Some of the staff and nurses were quite rude, dismissive and cold. Made me wait with my very sick, crying newborn in a very small, very hot room for the doctor for over 30 minutes. No apologies whatsoever. They overbook appointments, have very little seating for their patients. You would walk in sometimes and people would be sitting on the floor. Nurses can't read a scale. Every time they took my son's weight reading, it was always wrong on the patient portal or they would read it incorrectly. I mean, where the hell do they get these people from? So, unqualified. Screw this office. I took my business elsewhere.

Wife was just released from being in the hospital for 3 months and now is paralyzed, Her office gave us a hard time scheduling an appt. even though she was our PCP, they said we needed a valid reason to come in. Then on the day of the appt. made us wait over an hour. When we finally got to see her, she proceeded to talk to us like a 2 yo, and then stormed out of the office when we questioned what she was saying and because my wife was crying. Then they messed up the script for the MRI so we needed to go back twice, once for each leg. Avoid this doctor, most rude, unprofessional and non-compassionate doctor ever. Don't count on her to handle anything worse than a cold.
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.
